As I mentioned before, we traveled to see family recently, and part of the travel was an almost 9 hour car trip. Before we went, I got one of these:
Yes, it's a $5 kid's loom that's meant to make potholders out of those little loops, but I am having so much fun with it! I used this tutorial on making coasters from The Purl Bee, with a little modification. The "pins" on my loom are set a little differently, but I was able to do the three layer warp anyway:
And then wove according to the directions:
Really the only part that need a lot of modification was the sides. Once it was all done, I felt like there was a little too much wiggle room, so I used a crochet hook to finish:
It turned out really nice, with a cute crochet edge.
My plan is to make a bunch of the squares, alternating which color I use for the warp, and then join them together to make a sweet little baby blanket. The squares go pretty quickly and are super fun to make - I highly recommend this project!
