Step by step instructions on how to weave material, vines, reeds, or what ever you can find on hand. It is simple to do and you can make ropes, clothing, groundcloth and the list is unending. The key to weaving is to take your time and not rush the job. An excellent material to weave is leather, especially if making a rope or sandle-like shoes. Look at each step closely, illustrated above, noticing which strand goes under and over what material. In figure 4, it seems a mess, to a degree, but it's really pretty clean and will eventually be completed.
Long strands of material that has been woven may be made into all sorts of clothing or even shoes, if needed. The key is to tie or sew the material together so instead of one long piece, you have folded it, secured it and fashioned something from your work.
In a survival situation you may have to use what is on hand and that means you'll likely be using some sort of plant. Vines, unless green and young, may prove hard to weave, due to stiffness, while any dried plant will not last long, even if you manage to weave it. Stick to young, bendable, plants that are easier to work with and will give you a better product when completed. Remember, by weaving a material you strengthen it as you fashion it into something useful.
Just take your time and during a survival situation you can weave your own needed items, using rope, string, rushes, grasses, or what natural material is on hand. Learn how to weave!
