Large Kaleidoscope Bracelet Tutorial

Things have been getting crazy around here. It seems like the month of December just sucks away time without a person noticing. Shopping, visiting family,concerts, making cookies, snow that needs shoveling and adding all that on top of all the regular activities of boy scouts, basketball, cub scouts, and all the requirements of being a stay at home mom...I don't have much time to do activities for myself, besides take a nap that is.

I need to finish editing my Herringbone bracelet tutorial, but luckily all the shooting is done. I have had several requests for other tutorials and will be working on them as much as I can, as well as putting together ones for my new bracelet ideas. I will be working hard to get these done as soon as possible, it just may take awhile. Thank you for sticking with me! These are the requested tutorials I have been asked to make:

  • show how to extend the Stained Glass bracelet beyond the one loom length
  • tutorial using two looms to make the Stained Glass bracelet
  • more designs using one loom
  • instructions for bracelet from Nov 14 post

Any other requests?

I did manage to finish up the editing for my latest tutorial, the Large Kaleidoscope bracelet. It is made on 7 pin bars, but you could probably make it on 4 pin bars using the same technique as my one loom Kaleidoscope bracelet.

As always, Enjoy! If you have any questions, please let me know.


  1. I love it! So pretty and elegant!

  2. You 're welcome! This bracelet is so creative! You are a rainbow loom genius in my book.

  3. Thank you, Ellen, for coming up with such awesome patterns. I work at an elementary school and the Rainbow Loom is extremely popular. I have been able to make your WAVE, STAIN GLASS (had to borrow 2 looms from a co worker) and KALEIDOSCOPE and the kids LOVE the patterns. Just saw your tutorial on the Checker Board. I am going to give that a try this week. It again is an awesome pattern!

    1. Thank you!! I'm glad to hear that 1. you're a teacher (thank you!), 2. that you (and your students) like my designs. I felt a little silly when I started to do the rainbow loom, but it really is a lot of fun and a great way to be creative. I just posted a tutorial on how to make the Stained Glass bracelet on one loom and of course, right after I did that, I had an aha! moment on how to do extensions for the bracelet on 1 or 2 looms, so that tutorial will come soon too! Thank you for taking the time to let me know what you thought, it means a lot!
