Fan Shapes on Any Round Flower Loom

Fans made on a flower loom

Fan shapes make a nice addition to embroideries, doll house decorations or accessories for rag dolls.

You can make fan shapes on any round loom. I’ve used an Inox Prym loom in my tutorial, but you can also use a loom with fixed pegs.

If you want to make fan shapes on a Hana-Ami loom see my other fan-shape tutorial about making them on a loom with a centre post.

To make a fan shape you will use one peg at the bottom of your loom (on the inner or outer round of pegs), and an odd number of pegs directly on the opposite side of your loom. You can use an even number of pegs if you don’t want a loop in the centre.
