How to Use A Weaving Loom to Make a Potholder http://www.craftprojectideas.com/index.php/how-to/basic-techniques/1261-how-to-use-a-weaving-loom-to-make-a-potholder http://www.craftprojectideas.com/index.php/how-to/basic-techniques/1261-how-to-use-a-weaving-loom-to-make-a-potholder

Step 1. Gather your supplies.



Step 2.


Attach a craft loop onto loom by stretching and lining up the loops with the prongs that are across one another.



Step 3.


Continue to attach craft loops onto loom as shown.



Step 4.


Turn loom so the attached loops are vertical. Take your crochet hook and begin weaving between your attached loops, going over one loop but under the next in a woven pattern. In our example, we were weaving from right to left.



Step 5.


Once your hook is woven through all the attached loops, attach one end of a new loop to the hook and the other to the prong as shown.



Step 6.


Pull the hook with the loop attached. This will cause the loop look to be woven throughout the attached loops. Once the hook is pulled all the way through, attach the other end of the loop to the prong. You should now have 1 loop woven through your loom. Tip: Some might also find this easier by using their fingers and not the hook!



Step 7.


Repeat steps 4 – 6 with a new loop, making sure to go complete the opposite over/under weaving pattern of the previous loop. For example: if you went under the first loop when weaving your last piece, this time start by going over.



Step 8.


Repeat steps 4-7 with additional loops until your loom is completed filled with colorful loops.



Step 9. 


To complete the pot holder, you must create a crocheted edge. Start with the first 2 loops on one side of the loom. Remove the first loop from the prong and place into the hook in your right hand.  With your left hand, remove the second loop from the prong and hold it, as shown.



Step 10.


Using the hook, thread the first loop through the second loop.



Step 11.


Release the first loop from the hook and pull the first loop to tighten. Attach this loop back to the 2nd prong.



Step 12.


Repeat step 9 with next loops, attaching loop 2 to the hook with your right hand and holding loop 3 with your left hand.



Step 13.


This time, push the left loop (#3) through the right loop (#2) with your finger.



Step 14.


Once the left loop is through, continue to pull it all the way through.



Step 15.


Remove the hook and pull the loop tight.



Step 16.


Repeat steps 12-15 around all four edges of the pot holder.



Step 17.


Once you have completed the edges, you will have 2 loops left to connect. Hold the right loop with the hook in your right hand, and he left loop with your left hand.



Step 18.


Push the left loop through the right loop with your left hand, as shown.



Step 19.


Pull the left loop tight.



Step 20.


Your pot holder is complete!

Melty Bead Basic Tips / Consejos Básicos para Cuentas Melty Bead http://www.craftprojectideas.com/index.php/how-to/basic-techniques/426-melty-bead-basic-tips http://www.craftprojectideas.com/index.php/how-to/basic-techniques/426-melty-bead-basic-tips

Find a flat surface: /Encuentra una superficie plana:

Melty Beads are a great activity to do alone or with a friend! They’re fun for a relaxing summer afternoon or a stormy evening. To work with Melty Beads, first find yourself a clean, flat surface to work. Lay down your pegboard and have your beads within easy reach. 


¡La creación artística con cuentas Melty Bead es una gran actividad para hacer sola o con una amiga! Es una actividad divertida para una tranquila tarde de verano o una noche tormentosa. Para trabajar con cuentas Melty Bead, primero encuentra una superficie plana y limpia. Pon tu tablero base para cuentas sobre la superficie y ten las cuentas al alcance de la mano.


To separate, or not to separate?/ ¿Separarlas o no?

Working with Melty Beads can be a lot of fun, but sometimes finding the perfect color beads can be a chore! If you find this a challenge, you might want to start by separating out your beads by color prior to working on projects. You can keep these beads separated into different bowls, tubs or even a reusable storage case, such as this plastic craft kit.  


Trabajar con cuentas Melty Bead puede ser muy divertido, ¡pero a veces puede ser difícil encontrar las cuentas del color perfecto! Si ves que esto te cuesta trabajo, tal vez quieras empezar por separar las cuentas por colores antes de trabajar en proyectos. Puedes mantener las cuentas separadas en tazones o cubos diferentes, o incluso en un estuche para guardar cuentas reutilizable, como este estuche artesanal de plástico.

Melty Beads


Melty Bead Art






Creating your design: / Cómo crear tu diseño:

Start creating your design by placing beads one at a time onto the pegboard. Remember that you don’t have to fill up the whole pegboard in your design. Just make sure each bead is touching at least one other bead. Tip: you might find it helpful to also use a tweezer when creating your project.


Empieza a crear tu diseño colocando cuentas, una por una, en el tablero base. Recuerda que no tienes que llenar todo el tablero para tu diseño. Sólo asegúrate de que cada cuenta toque por lo menos una otra cuenta. Consejo: tal vez te sea útil usar unas pinzas al crear tu proyecto.






Melty Bead Instructions



Ironing: / Planchado:

While you are crafting, ask an adult to preheat an iron to a medium setting, once you have finished your design, place the wax ironing sheet provided in your Melty Beads Kit over your design. Have an adult use the iron to melt the beads. Make sure to keep the iron level and apply even pressure to the entire piece. Gently iron the beads in a circular motion for 10-20 seconds or until you can see the beads melt completely together. Let your Melty Bead design cool off before removing the wax paper and before removing your design from the peg board.


Mientras estés haciendo tu proyecto, pídele a un adulto que precaliente una plancha a calor medio. Cuando termines tu diseño, colócale encima la hoja encerada para planchar que viene con tu estuche de cuentas Melty Bead. Pídele a un adulto que use la plancha para fundir las cuentas. Asegúrense de mantener la plancha nivelada y aplicar presión uniforme sobre todo el diseño. Suavemente planchen las cuentas con un movimiento circular durante 10 a 20 segundos o hasta que vean que las cuentas se han fundido por completo y se han unido. Deja que tu diseño de cuentas Melty Bead se enfríe antes de retirar el papel encerado y antes de sacar tu diseño del tablero base.






Melty Bead Directions



Peeling ironing paper: /Quita el papel encerado:

Once your design is completely cool, peel away the ironing paper and remove your design.


Ya que tu diseño se haya enfriado por completo, desprende el papel encerado y saca tu diseño del tablero base.

Working with Melty Beads

 



Finished design: / Diseño acabado:

You have now completed a Melty Bead project! Add a magnet on back to stick to display on the fridge, tie a string through the top hole and hang on your door or use them as puppets and put on a show for your family!


¡Has completado un proyecto con cuentas Melty Bead! Ponle un imán en la parte de atrás para que lo puedas pegar en el refrigerador y todos lo vean, o bien pásale un cordón por el agujero de arriba y cuélgalo en una puerta, o puedes usarlos como marionetas y presentar un espectáculo para tu familia.
