In our curriculum we have Fabric Weaving for 2nd Grade. I like the look of fabric weaving, but "WOW" ...it is labor intensive(even with the wonderful amazing rotary cutter!!!). So this year, I'm using ribbon. Expensive...yes. HOWEVER...my brother-in-law works as a property manager & evicts people for a living. Not a fun job, but someone has to do it. At one of these places...someone left behind a HUGE tub of ribbon. I wasn't sure what to use it for at first, but it has worked out amazingly well for this project!!!
So if you are gifted with a large amount of ribbon...get those kiddos weaving!!!
(I will probably go back to cutting fabric net year with a yarn warp...I just like the look better!)
