How creative with loom bands are you? 

In July, two Welsh ladies designed and made a dress entirely out of more than 20,000 different coloured loom bands.

When the pair originally posted the unique frock on eBay, the auction reached a final bid of $340,000. However the winning bid fell through and the buyer did not pay up.

They reposted the auction recently but the dress only sold for $440, a mere fraction of the original winning bid.

However, the two designers will donate all the money raised to a cancer charity and are happy with the news that the money raised from the sale will cover the cost of a cancer nurse for nine hours.

Would you wear clothes made out of loom bands?

  1. if the loom bands are left too long not in an air tight bag or container they will dry up and break and spill everywhere

  2. it will be a waste is the loom brakes and it will be cold to wear in winter and someone should make pjs out of loom ?

  3. Awesome Wish i could have one but it would be really expensive. They should have got more than $440. Imagine all the time and effort.
