Gkid (age 12) requested knitting looms for Christmas, and just finished her first project, a scarf modeled after one her Mom has that she likes. My job was making the buttons. She loves all things tiger, so naturally they had to be tiger buttons!

Ply. I wasn’t sure hardwood could hold up! I considered making them out of two layers of hardwood and rounding over the edges, but I only found out she wanted them last night, and she wanted to wear it today for their weekly time in the park with other homeschool families, so I went the quick route.
Yes! Very cool. I love that you did a variation.
You could always glue up some 2-ply 1/16 hardwoods and cut them again, she can attach new deluxe buttons… the magic power of lasers!
You are the best grandmom! She looks so happy.
Those turned out really nice. My daughter makes some scarves like that, I’ll have to make her some buttons!
Your granddaughter did a great job on her first project, and the tiger buttons are the perfect finishing touch.
Looks like she is growing like a weed! Congratulations.
Great job, both of you! She’s going to be the envy of her friends. Now they’re going to want to knit their own scarves and want handmade buttons as well!
She did a wonderful job on her first project! Beautiful photo! The buttons were a great finish!
Great collaboration! You guys could sell those!
She’s grown up so much! Love the scarf.
Great she is making at a young age! And great project. A loom is nice to have and a laser helps, too!
Such a happy gkid! Well done both of you
Love them! They look really cute on the scarf, and of course the gkid.
Great job to the both of you!!
