I’ve completed the second tape. As you can see from the photos below, the first tape that was completed with the paddle loom alone, backstgrap fashion, has very inconsistent widths. The second, my first tape on the cradle loom, was much more consistent. With some practice, I should be able to produce fairly consistent tapes.

The next project I’d like to try on this loom is with finer cotton thread and a floating pattern weft. I’ll keep you posted.

    Wow! Love your site and your “tapes”. Will refer others. As you can see from my first attempts, I know it’s not as easy as it looks. Tropical Twister
