How are you today? Me? Been very busy lately, specially when it’s school season. I got two students I need to attend to everyday, not only on weekdays but specially on weekends. So, please bear with me if I haven’t been working on posting for updates.
I slipped on the floor today, poor me! My butt still aches because of it. I was rushing to the comfort room when it happen. I don’t usually rush myself because I know I might slip anytime if I care less. I’m flat footed and easily slip. But I need to go or I’ll pee myself out. Well, well. Careless.
Back to the topic.
You have probably seen so many tutorials on how to do the Fishtail Bracelet. But, as for the record I would like to re-do this for my own and of course for my kids too. It might also cross anyone who wanted to know where all bracelet designs on rainbow loom started before it became complicated.
You can actually do this using only your two fingers, but as for the purpose of using the rainbow loom tools, why not use it right? After all this is what it is for.
To anybody who didn’t know, this is what a Fishtail Bracelet looks like.
Fishtail Bracelet on Mini Loom
(Category: Beginner, Easy)
What you will need:
2. Bands. Any color you like. You can use two colors or as many as you want.
3. C-Clip or S-Clip.
How to do it:
First, thing is you need to decide on what pattern of color do you want to make. In my sample, I used 2 different color bands. For every 2 colors after 5 loops, I change it to another 2 color bands. First is yellow-pink, then pink-purple and so on.
1. To start the fishtail bracelet, make an “8” figure by twisting the bands over the mini loom. It should be like this.
2. Next, layer your bands up to three (including the first band). This time, you don’t have to twist it. If you are using different color bands, make sure you alternate them when you place them in layers, or if you want other design you may do so. A tip, I make sure the bands I layered are not twisted, so that the outcome bracelet is neat.
After that, we will start looping the bands.
3. Hook the first band (in this sample, the yellow band in figure 8) over the two bands.
The first yellow bands should be now on the middle after hooking on both sides.
4. Then add on another band on the top layer.
5. Hook again, the first layer band, which is now the jelly pink band on the sample, over the top 2 layer bands.
6. After sometime, adding bands to the top of the mini loom, you will see the bracelet forming at the bottom.
7. From this point on, you will always remember 2 things on looping the fishtail bracelet:
A. There should always be three bands.
B. You will hook only the very bottom layer OVER the two layers before adding another band on the topmost layer.
Do this step until you’ve reached the desired length of your bracelet.
8. Secure the end of the fishtail bracelet by clipping it together with C or S clip.
9. Finished fishtail bracelet!
I hope you enjoy and learn something from this post.
