Weave some fabric...

weaving 2

A piece of fabric is created when threads are interlaced.

On a loom, the threads that run through the others are known

as the weft threads, whereas the threads that run lengthwise

are known as the warp threads.

Different patterns are made by going under and over

different numbers and colours of warp threads.
