I made three potholders, and my husband loved them, they brought back so many memories to both he and I. I showed my neighbor and she begged me to make her some. She too had fond memories of making these when she was a child and wanted some to hang for decoration and even use.
I've added a picture of a little purse I made with the loom. It's made from yarn, and has enough room for a small wallet, cell phone and small comb. I'm having a ball with this little loom. There is a lot of potential if you just put your mind to it, relax and enjoy.
Also, there is plenty of loops and the colors are beautiful. Very pleased!
The loom is really sturdy. The loops can have a tendency to unravel, but their bright colors make up for that imperfection. You can easily snip off loose threads with a pair of scissors.
They make great gifts and are sturdy. I am considering buying the 10 inch version for myself.
We used looms similar to this one in art class when I was about her age. I made my share of pot holders and place mats. Great for rainy days and quiet time. All the tools seem sturdy and I like that Amazon also offers refill kits with different colors.
The loops provided--enough for six potholders with the Deluxe model-- as some people have noted, can be shaggy. Potholder loops have always had a tendency to be shaggy, but it doesn't matter for the final result. The important thing is that the loops fit--no need to discard any of them. And the colors really are lovely. [In case anybody wonders, the loops that fit my old loom also fit this one.]
I wouldn't hesitate to buy this loom as a gift for child or adult. Children can enjoy the fun and the opportunity to make good gifts for grownups. Adults never have to face the possibility of being without really good potholders. [If you don't buy the "Deluxe" loom with its ample supply of loops, I suggest that you buy the large bag of loops to go with the plain loom. Once somebody starts weaving, that person will not be satisfied with material for only two potholders. Furthermore, the more loops, the more design possibilities.
