Do you have kids caught up in the looming craze? Put them to work! One woman, Helen Wright, from Wales came up with the idea to make a dress after watching her 12 year old daughter make a few creations.
“My friend Katherine physically made it because she’s out of work and gets bored,” Wright told the North Wales Daily Post of the project. “I said why don’t we make a dress from loom bands and Katherine said she’d be happy do do it because she’s too ill to work. She did an hour here or there in between her house work to keep her busy.”
40 hours and 20, 000 loom bands later (wow that’s a lot in 40 hours!!) they posted the dress for sale on eBay for about $85. A bidding war started and it ended up selling for $291,000!!!
Ok kids, start looming!
