Fabric Weaving Made Easy: Wefty Needle

The Wefty Needle is an easy way to weave with fabric strips.  Here is an introductory video and below are instructions on how to get started. 

Designs like tumbling blocks, stars, diamonds, and other weaving patterns can be created with the help of this tool.  Fabric strips do not have to be on the bias.  

HOW TO USE THE WEFTY

The WEFTY is designed specifically for use with fabric strips, either cut width of fabric or on the bias, single or double fold. 

Prepping Strips

Cut your strips two times the width you want your finished strip to be.  Fold edges together and press. Our bias tape makers are an easy way to make pressing easier without burning fingers!

Using the WEFTY®

Hold the WEFTY so that wording is facing up and the tapered end faces down. Thread the fabric strip into the eye of the WEFTY and fold it neatly underneath itself.

I believe that this would be a fun product and project, but it needs a pattern to help those beginning with it.

HI Mary
You weave it through the alternate strip. So you pin down your first set of strips, and then weave your other strips through them. This creates the “Warp” and “weft” to create the desired effect.
