One of the most favorite types of weaving isbracelet from gum "fish tail". Why it is so named - the question does not arise, just look at the picture, which forms the interweaving of elastic bands. And that's why it’s easy to explain, darling: weaving is so easy and uncomplicated that babies of 3-4 years also join handicraft and gladly make cute jewelry for themselves and their mothers (and also develop fine motor skills in such a way and prepare little fingers to the letter). In our master class it is shown in detail how to weave bracelets from “Fishtail” rubber bands. And if someone has any questions - ask them in the comments, we are always happy to answer them!
So, to weave a bracelet from gum "Fishtail", you will need:
hook; machine-fork (we have - a large machine,but for convenience of photography, it’s quite convenient to weave on the “fork”); eight-clasp; gum for weaving. Here such a slingshot is an indispensable tool in the weaving of the “fish tail”. I suggest weaving a rainbow fishtail,dividing gum colors rainbow black or white. Accordingly, you will need gum red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. If, besides blue, there is also blue, then great - there will be a real seven-color rainbow!
How to weave bracelets "Fish tail" of rubber bands: description of work
We put the first rubber band (black) on the slingshot with the figure eight, twisting it in the middle, like this: Then we put on two more (red and black again) in the usual way, without an overlap. The left edge of the lower (black) gum is crocheted, we hook the hook to the left and remove the loop from the post: Do the same with the right edge - and our gum is taken off. Weaving started! In the usual way, we put an orange gum on both columns. Hook up the bottom red rubber band and remove it from the left, circling around the slingshot post, as we did with the black rubber band. The same - on the right side. We put on another slingshot (black) gum. You have probably already understood the principle of weaving a “Fishtail” bracelet. Now we remove the lower black gum, pulling the hinges left and right and removing them from the slingshots, leaving as if to hang on the elastic bands worn over. Now - the turn of the yellow gum. We put it on the slingshot, and then throw off both sides of the bottom, orange, gum. We continue weaving, putting on the next gum and dropping on it the hinges of the lower elastic band. Observe the sequence of colors of the rainbow. Our "fish tail" is already in full swing: We bracelet we need the length. Go to fasten the fastener. When we have already woven the cord of the desired length, we stop adding new rubber bands, but in the usual way we throw off the loop of the last but one elastic band up. On the posts, only one rubber was put on. Carefully remove the bracelet from the slingshot, holding the unclosed hinges with your fingers. Their together. And fix one side of the buckle-eight. Attach the tail of the bracelet to the second part of the buckle. Done! As you can see, weaving a bracelet "Fishtail" is very, very simple. And also - very fast! Enjoy your creativity!
