Ribbon Weaving

In our curriculum we have Fabric Weaving for 2nd Grade.  I like the look of fabric weaving, but "WOW" is labor intensive(even with the wonderful amazing rotary cutter!!!).  So this year, I'm using ribbon.  Expensive...yes. 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!)

  1. Ooh I'm interested to see how this works out. Ribbon can be pretty slippery!
