All patterns are different technology of weaving, obtained by the width of the product. Any variant can be made both from one color of elastics, and from several. The number of rows in the bracelet can vary considerably. A wide bracelet of rubber bands can be obtained on the machine, and for a narrow one it is enough to have a slingshot.

Ways of weaving

Types of bracelets of rubber are different and for the tool that was used in the work. Variants of manufacturing of products are as follows:

  • On the slingshot.
  • On the machine.
  • On fingers.
  • On the fork.

If the pattern scheme assumes the use of two elements, any method from the list is suitable for weaving. The plug can be used plastic if you remove the middle teeth from it. The four sticks also make spectacular decorations. The same options are suitable for the machine with four pins.

How to weave bracelets on a slingshot

If you have never tried to make decorations from Rainbow Loom Bands, you can start with the simplest version, which is easy to create even on your fingers - in the work usually use the index and middle of the hand that is not leading (left-righters). If you still have some devices, it is better to use them for the convenience of work, so that both hands participate in the weaving, and do not play the role of an instrument.

If you want to learn how to weave bracelets on a slingshot, you can start with the most elementary version.

Work like this:

  1. On both horns put on the first elastic band, crossed it with a figure eight.
  2. Put on the second elastic band without crossing.
  3. Raise the loops formed by the first elastic, up through the ends of the horns of the slingshot and throw off to the middle.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the desired length of the bracelet.
  5. Install the clasp-clip.

By the same technology, you can make a bracelet with beads. It will look more interesting. The only difference is that instead of empty rubber bands (an example of step 2), rubber bands are put on the horns of a slingshot, on which beads are pre-strung (usually one at a time). To do this, a rubber band is folded into the bead hole. This can be done with a needle and thread or a twisted wire loop that passes through a small hole in the bead, grabbing an elastic band.

Weaving on the machine

You can work on this device in many ways. It all depends on the number of posts used on the stand. If you take only two, then any weaving is performed in the same way as working with a slingshot or using your fingers. If you put four bars, you can create a wide bracelet of rubber bands. The principle of execution will be the same as if you work with a plug. Most often the machine is purchased in order to make complex kinds of ornaments, when a large number of benches of the machine are involved in the work.

  9. Repeat step number 7.
  10. Work in the sequence of items from No. 6 to No. 9 to the desired length of the product.

When you have one eyelet on each bar, drop the last loop on the penultimate post, the first on the second, from the third to the fourth, from the fifth to the sixth, from the seventh to the sixth. To the remaining loops, fasten the clip-clips in the correct amount. Attach the second edges of the fasteners to the first row of loops.
