A little Miscellany - cards and Loom Bands

Life seems to have overtaken me recently as mentioned in my last post, what with the big "0" party, visitors, my actual birthday, medical and dental matters, and then to add into the mix the  hospitalisation of my son-in-law with a burst appendix and peritonitis, so I have failed to blog.  So here is a little catch up!

Whilst her mum was on anytime visiting, I had my granddaughter on a couple of days, and she taught me how to make some loom band charms.   We made a little dress each and an initial:

my efforts on right 

We then decided to make a couple of bracelets, in a technique we had already learned, but this time, using double bands for the edge to make it firmer.  It worked really well..  Shall do it this way again.

Also used the bands for some french knitting, to make this key fob, to which I added the dress I made earlier.

and another little bit of french knitting, using our young visitor's gadget

and finally my clever granddaughter, made this cover for her i-phone.  Brilliant isn't it!  Even the "button" fastening was incorporated into the weaving design, and I love the pointed flap.

Thanks for dropping by.  Now to upload some more bits on next edition!
