Here’s a couple of “mug rugs” I made with kitchen cotton, warping it square and then weaving cut lengths to make the hounds-tooth pattern. You can see the crochet cotton that I chained around the edge. You have to hold the thead under the loom so it’s a little awkward at first but once you get the hang of it it goes quickly and it is tight enough to hold the threads even in the washer. I think htese are cute. Experiment!
