cardboardloom craft lleft overs. My mother taught my sister and me how to make a loom from a shoebox. We cut scraps of fabric left from making our clothes, into narrow strips, tied them onto the strings and 'fed' them through one end of the box. The finished 'ropes' could be braided or tied into a circle or oval to make a 'rag rug'. The loom was not like the one pictured, but it reminded me of it.
