Rubber Band Jewelry

It started when two of my grandsons wanted Rainbow looms. Then I went over to CJ's house and there he was working on it. He's been doing some amazing stuff. Crafter that I am, I HAD to learn. I didn't want to spend $15 on a loom, but when I saw the Monstertail loom I got it. Now I've been making them.

These are what CJ made for me:

I'm going to have to spend time with him (what a hardship, LOL) and learn how to use the Rainbow Loom. But this is what I've been doing with the Monster Tail:
basic simple patterns with the Monstertail loom

This thick one is a triple criss-cross pattern. I put beads on the edge bands. I don't like how the c-clip closures look, so I covered them with a button.

There are an incredible amount of video tutorial for these bracelets, from simple to complex. It's a lot of fun. However. I have to figure out who to give these to. ;)

About Me

My photo
just a crafty grandma experimenting with all sorts of things. My main interests are paper craft of any kind and quilting/sewing. But I've done leatherwork, polymer clay, on-the-wheel pottery, painted molded ceramics, papier mache, stained glass, plaster casting, linoleum printing, paper making... you name it, I've probably tried it. A few I actually stuck with. :)
