This stick weaving tutorial will show you how to make a pouch as your first project. Stick weaving makes thin strips of woven fabric. These thin strips can then be used as is, or even joined side by side to make them wider. The sticks for stick weaving can be of various thicknesses, most often about ¼ to ½ inch. One end of the stick is tapered to a dull point. The other end has a hole through it. Stick weaving is done over 2 or more sticks usually held in the hand. The result is a strip of woven fabric.

While we are all socially isolating, I will be posing live videos on my Facebook page every weekday at 11 am Eastern (10 Central, 9 Mountain, 8 Pacific). You can give me suggestions on what you would like to learn in the comments of the videos, in my Facebook group, or as a reply to this post. This is for any craft, it does not have to be yarnie. If I can do it or figure it out, I will share it.

EDIT: Starting with July 2020 the Facebook live videos will only be on Thursdays.

If you are enjoying these videos and would like to (and are able to) donate so I can get paid for them, you can do so with the button below. Even if you can’t, please enjoy the videos. We can still be together, even when we are physically apart.
