Do you have a bunch of yarn hanging around, just looking for a project? I was given some left over yarn from both of my grandmothers. One did crochet, the other a knitter. I used the yarn to do a little sweedish weaving.
All you need is Huck cloth (a couple yards, around $10 is what I spent), a yarn needle, yarn and a pattern. Zig zag the edges. Wash and dry the cloth. Find the center and begin the pattern (a friend gave me a pattern). When you're done, sew the sides and fray the edges.
Here's my grandmother learning. Although she said she'd stick with knitting.
