I cannot say enough about these wonderful little looms from Purl & Loop. Affordable, functional and downright Adorable! Need it really fast? Shipping upgrade available in options for Priority Mail.
The Minute Weaver™ is designed to self teach the very basics of weaving in 30 minutes or less. It is teeny tiny and super quick. Great to tuck into your purse, craft bag or luggage. This is ideal for users who may not want to spend too much time or money in a class or on a larger, more complicated loom product before having a basic understanding of weaving. The results are micro 2” squares that can be stitched together for a larger project. Individually, they might be considered a shot glass or demitasse coaster. Yarn/thread requirements range from 3.5 - 6.5 yards depending on weight or thickness. Choose any loom or the set of ALL THREE from the drop down box at upper right.
This link will take you to one my favorite projects for this loom. I saw this for the first time at a trade show and it's the cutest pin cushion ever:
