This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in textiles.

Demonstrate how to make a warp-faced fabric strap on a loom (i.e. inkle loom, rigid heddle, backstrap, tablet weaving).  The goal of this BB is to produce a strap that is exceptionally strong and non-stretchy with appropriate hardware attached.

Here are some hardware ideas: camera strap hardware, guitar hardware, or wide strap hardware.

Optional: add an adjustible slide to the strap.



To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - weave a strap that is a minimum of 2 inches wide by 60 inches long (recommended length while it is on the loom and under tension)
 - use materials that are clearly sturdy enough for use on an active homestead
 - hem and add hardware so you can attach it to your camera, guitar, or duffle bag

To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (less than two minutes):
 - the loom and materials you're starting with
 - the weaving in progress
 - the finished strap - at least 54" off the loom, hemmed with hardware attached preferably with a ruler or tape measure visible
