Jude taught us double weavings this week. You weave with strips that have another strip behind it (face up). After you finish weaving, you start cutting out sections revealing the bottom layers to form a design. Lots of fun but also tricky sometimes. I did the first one without a plan. For my second try, I drew a pattern before I cut. Here are some photos. Hope these inspire you to try it. Click on photos for a closer view.
