The new Mat Maker and Rug loom

The new rug looms seems to be stirring up a bit of interest, I love it myself. I wove another place-mat yesterday after noon on the deck while listening to the game. Did not take very long, either. I want this set for the patio table. I like this bright red knit but I got a blister from the scissors cutting these strips last time and I need more. I might get out the rotary cutter and see if I can use that this time. This is a bit heavier than your average Tee shirt fabric. I have done a few using Tee shirt which I cut with the rotary cutter. Still, it was worth the blister! I like the way they turned out.

I have a ton of ideas for this loom, I think I’ll be using it a lot.

An FO!

I finished my orange woven top at last! It’s a little loose,(which makes a nice change! lol) but fits pretty well, all in all. I am quite pleased with it. I’m not sure how long it took to make but since it was only one among many projects it don’t think it took too long.
It was all woven on the Multi looms. Mostly the 6″ square with some help from the two triangles.
