First tutorial in Paata Shaala- Making of flower loom patterns

Though I had created the page Paata Shala , to share my knowledge about some crafts with the readers. But no Paatas (lessons ) in Paatashala :-). Starting this with the first post containing tutorial : Making of Flower loom flowers.
The flowers can be made from yarn , by winding it to the small handy looms. The looms come in different shape and sizes. You can choose the looms according to the pattern you want to make.
Flower loom
You can take any yarn of your choice. I have selected wool yarn. Take the thread from the loom as shown.

The start winding the to the spikes of the loom, crossing in the middle.
Wind the yarn to the loom depending on the thickness you require.

After winding to required thickness, cut the yarn and insert  into a needle.

 Then insert the needle between the wound yarn so that , a knot can be tied behind.
Slowly remove the wound yarn.The below picture shows the completed flowers.


Many flowers can be made and , can be used as borders, shawl, lace etc. I have used this to make a hairband. Here it is:

Happy that, my Paata Shala has started. Many are requesting to post tutorial on screen printing. 
I will share about screen printing in the coming post. 
Until then,
Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
