diy weaving tutorial

Each fabric is formed by weaving, by hand or mechanically, on weaving loom.
Although it seems like a difficult process, it is not. The preparation for weaving is heavier and longer than weaving. Once you begin to weave the sky is the limit.
Today I will show you the principle of weaving on a frame. Tapestries are weaved is in this way.
I don't have the frame at home and I assume neither do you :D so we can make it ourself like this :
Take the cardboard and cut short cutouts at the same distances as in picture:Take the material with which you'll work (wool, cotton,...) and put it in a cutout. Paste it on the back of carton.Run the material through the cutouts until you get this:
These lines are called the basics.
Then take another piece of cardboard and cut it as shown in the first picture. Lift each other basic and put cardboard under them.Take the material with which you will weave, this is called a weft. Lift every other basic and pass the weft underneath. When you do this again take every other basic but the contrary of the first. So the first time lift up the basics that are on the third painting marked in orange, the second time lifting brown, then lift orange and then brown again,and so on and so on ...
After several repetitions you should have this:
After a few lines you can put some more detail:When you are finished side facing toward you is the wrong side..
So you need to cut the base..
And your mini tapestry is finished :D
