Ya either way is great i found it way easier to make it on my fingers though. I you do a couple it should start lookin better

SecretBanana (author)2013-12-04

I think its much easier with the loom kit. 'Cause I have it and I tried to make the fishtail bracelet your way and it did not come out well. I looked more like a zipper pattern bracelet I make with liner.
