Loom Band Frenzy


Angel Reign's  loom band works
         


My daughter, Angel Reign, has fancied loom bands since she first saw it on national tv with a celebrity's daughter showing it.


Angel Reign is always wanting to video her loom-band making and post it on Youtube.  I told her to wait till I buy her a box of bands :)


The bands are as elastic as it is - it can be made into different things, your imagination is the limit.  If you are going to search the net, you will find different things made from the world-famous loom bands as odd as a mini-dress for real-life human.







Loom bands are not limited to wrist bands or rings at all and it is best for doll clothes, key tags, it can also be designed on a hairband, or suspend it on an outdated earrings with the design and color of your choice..

A dozen mini-pockets of a hundred same-colored bands costs me just nearly two dollars.  A mini-drawer in six layers make my daughter's band organized  is as cheap as three dollars and she even make an addtional make-shift organizer made from used tablet-PC box, partitioned is another organizer.


The Bands

Do not go for too cheap bands it may not be elastic- some bands after first use are torn and out-of-shape.  The good ones stay the same even after it is recreated again. The bands are also available in glow-in-the-dark, glow-in-the-light and the ordinary rubber.  And of course in different colours, light ,transluscent or opaque/dark colors.



                                                          
                                                                                                                                      

The Loom

It is the platform to shape the bands to a design for easy linking. They are sold  in maybe a ruler-size piece but has locks under it that can be moved and be connected to another to form bigger loom for bigger projects.

                          
 The Hook

Hooks are looking just like a crochet needle but most are made from plastic material, pick your favorite color and you can have it.  



Here in the Philippines, even the the smallest store in the corner is selling it on a retail basis.  But wholesale buying can save us a lot, if you have extra.  There are a lot of tutorial videos on the net if still you think your child can not do it.

The loom band shorts and top  as well as the bracelets etc. shown above in photo are my daughter's (Angel) project..



The loom band frenzy has kept many children, teens and even adults braced at home away from bad influences and vices and dangers of the world outside.  

It takes creativity and meticulous planning to invent new designs.  I saw a life-size dog made from loom bands  I think presented in an expo.

There are a lot of tutorial videos on the net if still you think your child can not do it.  Go and make it your child's free time hobby. I first posted this article at rianaysobel84.xomba.com
