There is still a lot of looming going on at our place. Little Miss was “commissioned” by most of her class (or so it seemed to me!) to make bracelets for them, until the school reminded them that they were not supposed to be wearing jewellery at school. But she was having a ball making new designs in rainbow colours each night.
In order for her to get inspired and learn some new patterns, I gave her access to my Pinterest board. She is hooked! Now she sets herself up at the table with her loom, her box of bands and her iPod to watch videos. I love to see her using technology to learn new skills.
“Mum, Pinterest is so cool!”
Yep, Mummy knows that already!
My favourites recently are these two: a fishtail bracelet and a ring in turquoise, purple and black. (Thank you to my lovely hand model.) I could wear these colours myself. Hmmm… perhaps I’d better commission some creations too!
Check out more tutorials on my Pinterest Board: Rainbow Loom Tutorials – I’ve just added some Easter items to make including easter egg charms and baskets.
