I made a weaving frame for my daughter and myself. We're switching places when one runs out of yarn. You can tell her yarns are the pinks ;)

The frame is made from thicker hazelnut branches from the grand parents backyard. It's a "little" bit wonky and wobbles but I like to work with it nevertheless :D

The warp is sturdy cotton string and the weft is left over yarn I keep for purposes like this. I'm thinking of making one solely with natural materials  as weft like willow leaves, grasses or bendable little twigs next year!

    That's a nice DIY. I like how rustic it looks, maybe it's not the right word... I used to work on a big wooden weaving machine (almost exactly like this one: https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/x/using-weaving-machine-19351949.jpg) with pedals and stuff.
    I really liked weaving. Maybe I should try making this, I still have yarn from my failed attempts at learning how to knit.

    I imagine that you two have lovely conversations while weaving. What a lovely idea! I'm going to do this with my grandaughter (when she's big enough).

    this is really cool. weaving is so therapeutic, especially with such natural materials. It would be fun to do it all with found plants

    I liked your weaving when I saw the picture, and I liked it even more when I read the description, so cute.
