I finally dusted off the old inkle loom and made a strap for my hand-knitted treat pouch for dog training. The instructions called for a clip to attach it to your belt. I don't wear belts and having it hanging from one clip made it bunch up so it was difficult to use. I had attached a cord which worked a lot better, but didn't look all that nice. So-time to do some inkle weaving. Much better. And I can wear it under my t-shirts as a pocket when my pants are pocketless!

I did figure out how to make my own bobbins. At $20 a pop, I thought it would be worth it to make my own. I came up with this with dowels and beads. I love em. It only takes me five minutes to make one. I'm not so good at making the non-slip loop though.

I decided to make a last minute present of a needle felted sheep. Dorpers are one of the favorite breeds of sheep of people who keep sheep to train their border collies on. They are hair sheep - meaning they don't have usable fleece. They are very hardy, parasite resistant and easy keepers.They often have dark heads and white bodies although mixes come in all sorts of pretty spots and colors.
