In a recent post Di was wondering if she needed to get out more - read all about it HERE. I had heard about these bracelets made from rubber bands using a fancy sort of loom but wasn't sure if I should start yet another craft. However curiosity got the better of me so I had a look around Tesco while topping up with a few food items and spotted packets of the bands but no kits or looms. I bought a couple of colours thinking that maybe I could look online and find out how to do this and happily there are designs which can be done without using a loom. The fishtail pattern I've done here can be worked on the fingers but apparently one drawback to that is being unable to put it down until it is finished so I resorted to using two pencils instead. My little bracelet was finished so quickly and I can quite see that this is something else which could become addictive so maybe, like Di, I also need to get out more!! I'm sure the bands are available in more subtle colours but all Tesco had to offer were mainly fluorescent ones. I have a more serious beaded necklace to finish off so should really apply myself to getting that done before I get sidetracked into any more odd pursuits.
