Hi, I'm Colleen from the Lanyard Ladies, and today I'm going to show you how to make the Ladybug Rainbow Loom Bracelet. You'll need your loom, a hook, certain colors of bands, and a C-clip. We're going to start with the first piece of the pattern. It's the stem of the flower. The green goes right here, and then you go on to build the flower on either side of the loom.

We're going to put a pink one down the center and close off the flower with a yellow on the diagonal and a yellow on that side. Now we repeat the same pattern. Put your green. Then we're going to do yellow and yellow. We put a pink one, and we close the flower. One and two. Now we put one green, and now we're going to start the ladybug. So we go one red in that direction, and then we add a red in this direction, and a red goes forward. I'm going to put a red one here. Another red here. And then we'll go up with the red and up on this side with the red. And we close off the red like this on both sides of the loom, and now we're going to start with the black. I put one in that direction, one in this direction, and let's use a black here to connect the red with the center pin right here. Now we continue with the pattern of the flower on the other side of the ladybug. And the last thing we just put is one green one from this pin to this pin, and we are going to cap it right here on the end. Now we're ready to hook. So you'll turn the loom around, and we begin hooking. We're going to go behind the cap, and we're going to grab that green and bring it forward. Now we're going to take the yellow and bring the yellow off to the left. And we're going to go in the middle pin and grab the other yellow and bring that one up to the right. And then we grab the pink and hook that forward. Now we're going to go in the yellow, grab the yellow, bring it to the center, and do the same on this side. Bring up the yellow and put it on the center pin. Now we're going to reach in here, grab the green, and bring the green up forward. Now we're going to take the yellow, bring the yellow over to the left, grab the other yellow, bring this to the right, and the pink goes up forward. Now we're going to get this yellow. Bring the yellow into the center.

Push it down a little. Then get this yellow and bring that into the center. And now we have to loop this green forward. Grab the green, and bring that up a little bit forward. Now we have to hook the ladybug. The first thing we want to do is bring the black band forward. So we're going to grab that band and bring this up forward and push it down. And then we're going to grab the black one on the left and bring that up to the left, and then the black one on the right. And we bring this over to the right. And now on the left we're going to grab this red one and bring it to the center. Do the same on the right. We're going to grab this red one and bring it over to the center. Let's push them down.

Now we're going to bring the left red forward and the right red forward. I'm going to reach in here and grab this left band, and we're going to bring the left one over. I'm going to hold this up so I can see a little bit. So we're going to bring the left one over to the left. I'm going to get the right one and bring the right one over to the right, and then we're going to grab that center one. Where is it? Got too many. The center one down here, I'm going to bring that up to the center. And then we're going to take this left one and bring this to the center. And this right red one, we're going to bring that one to the center. So that completes the hooking of the ladybug. Now we're going to just continue hooking these two flowers the same way we hooked these. So the yellow's going to go over to the yellow, and the right yellow we bring over to the right side. And the pink we bring forward. And now we're going to grab this yellow and bring that forward. Push it down. And let's dig in here and get this yellow and bring this over to here, that center pin.

And then lastly, we're going to take the green one and bring the green up to here like this. And now we pull it off the loom. So we put our hook in, and we pull it up. OK. Now here's the start of our ladybug bracelet. I'm just going to make an extension. Turn the loom around, and I'm going to add six bands. Then I'm going to add my ladybug on the last two like that. And I'm going to turn the loom around, and I'm going to start hooking the extension. I'm going to just bring these bands forward. Now we can put our clip on the end and pull the band off the loom, and we'll hook it on this side. And here is your Ladybug Rainbow Loom Bracelet.
