04:11 pm - Cottage industries.
I was wondering what people on here think about cottage industries. I'm currently working on a farm that has a weaving business for money, and most of the food we produce is for us and our friends.

Tablet woven belt Tablet woven belt

This is a belt I tablet (or card) wove. Weaving in general and tablet weaving in particular is my favorite form of crafting. For anyone interested, here's a set of directions: http://www.primitive.org/weaving.htm.

The main differences I'd add would be, 1. I use a dead deck of cards with holes punched in them for my tablets, I'm all about recycling! 2. I make all kinds of stuff, not just straps, just adding what ever length plus 12 inches to factor in for the fringes and cards, for anything from key chains to belts. More or less cards, and thickness of yarn are factors for how wide it should be.

Oh, that's cool! I've heard of tablet weaving, but I've never seen examples of it.
