I've been having my middle school students weave small bags during our unit
on Colonial Arts and Crafts. My 3rd group is finishing up now, and they
have really loved this project! I've got pretty good pictures that show how
to set up the cardboard loom:

This particular group has taken this project way beyond the initial concept:
in addition to including braided drawstrings (so that the bags can close),
many have embroidered their initials on the bag with yarn (don't have any of
those pictured yet).

I did circular weaving with some middle school students last year, but the
bags have been a real hit--most kids are already using them to hold money
for snacks!
