Bohunter,

I average about 10 square inches an hour regardless of width. But I am an exception to the norm and have done A LOT of loomwork. I find the most critical element of time usage is the complexity of the pattern. Some simple patterns I do in my head and they go quick. If I have to follow a drawn pattern, such as when doing letters or realistic shapes, you can increase the time by 1/3 to 1/2. Also depends greatly on the materials you use.

Also have to figure out how long it will take to set up the project and to finish it if mounting needs to be done.

You have an excelent eye for your work! I really was impressed with the design, & I too find beading to be very relaxing. Keep Up the great work!

Beadman is like a machine when it comes to doing loomwork, so take his estimate and multiply that by 5!!! LOL
But he is right. a simple design can be done a lot faster than a complex one. The eagle belt I made took.....about 4 months and that was because Beadman continued to provide me with much needed.....kicking in the butt to finish.

Beadman glad to see you too!! LOL As far as my turtle speed approach to craftwork. Well, eventually I do finish a project or two. Even if it requires my friends kicking me in the butt all the time to stay motivated.
No way am I attempting the last supper!!! LOL Not even if I was given a lifetime supply of free beads and paid to do it.....how much are we talking about anyway???

Hawk_FeatherJY From what I could tell from your picture, it looks like you used plywood to make your loom. If so, you might try using thicker wood in the future. I started making my looms out 2"x6" or wider pieces wood. The 2" wood keeps the loom from bowing, twisting, cracking, and breaking while you are in the middle of a piece of beadwork.
Keep your chin up though, I broke warp threads 3 times in after being over half way done with my belt. I was ready to cry!!! With a few tips and taking my time, I was able to replace the warp threads and continue on with my work.

No problem EP. I sent you a pm too.

For all those who thought I was posting some new loom work pics, sorry to disappoint. LOL I was Hijacking my own thread to help EP out. And now we return to our original broadcast

So if anyone has some nice loomwork they are wanting to share....this thread has been kinda dead for a while.

I taught my son to do loomwork over the summer. Here is his first piece of loomwork. 1" wide, 9 1/2" long using size 11's. It's still on the loom because he hasn't decided what he wants to do with it yet.

Loom Beading

Neebie here on posting,
I am trying to learn loom beading and plan on making a hat band for a hat I wear in summer. Great tuturiol, helps me a lot.

Have a few questions.

On patterns or if you make your own design (which I am not) at present cause just learning, but how do you know how wide your loom piece will be?

Do most put a backing on the beads when done, if so, what do you use?

For new loom beaders what size bead is best to use or does it matter?

Guess that's it for right now.
BTW so nice to have a place to learn things that when trying to learn on your own you can find help.

Wolfsong: The best way to describe it is like this... you can decide how wide your band needs to be. Once you know that, you can in turn decide what size beads you need. In the end if you have a pattern alread made the size of the beads will determine how wide the strip ends up so the strip made in 13o is smaller than the same strip made with 11's. I would suggest for a first timer to use big beads like an 11o because you get a feel or the work faster and the project will go faster. After you are comfortable with the way to do it then you can start getting all small with your beads and elaborate with your designs. Just a thought. As far as backings go, I don't know... I don't do it. Really that would depend on the project I would guess.

Spotty,
The kid's beadwork is a heck of a lot better than his dad's photography!

Wolfsong. Once you start to do beadwork you'll figure out quick how big to make things. and yes, size does matter (leave it up to Fat Albert to bring that one up). Backing is a good idea for a hatband, but remember that the backing will add just a little bit of length to the total beadwork.
