Home schooler learns weaving in the SAORI way

Hope just recently turned 7. She is being home schooled and came for a day of weaving and sewing. She was not sure what weaving was and or if she would like it. She sat down at the SAORI Piccolo loom and I showed her a few basics and she continued to weave for the next 3 or 4 hours! She washed her weaving and hung it up on the line for the sun to dry it. She decided she wanted to sew a bag so next i set her up to making a twisted cord handle. She wanted red yarn for the strap. Then with the weaving dry I sat her down at the  sewing machine I had threaded and she sewed a simple bag with a flap that she loves! When I asked her what she thought of weaving she said " I love weaving". So iI asked "what do like about weaving?" Hope answered," everything". "This is my new favorite thing." stay tuned for more weavings from this talented creative  little person. more photos here
