Card woven belt

I've been working on a card woven belt this week. (See the previous post for more pictures of the process.)

So, after I got the weaving done I finished the ends by making twisted fringe. I could do that by hand, but having the proper tool for the job makes the process go much, much faster. I do appreciate my fringe twister!

The belt was 7' long (not counting fringe) after weaving. To wet finish it, I just threw it in the washing machine on hot. It ended up just over 6' long.

I'm pleased with the way this one turned out! This belt will probably end up being a gift. I think the next thing I want to try on the card weaving front will use a similar set up. I'd like to try double weave, to weave words. Now that I've got the hang of card weaving again, it is time to try something new.


  1. I've never heard of card weaving before. Looks really cool. Love that diamond pattern.
