Weave a flock of birds using Fantasia acrylic yarn maxi and glue on craft felt eyes, beak and wings. The birds are easy to weave on a home-made loom made from a piece of cardboard with warp threads wrapped around it.
How to do it
Guide step 1
Step 1.
Cut a 14 x 18 cm piece of cardboard from a cardboard box. Cut grooves at the top and bottom spaced 1 cm apart. Wrap warp threads (thin cotton twine) around the grooves, for example 13 warp threads on the front and back as shown in this picture. Wrap an additional warp thread around the first and last grooves to keep the threads taut.
Guide step 2
Step 2.
Weave in and out with maxi acrylic yarn threaded onto a cross stitch needle. You may either secure all the ends on the back or tie knots at the sides when changing colour.
Guide step 3
Step 3.
Cut the warp thread loops in the middle on the back. Tie them together in pairs with small knots at the top and bottom to prevent the woven section from sliding.
Guide step 4
Step 4.
Gather all the warp threads at the top with a knot. Divide the warp threads at the bottom into two 'bundles' and tie each 'bundle' with a knot for the bird's legs.
Guide step 5
Step 5.
Cut the eyes, the beak and the wings from craft felt and glue on with textile glue. Push a stick through the warp threads at the bottom for the bird to perch on.
