Hula Hoop Weaving

I still subscribe to Family Fun Magazine. They have great craft, game, recipe ideas and I still just love to look through a good magazine. We got our March issue and in it was an article on weaving with a Hula Hoop. Oldest daughter had been looking at the magazine while having a snack one day and decided that she just HAD to try it out.
She cut up all her (and some of her siblings) old soccer uniforms and started weaving. Our hula hoop is much smaller than the one called for, but it worked like charm!
Here is the first one completed!
And now she can't stop - she has used up the uniforms and is now cutting up shirts and sweaters that her siblings have grown out of and no one else wants. She is talking about somehow attaching them all and making a small rug for her room!! How great is that! A regular chip off the old block.
This is a close up of one of the little woven circles. This is made of soccer and basketball uniforms. I must say I think this is pretty neat.
