Pretty Little Bows: Rainbow Loom Bracelet
(Rainbow Loom Bands used: Pearl Pink and White, Jelly Rose Pink, and Pearl Carribean Green)
This rainbow loom design bracelet is light and thin. Perfect for those who are not fond of the wide and thick bracelets. It is easy to do and doesn’t need too much bands. Can be made on one loom with extension and 2 loom for a full wrap bracelet. It is also reversible, the one pictured above is the signatured side. Back is just a little different than this side, but both are pretty. I choose Pretty Little Bows as the name because as you can see in the middle, they are like mini bows. So here is the tutorial.
Let’s get started!
What you need:
-A rainbow loom board in a regular set-up. That is the middle pin bar is 1 peg higher than the side pin bars on a three-pin set up. You can use 2 for a full-wrap bracelet or just 1 and add an extension. For this design, my wrist is just 1 loom and a half, but depending on what type of bands that you will use. Pearl bands usually needed 2 looms since that stretch property of those bands are not the same as compared to jellies and opaque bands.
– Rainbow loom hook or crochet hook
-Set or rainbow loom bands or any looming rubber bands that you have
– and a c-clip to fasten your bracelet
PLACING OF RL BAND
Set up your loom board in a staggered 3 pin bars set-up (the regular set-up). Make sure the arrow head of the loom is pointing away from you. Lay your 1st color bands in the middle stepping up 1 peg to make it slanted as shown in the picture. In this tutorial, I use RL Pink and White Pearl band.
Lay another bands in the middle pin bars, all the way up. I use Jelly Rose Pink bands for this layer.
Lay your perimeter band as seen on the picture, going up the loom board. I use Carribean Pearl Green bands in this sample.
And now we loop!
Turn your loom board around and start looping the first band in the middle pin bar. You can loop the middle pin bar bands up at this point or follow the looping as is along the tutorial. It is just the same.
Now, loop the side bands from the middle, back to the other end of the same band. As per the picture shown below, do this on both sides.
Loop the lower most end of the side bands (the white and pearl band on this sample) over the same peg. Do this on both sides. This looping over the peg is adapted from @loomingroach’s signatured technique. I just wonder where she is now and why deactivated her IG. She is one of the best loomers around IG when I first started.
Loop the perimeter bands up to their other end.
Repeat from Loop 1 to Loop 4, until all the bands are looped.
Put on a c-clip to join the bands securely. Don’t forget to check if all the bands are already looped. This would save you from doing the whole process over again if you ever miss just one band.
If you made it in just 1 loom, you can do a single chain for the extension before putting the ends together with a c-clip. Or you can do whichever you desired design for the extension. The bracelet is finished! I hope you enjoy this tutorial!
I might be filming all my tutorials soon, but I will still make an instructibles here in my website. It would help those people who are not really into watching YouTube but still wanted to know how to make the bracelets or to those who have slow internet connection.
So I hope you could all subscribe to my YouTube Chanel on this link: Marnelli Bacala. Thank you all in advance!
We all know most of the rainbow loom designers are anonymous and we don’t follow each other to check on each design we have come up every time. So maybe if you found someone asking if their design has been made, and you’ve notice that you already seen it somewhere, don’t hesitate to comment. If you’re too shy to type some words and hit the enter key, please care enough to DM (Direct Message) or private message that person, “Hey I think maybe someone has already did that same design, if you want to check on her/his page”. It wouldn’t hurt right?
I’m giving credit to @neon_loomer for making the same design named Entrapped Lace. The saying still proves that: Great minds, think alike!
