Do you keep finding these brightly coloured elastic bands around your home?
Back in February I took a job copyediting a book about a new crafting craze on the horizon called ‘loom banding’. It was completely new to me and yet 6 months later loom bands are everywhere!
The book titled, ‘Loom Band It’ by Kat Roberts and Tessa Sillars-Powell, has just been published by Apple Press.
Along with information on getting started with loom bands, it contains 60 projects ranging from starter bracelets through to more complex projects all created on two different types of looms. The five chapters include Brilliant Bracelets, Funky Accessories and Lucky Charms all featuring wearable and usable projects for your budding bandier!
I started with a basic bracelet…
And then had a go at a slightly more tricky fishtail project…
Even Mr K had a go!
It gets quite addictive and don’t say I didn’t warn you!
I have a copy of Loom Band It to give away to one of my lucky readers. All you have to do is reply to this post leaving a comment about loom banding by midnight BST on Friday 12th September and I will draw a winner from Mr K’s knitted hat. Sorry, but this giveaway is only open to UK readers.
If you can’t wait until the prize draw then Loom Band It is available online and from your local bookshop priced at £9.99.
Disclaimer: I have worked on this book and was sent a review copy by the publisher.
