Kindergarden fun: weaving with paper or fabric strips
Weaving with paper or fabric strips is a perfect activity for small childeren. It is easy to do and it can be done with a few materials and little set up.
However also adults can have fun with this weaving technique. To create a unique, fabric weaved pillow cover, I took handdyed cotton fabric with a plain-weave, cut slits about 4cm apart across the selvedge of the fabric and ripped the fabric from each slit into wide strips. After weaving the strips I used a sewing machine to fasten the pattern.
