What is the difference between 'Sew' and 'Weave'?

Sew means sewing. The literal meaning is - to join, fasten, or repair (something) by making stitches with a needle and thread or a sewing machine. It means joining together by sewing with a needle or machine.

weave means woven. The literal meaning is - form (fabric or a fabric item) by interlacing long threads passing in one direction with others at a right angle to them. Made by joining a long thread from one side with a thread at right angles to it.

Eg - Loom. Here it is made exactly as mentioned above, so we say weaving, but not sewing.
