I've created a line of wooden peg looms to make potholders and projects of other sizes. Read the story behind the looms and check out my etsy shop.

Look What My Sister Made…

I’ve been making CraftSanity wooden peg looms for more than two years and I’m thrilled that my little sisters have both recently gotten into weaving. Yippee!!! I just love it when they get into a craft I absolutely love.

My youngest sister, Julie, whipped up the bright pot holders above on her 17-peg CraftSanity Loom. Check out her shop if you’re interested in snagging an upcycled pot holder, a canceled stamp necklace or her other assorted vintage finds.

Seeing my sister’s pot holders reminds me to ask you what you’ve been making. Please post links to your latest projects in the comments below. I’m especially interested in hearing about the things you’ve been making for your home. Happy Wednesday!

I continue to create artwork made from old clothes and fabric cuttings. Most of my work is either created using a toothbrush handle or handwoven on a frame loom.

Again, all these were made from rags!

Our family modified the classic garden stepping stone project by reducing the size with homemade molds and adding hardware for hanging. Now we have art hanging along our fence!

Well, as a quilt-making addict, the only things I’m making for my house are quilts. Like this one for my daughter. It’s in the early stages but hopefully you can get the idea.

I do have this idea for plant pot coasters made out of wool felt. But my quilting addiction is keeping me from pursuing it. One day… :)

So glad I went to the Maker Faire with you, but now I am so addicted to making pot holders! Thanks for the post. Love your Looms. :)
