Café Loops with Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 01-May-2013
These are very simple to make and the size will depend a little on the size of the project you are trying to hang. You can use them to hang quilts. But I would suggest you make the loops bigger and more of them so that the weight is distributed more evenly. With this type of hanging system, you would expect to have a nice pole or similar on show.
