Last night I used my loom to create a bracelet in a chevron pattern. I was really excited about the way it was turning out until I got ready to attach the cord ends. Then, I realized I had made a mistake.
To the untrained eye, it probably looks fine. But, I made the bracelet wider than the cord ends. I was so disappointed--I worked hard on that bracelet! In the end, I wound up gluing the ends that extend beyond the cord ends, hoping it would at least keep the thread from unraveling.
It's not absolutely horrible, but it's definitely not something I would sell. I may go ahead and attach a lobster clasp, and wear it myself to see what happens.
I thought I was so careful with my measurements, but... Next time I will definitely measure again to be on the safe side!
