I grabbed this (presumably) unfinished loom project when I was in Seattle last month. I knew it could be much better so I went about 'fixing' it.
The first thing I did was cut off the bottom dowel. Wait that's not true, the first thing I did was spray it with hot water and Febreeze...After I sprayed the Heebie Jeebies off of it and cut off the bottom dowel. I knotted the loose ends. Observe.
After the knots I then took some embroidery thread and braided a length of it and knotted around the top dowel. Much better.
Now I have the problem of not knowing what to do with it. I've never had the problem of having too much wall space. I have art coming out of my ears. I may just end up selling it.
