Spinning on the Fringe

sewing machineThat’s Doreen and Barbara checking over the “White” 1950’s sewing machine I donated to my weaving class. I had been storing this in the garage. The goal is to get a car in there before winter.

I took my rag rug off the loom today…my first project. When its done “I think” it would look cute in my daughter’s college dorm room. The plan is to finish off  the rug with fringe, using the Conair Hair BraiderconairbraiderI got this on ebay. It was a toy for tweens maybe 5 years ago. It is perfect for making a Z and or S twist.

I put six strands of weft in each of two clips on the hair braider. Spun them in a Z direction and then flipped the switch down (battery operated) and spun an S twist. I then knotted it. Voila! Even, neat and very professional looking.
