Loom Bands Crazy

Hi

I have joined the crazy,  well not exactly but I keep buying them for my grand daughter Bethany, last Friday she gave me a lesson on how to make a  bracelet and key ring which is on my keys. This is the bracelet I made,  I used a French Knitting holder under instruction and this is the result. She did tell me their is not a video on YouTube about using a French Knitting Holder,  I think that was a hint,  perhaps we will give it ago next time.
The shops are full of them,  plain, spotty, and glittery ones,  in every colour you can think of.
Hope you are having a nice weekend.
Hugs
Margaret

  1. a lovely bracelet, we used to make the same from a cotton reel with 4 pins in the top and a length of wool lol.......it also got sewn into mats for the tea-pot.

  2. Hi Margaret. Well done. Looks great. My granddaughter came loaded with them on her last visit with me and I of course bought her more. Her Father told me later (quite forcefully) that I wasn't to buy her any more (I have bought a few 1000) as he had run out of arms, so had her Mother , Uncle and the the dog has a new collar.

  3. Nice and bright! I didn't know you could use a French Knitting contraption to make them, I live and learn. I did laugh at Carol's comment.

    1. So did I, Bethany made my mothers toy dog that was sat on the settee the day they came over a bracelet and left it on his paw.
