To store any small, but necessarydetails, for example, ornaments, we often use caskets or boxes. The difficulty of storing these things is that they are easily lost among larger objects. Therefore, a place for their storage should be small. I propose to weave a basket of rubber bands. It can store any small things. Materials and tools:
- rubber bands of 2 colors;
Weave the machine on the machine. We need only 2 extreme rows. You can take absolutely any color. We will weave the basket from top to bottom, so first we will form the rim. It will be purple. We will take 1 rubber. We arrange them on the machine so that they cross between the pins of the machine. It is necessary to arrange the elastic bands along the entire length of the machine. This is our base series, we will not consider it. We lower the rubber bands as low as possible and lay out the next row in exactly the same way, but we do not cross the rubber bands. On each pin we have 2 rubber bands on the bottom and 2 rubber bands on top. We need to grab the bottom two hooks, pull them out and throw them through the pins into the center of the weaving. We weaved the 2nd row. Plait in the same way 2 more rows of lilac rubber bands. Apart from the basic series, we weaved 3 rows. Next we just change the rubber bands to blue (or any other). We will sew 10 more of the same series. That is, we have 1 blue rubber on the whole perimeter of the machine and drop the lower 2 rubber bands inside. Then another 1 row plaid with rubbery lilaccolor (or the same as you had the first 3 rows). The basket is ready, it remains for us to remove it from the machine and form a bottom for it. To do this, grab the bottom rubber on the last pin of the upper row of the machine. But grab it from the inside, pushing the top. This bottom rubber band is put on the last pin of the bottom row. Now we hook the inside of the last pin of the bottom row, we remove the 2 rubber bands and from the inside we get the bottom one. We pull it out and put it on the front pin. That is, we kind of put the rubber on that pin on which it was put on. And so do, hooking in each pin, in turn on the bottom row. We unfold the machine and do the same onthe top row. Pull the hook into the inside of the last pin and run 2 lilac rubber bands, the second side is thrown onto the hook and we form a knot. We fixed the loops that could dissolve. The rest are fastened together. Just remove the basket from the machine. Form the bottom, it will be blue, but you cantake and lilac. For him, we no longer need a machine. We will weave with the help of a magic ringlet. We wind three times 1 rubber blue on the hook and stretch through it another 1 rubber. On the hook 2 loops, let's pass 1 under the other. It turns out a bundle, but it is not necessary to tighten it. Return the hook to the initial ring (1 elastic) and drag through it 1 more rubber. On the hook 3 loops, hold 1 through the second and third and again draw the hook into the initial ring. Thus, the weaving continues until 6 loops are typed. The 6th loop will be on the hook. We'll put a clip on it. This is always done at the end of the series. Now we need to increase the diameter of the circle. That is, we let the hook into each loop twice. The next series will follow the 1-2-1-2 pattern. That is, through the 1st loop of the plait 1 rubber, and through the 2nd already 2 rubber bands. Through the 3 rd again 1 and so on. The next series is according to the scheme: 1-1-2-1-1-2. And one more row according to the scheme: 1-1-1. Now apply the bottom to the basket and sewelastic bands. We wind the hook through 2 loops at the bottom and through 2 loops on the basket. The hinges must be exactly one above the other. We stretch 1 lilac rubber through all the loops on the hook. We draw 1 loop through 2 and make a knot. We hook through the next 4 loops, that is, 2 - on the bottom and 2 - on the basket and again drag one rubber through all the loops on the hook. Again make a knot. So plait until we sew the bottom. This is such a simple, but beautiful basket is obtained!
