How To Craft A Lovely llama
Draw the shape of a llama on paper. Use it as your template to draw one onto card. Cut it out, paint it and leave it to dry. Use a felt tip pen to define the edges of the card.
Along the section between the llama’s head and back leg, make an odd number of snips that are evenly spaced out along the top and bottom. This one has seven snips.
Choose a yarn to make the loom; here it’s purple. Tape it to the back. Pull it to the front and wrap it once around from the top snip to the bottom snip and do this all the way along. At the end, cut off the yarn and tape the end on the back.
Cut a small piece of yarn and tie it to the bottom corner strand.
Begin weaving! Pull your yarn in and out between the strands. To change colour, tie on your new colour and keep weaving until your llama is wearing a colourful woven blanket.
Stick on some pompoms, draw on your face, add any other details… then say hello to your new llama pal!
