- one impend was made from a bread crumb container
- one impend was made from a roll of air duct tape
Exactly How. cool. is. that?
I obtained the motivation for this task after educating the women just how to weaved on a bathroom roll impend in 2015. That procedure generated slim weaved arm bands as well as hair bands, as well as I obtained considering what we can make if we made use of a larger impend.
I did a dry run with utilizing a Pringles can tube, as well as ta-da … That’s just how I generated these handwear covers.
The Pringles can generated rather a slim tube/glove, which was great for my youngest criminal, so we made use of also larger looms for the older goons– a breadcrumb container as well as the roll of air duct tape.
These handwear covers weaved up actually rapidly, so your children can conveniently make a set in a hr or two– also much less if they’re making a brief set to simply cover their hands as well as wrists.
