It's summer, which means it's time for summer fun things like camping, fishing, hiking, day camps, crafts and lanyard making!
My Lanyard Maker is a loom for lanyard making. It makes it very easy to knot flat plastic or round plastic lacing without that "I don't have enough hands" frustration. In my photo above, I have a basic box weave lanyard key ring, and the enclosed instructions cover two very basic weaves including the box weave.
The loom has 4 sides with 8 slots per side to arrange your lacing or cord in. Each of the slots is labeled with an embossed letter/number designation for following patterns. Just past one side is a clip so you can use it in a different layout for some designs. For weaves like the box weave, instead of the clip you would use the center piece which holds the key ring or small carabiner. The weave works up in the middle of the loom and you can drop out the center piece to continue weaving as it gets longer.
This also has a drawer to hold supplies, and it comes with some split ring key rings, plastic key rings, pony beads to decorate, and both round and flat lacing to get started. Like all of the line of products from this company, it's great crafting fun that is well thought out.
The products from the My Friendship line of products are well made, and well thought out, but hands down my favorite thing about the company is their interaction online. The webpage has several downloadable PDFs that are free which give instructions for many more projects to make with their makers, they post on their Facebook page- Choose Friendship, daily with quotes, happy thoughts and inspiration.
