BTG - Making DIY Leashes

Leashes are useful when you have a frame loom where only one shed is open, and you have to finger pick or needle weave in the opposite direction. 

You will only need a couple of G clamps, some dowelling, masking tape, warp and a small spirit level. Your frame should be warped going over the top and bottom so you have a natural open shed.
