Pin-Striped Pin-Loom Pillow
If you think pin looms are just for plain weave, think again. Deborah Bagley found booklets from the mid-1900s that feature pin loom weaving patterns that are anything but plain. She based her Pin-Striped Pin-Loom Pillow on float patterns she found that add texture, and then she added colors to enhance that texture. —Susan
