And came to me, a weaver of bands, to help her make a ukulele strap. Meta is the one on the left out front.
Macrame was popular too back then, but most people liked the smooth, tight woven bands you could make on an inkle.
We used mostly cotton yarns with bright colors and plain patterns. Today we have so many different fibers to choose from, colors and patterns plain and fancy.
So when Meta wanted to weave her own band, she chose this watermelon pattern. I showed her how to measure, cut, warp and weave and she did a nice job.
Would you like to learn how to weave plain and fancy patterns on a small band, inkle or box loom? See my web site on Tape Looms at www.eastknollpottery.com or order on Amazon, my book, Tape Loom Weaving, simplified. It will show you how to make a simple loom and how to weave basic and fancy patterns.
