    What is the pattern? Where can I find it? What went wrong?

    This is a great example of how failure enhances learning – what I try to get math students to understand all the time.

    Thanks for the photo – and I look forward to more!

    One way to express your anger and disappointment to the blooper is to toss at a spinning fan as hard as you can-keep posting Rainbow fails, peoples!

    I did that and I felt all better after I failed on making a new charm and an hour after that I made a Grizzly bear charm!!!!!

    This website is amazing I’ve made a bajillion (correct mathematical term 😉 ) bracelets and charms and they all are a big hit with my friends and family! I just made a snake charm and it’s ADORABLE!!! Check it out! Keep posting new designs you guys rock!! 🙂

    Once. But that is because I only made it as an expert. I have had many rainbow loom fails, though. Lots of them looking just like yours. Mostly trying to make up new bracelets and charms. Who else here is totally addicted to sailor’s pinstripes? They look so hard, but once you get the hang of it, it is easy. The one that I cannot make is the warrior. Any hints?

    Keep trying loom love, I tried to make a panda charm, and it didn’t really work out. I also wanted to make a popcorn bracelet for the 1st time and guess what! It failed… but the 2nd time I didn’t give up and I got a great result! KEEP TRYING!

    I was so discouraged when i started looming

    Loom tip #1 Don’t start out with hard bracelets try fishtail or single

    I made a Unicorn charm once. I thought everything was perfect but somewhere along the way I missed a band and my Unicorn ended up with only one eye. Oops.

      I did the same with my owl charm but i kinda looks like its winking at me so all good.

      • Lauren says:

        I crocheted a bear for my cousin once and I kept getting frustrated that I couldn’t do the eyes. It ended up looking like it was winking and it was actually quite cute.

    I got the Zippy Chain on my first try, but I haven’t mastered the Carnation bracelet yet. The first time I tried it, the center bands came off and I was left with a Honeycomb bracelet!

  13. LoomyLeopard says:

    Keep on trying! I got mine right the first time though. Btw your site is AWESOME! ????

  14. Bena Cunningham says:

    I fail on everything but this is the ONLY one I can do . But you can make everything haha

  15. Loomlover says:

    Hi, loomexpertluv, I needed to try twice in making the warrior, you just need to keep going!
    BTW,loomlove I haven’t tried this yet but it would probably do the same thing! 🙁

  16. LoomLover says:

    Don’t worry! You know most of them.By the way,thanks for the image.
    When I got mine I could not even master the Single Chain bracelet.
    So, relax and keep trying.Am looking forward to seeing your progress!

    I watched your ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

    Cool!!! The people who did it, their your family? Cute. 🙂 Really cute. 🙂

    So you two sisters (i think) were the ones who created LoomLove?

    I love you guys!!! You are so cute and creative! Keep it up!

    I am on my second attempt… the first time the bracelet itself was wearable but some of the zippy chain was not coming over like it was supposed to.

    I don’t usually make award winning bands, I get stuck usually. I think that’s a good idea posting ur mistakes. Plz do more!
