For the baby who dreams big and plans ahead, this "Hogwarts hopeful" pacifier clip is perfect. One end clips to the baby's clothes or blanket. The other end folds around the pacifier and closes with a handy snap (no Velcro to catch on baby's blanket or button to drive you crazy trying to fasten it).
I wove this tablet-woven band using 40 tablets and 160 individual threads.
Tablet (or card) weaving creates narrow bands of cloth. The weaving method was used extensively in northern Europe during the Middle Ages. Archaeologists have found tablet-woven bands dating to the 3rd century A.D. (C.E.). Weaving tablets have been found dated to about 400 B.C. (B.C.E.). Tablet weaving was also practiced in Egypt, China, and Japan.
Although today tablets are usually made from cardboard, in medieval Europe they were constructed from wood, ivory, bone, horn, leather, and a variety of other materials.
Tablet weaving produces a double-thick, warp-faced fabric.
