Review:
Get a quick-start learning tapestry weaving by first doing a small, easy project: a bracelet in the simple "Tile" pattern. The yarn is stitched on perforated plastic, which is easier to handle than traditional canvas. Easy to-understand, well-illustrated instructions show how to do every detail. There are enough materials for making 15 or more (depending on width) bracelets for oneself or friends, and ideas for creating new designs by varying the size and colors, or combining patterns. There are even blank printed bracelets on which children can try design ideas with crayons or markers. Photocopying that page would provide a supply of blanks so children can continue to experiment with new designs.
