Do you have extra fabric laying around and need to find something to do with it? You can easily cut fabric into strips and use it for a crochet or weaving project.
Step 1: Fold fabric in half, bringing the selvage edges together and making sure they are even. Fold again in this direction, bringing the center fold up to 1/2″ below the selvage edges.
Step 2: Using one of Clover’s Rotary Cutters, cut fabric strips, cutting through the folds, but not through the selvages. Tip: Don’t worry if the lines are not too straight, it will not show in your woven piece. Step 3: Unfold fabric by separating the selvages. Now begin cutting into strips: at the top of the fabric, cut the first strip then cut every two. For the bottom strips you cut every two.
Then wrap continuous strip around an object such as a slender box.
You’re ready to weave!
