Vintage Crafts:Nelly Bee Weaving Loom

NellyBee6
In early July, Lily attended a quilting and weaving summer camp and expressed an interest in further weaving projects.  A couple of years ago my sister gave me a vintage 1945-ish Nelly Bee metal weaving loom. It has been sitting in my craft room waiting for some love and the timing was right.  I was so excited when I spotted some craft loops at Michaels for a couple of dollars per bag.  These “Color Zone”  loops work perfectly with the Nelly Bee loom!

This loom has been perfect for young fingers. I have scanned the instructions below.

These projects will be doll house carpets.

If you spot one of these looms at the thrifts, I highly recommend it!  Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
