Following my blog on me picking up a new skill (read here), I am proud to say that picking up a new skill is seriously not as difficult as I thought. All we need is a little determination and A LOT of experimentation and trial & errors…

 

Here’s what I’ve made so far, with a little ‘motivational push’ from my sons…

 

After Constantine presented the party packs and presents to his classmates (blog available here), one of his classmates asked him whether he knew how to make a Starburst bracelet. The poor boy was so clueless, he came back to me with that challenge. So, I did some research and watched some YouTube videos. After a few rounds of trial & errors, I managed to make it. Not one, not 2, but 12! All for Constantine as he said he wanted to give it to his classmates as Chinese New Year gifts…

 

This is what I made…

 

Anyway, I told him that it would be best if he was the one making it as it would be much more meaningful. Hence, I bought him his own Rainbow Loom set with all the colours that he wanted. He has been doing it ever since and is very good at making bracelets now.

 

Here’s what he has made for himself so far…

 

 

This is what he made for me and Christopher…

 

Seeing that his brother had his own set, Christopher also wanted a set of his own. I bought a set for him, but it is a basic set as he only wants his favourite coloured bands: Red, Yellow & Orange. And yes, his Loom Tool Box only has that few colours, both opaque & jelly ones…lol

 

As he is still very unsure how to make it (I think he is just not into Rainbow Loom…lol) he didn’t really make a lot of stuffs. He only completed 2 bracelets so far…1 for himself (i helped to loop the bands) and 1 for his daddy (at least he is putting efforts into completing it himself). The red 1 is his and the golden 1 is daddy’s…

 

 

I also made a few bracelets for myself & the kids (more of an experiment)…

 

 

After that, all requests for their friends’ birthday presents has departed from crochet to a ‘must’ to include Rainbow Loom…sigh…

 

So, here is what I’ve made so far…

 

Alphabet Loom Bag Tag for Christopher’s classmate…can you see the alphabet ‘Hanz’ in blue? 🙂

 

 

Loom Rabbit Charm / Keychain for Constantine’s classmate…I made a similar charm / keychain in Grey for Christopher’s classmate…

 

Loom Flower Bracelet for Constantine’s classmate…

 

 

And also some bracelets for Christopher’s classmates similar to what I’ve made for him but in different colours…

 

Well, I’m sure there will be more! 🙂
