Backstrap Weaving – Making Heddles

Backstrap weaving using the minimum required while making fabric, and can be improvised anywhere you can acquire stick like objects.

I’ve been diving into youtube looking for helpful videos on how to set up and weave, and this is an unordered collection of links to videos and sites that intrigued me:

I am intrigued by the variety of heddles and how tightly they are attached to the heddle stick, because these three offer three separate options.  If you want to weave using more than 2 sheds, you can add additional heddle sticks to accomplish that.  The biggest challenge seems to be keeping the length of the heddles consistent: this is less of a problem with the first two methods, where the loops aren’t tied in place.
