Crafting Trend: Loom Band Creations

We have tried our hardest to resist but we can no longer ignore the latest crafty trend that is taking the world by storm, Loom Bands. Like Scoubidou and Clackers before them these little colourful elastic bands are springing up all over the place. I am sure you heard the story of the dress on ebay that allegedly made thousands?! Well I have been scouring the inter-webs for the most innovative uses for this multicoloured wonder toy to share with you.

If you are looking for some more inspiration Loom Love blog has an amazing selection of tutorials if you want to give it a go for yourselves, and check out Buzzfeeds 'Most important rainbow loom accomplishments' article for some lol's.

My favourite loom story has to be this one from American TV star Jimmy Kimmel who asked his viewers to send in a piece of looming for him to make a suit from, after receiving over 3000 pieces his wardrobe team made this amazing creation, as well as a few other garments.... click below or head over to YouTube to view the video.

I'm not sure it is my craft but I do appreciate the effort that people have gone to, to make the amazing creations. I am a fan of anything that encourages ingenuity, imagination and most of all creativity. Long live loom!
