If you enjoy inkle weaving and find yourself turning out band after band, you might be wondering what to do with them all.
We put together an All Access Skill Guide on inkle weaving essentials a few weeks ago. In this handy-dandy guide, we included all the information you need to start weaving on an inkle loom, including creative and fun uses for your inkle bands. We loved this list so much that we wanted to share these project ideas from the skill guide with everyone! Here are 10 clever ideas for using your inkle bands—from tried-and-true to mind-blowingly creative—straight from the pages of Easy Weaving with Little Looms.
A classic for a reason, bookmarks take minimal finishing and make a great gift.
