Weaving is more popular than ever, so why not join the biggest trend - in miniature.

Discover over 20 cute projects to weave in this beautiful book by multi-crafter Harumi Kageyama.

You can try different materials, from classic yarn to more novel materials such as ribbon, suede and pipe cleaners. Don't be afraid to adapt the designs for a whole different look!

Small projects mean small looms, and Harumi shows how easy these are to make with a few materials you can find at home such as cardboard, paper, pins, wood and nails. These do-it-yourself looms are perfect for crafting on the go, and are small enough to take with you as a portable travel craft or outside pastime.

When I was a child I made a loom out of an old picture frame, and wove an Alice band on it. This innovative book shows how you can weave all kinds of small items on looms made from boxes, cardboard tubes, wooden boards, twigs or just card.

Anybody who regularly reads my reviews will know I am always looking for new ways of recycling things, and here is a good one. Weave outside using yarn and twigs, cut out card circles, roll up card or hammer nails into wooden boxes or (like me) old frames. With a table fork for a beater, crochet hook and tapestry needle, hammer and nails you will probably be able to make any of the looms, all of which are so simple to make that instructions are kept to a minimum. There are plenty of clear photographic steps to stringing the looms, weaving and finishing off, and of course projects. Cover buttons, weave mats, create jewellery, wall hangings, napkin rings, wallets, bunting and more (no Alice bands). My favourites have to be the tote bag and matching clutch purse, showing that you can do a lot with a little. The threads used include all kinds of yarns but also ribbons, strips of suede and even chenilles (pipe cleaners). The projects have clear diagrams and instructions; if you are new to this sort of thing I advise starting with the simpler looms and items first. Recycling has never been so much fun!
