These are one of my son’s – aka Mr Happy’s – favourite rainbow loom things to make. He has made at least a dozen and given them to his mates at school. They are little bouncy balls, and are one of the main things that my kids wanted a Monster Tail Loom for. The monster […]

Rainbow Loom: Pen Accessories

When you love your rainbow loom, you create all kinds of stuff. Stuff that you want to show off!

My Little Miss has started Physie (short for Physical Culture) this year and went to her first meet a couple of weeks ago. Not long after that Think Bowtique became a sponsor here at The Crafty Mummy blog and offered to send me some ribbon to play with. “Perfect!”, I thought. I’ll make something to go […]
