You will need some duck tape (Duck tape works well otherwise you could use paracord, old fabric strips, or something like that.), scissors, and a ruler (optional)
Step 2: Making Your Strips
Start out with your main color. This will be the strips going vertical. Make as many as those as you want and lay them out so the touch each other from top to bottom. You will cut your strip, then fold it in half the hot dog way (length wise) and then lay them out like it said above.
Step 3: Getting Your Strips Firm And In Place
Use duck tape to hold the top strips down in place good. Just take a strip as long as it is horizontally, and stick in so half of the sticky is on the strips, and half is on your workspace.
Step 4: Learning To Weave
To start your weave, take a strip of your tape just a little longer than the length of your other color or vertical strips. Cut that out. Make as many more as you need to fill up the whole space. With your new strips, you will take one and go under the first color, then over it, the under, then over, and so on until you've finished that section. Take another strip and weave that so it will start by going over, under, over, under and keep going that too. Go back to under first, for your third, and keep doing that until you've run out of strips. It should look like a checker board.
Step 5: Viola!
Now all you have to do is trim of excess edges and cover them duck tape, or sew it. Secure it on all edges and... Viola! You've mastered the art of basic weaving. :) Follow me, comment, favorite and vote!! Thank you so much! Hope you have fun with your weaving!
