How to Finish a Weaving Loom Project
Weaving looms are always a fun thing to do, people get intrigued by seeing the techniques and outputs obtained by weaving, but sometimes the beginners fall prey to the complexity of ending the loom. For this reason today, we are suggesting the technique of how to finish a weaving loom project, which will help them to get rid of such confusion and make their work much fruitful.
There are two parts for this entire process to get completed because the weaving is always started from the top, and it is finished at the bottom, so two sets are warp threads that are suspended on either end. We have to manage all these warp threads, and then our total weaving the loom will be finished. This is a natural process, and anybody who is inclined to weaving can apply this procedure to complete the work.
So at first, let us start from the lower end. We have chosen the lower end because it will allow us to maintain the tension of the warp threads around the whole surface of the loom. There are suspended threads at this end, which are not knotted, as they are not fastened, so is it such easy for the strands to fall into any pulling, and this will reduce the sturdiness of the weave, the stitch may also get unraveled.
In this case, we have to align all the loose ends with similar lengths, and this will maintain the tension around the whole surface at a minimum and equivalent level. Now we have to take two strings and tie a knot to them. We suggest that you always use the overhead knots because they are much firm and there is less possibility of falling or slipping off. Now when you have even several suspended treads, you can take two to perform the knots.
But for the odd numbers of warp threads, we prefer that you take the last three strands together to tie the knot in this manner. All the knots will be tied, and at the edge of the loom, there will be a sturdy loop created. Now take a needle, put them through two to three loops on the side, and then insert the remaining part of the knotted thread through the needle’s hole and stitch them inwards the loom. Thus the free ends will get attached in the opposite direction.
And there will be no hanging threads on the loom. The last step is to take a scissor and cut the extra unknotted wrap thread, and thus you will have a full finished weaving loom project. For the upper end, you have to repeat the same process, and this will be much easier because you will not have to tie any knot; instead, there will be rings formed by the weaving technique. You have to take them and sew those inwards and cut them with a scissor.
Lastly, we would like to infer that the technique that we have mentioned here will be much helpful to finish the weaving projects that you have undertaken, and this will allow the beginners to improve their skills as well as have sound output from their task. Happy weaving! Have a good day!!
