Introduction

Use strips of satin ribbon and threads to weave a mat on a piece of cardboard.

    • Handle the scissors with care

  1. Take a 10cm X 10cm piece of thick cardboard; leaving a 1cm  margin on all the sides, draw a line
    • Take a 10cm X 10cm piece of thick cardboard; leaving a 1cm margin on all the sides, draw a line

    • Mark lines 7mm apart on opposite margins of the cardboard

    • Using a scissor, make small cuts along each of these lines as shown

    • Take an ice cream stick and make a small hole near one end of the stick.

    • Insert the satin tape through the hole

    • Next, take out the given woolen thread

    • Take wool and fix it with a tape on on one side of the cardboard.

    • Weave it vertically across the slits going over and under the slits, creating an array of parallel lines

    • Take the ice cream stick with satin tape and weave it horizontally across the wool going over and under the wool.

    • When you finish weaving along one length, turn back and weave the 2nd row and so on in a zigzag fashion

    • Continue weaving till you cover the cardboard piece with satin

    • Make sure the satin tape is secure in the ice cream stick

    • The woolen lines need to be evenly spaced

    • Be neat while weaving; don't leave gaps and do not overlap

    • Carefully observe the weaving pattern. Can you relate this pattern to your clothes?

    • Is weaving always crisscross? Or can you think of any other pattern which is robust?
