We are making the single pattern WITHOUT a loom!!! I think it's much easier and takes less time. If you are making more advanced patterns you will need the loom.
Rubber bands with "C" clips!!!!
You just fold, put the next color through the loops, and fold...repeat until you have the desired length
We used 19 for my little boy (small wrist) and he likes the long open rubber band at the end. ((80 for the necklace))
You can use a C clip that comes with the rubber bands or watch the video for an optional way to end the bracelets.
The looms and rubber bands are sold out in most stores here and our Michael's Craft store didn't even know what they were. :( We purchased one from Amazon along with the rubber bands.
ANY SO MANY COLORS!!!!!
In the craft room making MORE!!!
