How to make a Rubber band companion!

material:
Loom
Hook
48 loom rubber bands (4 different colors)

Step 1: Starting the Body

1. Pick the color you want for the body.

2. Start with 6 rubber bands. Make an infinity loop but stretch it 2.

3. then add one sing rubber band around it to form a Dimond shape.

3. add rubber

Step 2: Working Around the Body

1. stretch one rubber band down.

2. Then the one on top of it you put back.

Step 3: Adding the Eyes

1. Pick a color for the eyes. (2 rubber bands white and blue for example.)

2. Wrap the white around the hook twice.

3. Then you add a pink rubber band around the hook. add to the eye color.

4. add to the rubber band guy.

Step 4: Adding the Feet

1. On the hook make the feet
2. Add the feet above the eyes.

Step 5: Taking the Body Off the Loom

1. your rubber band guy should look like picture one.

2. work your way clockwise to take the guy off the hook.

3. he should end up on the hook.

Step 6: Adding the Cotton Ball

1. Work the rubber bands over each other until the guy comes off.

2. Add a cotton ball. I had to remove a little of the cotton Ball to get it to fit. you can also stuff it with tissue or cloth.

3. Just work the cotton inside the guy until it is round and you can see no cotton from the outside.

Step 7: Finished

Here is your little rubber band guy named "Wilson."

This Instructable was made by my 10 year old daughter. The instructions aren't exact........its her first Instructables. :) so we tried to take as many pictures as possible!

She found this idea on YouTube. It was called "Fuzzies 3D"

    impossible, can you put more detailed instructions? i really want to make it :(

    This is so beautiful. A video would help as it is so difficult to explain rainbow loom.

    "D.I.Y. Mommy" has a video showing how to make her "fuzzy loom friends". You can find it on YouTube or at loomlove.com. One of the first things I made when I got my loom, though I never could get mine to look as beautiful as this one does. I always do something wrong.

    Thank you so much for posting the link!

    You're welcome. I hope you don't mind me butting in. I do that a lot.

    I practically lived at Loom Love when I got my first loom.I have started learning to do the hook only crochet designs now, since I look a little silly wearing jewelry made out of rubber bands at my age, with no children around.

    Oops, I just saw the credit at the bottom for the "Fuzzies 3D" video. It looks like this one is very similar to the "Fuzzy Loom Friends".

    Great job for a first Instructable. :)

    It's really hard to explain step by step how to do a loom bands project. I know because I tried and I couldn't even get mine done in time to enter the contest.

    Good luck!
