1. Balloon Animals 0 PROMO: Hi there, hubs age login. I worked for over 20 years as a children's entertainer, doing magic tricks, juggling and giant bubbles for kids and making balloon animals. So I thought I'd start a simple course for beginners on how to make balloon animals. So let's begin. 2. Balloon Animals 1 INTRODUCTION: Welcome to the class. So to do simple designs for kids, we're gonna do, we're gonna need a few things. The first thing you'll need is only a balloon pump. I tend to tie a string to my balloon pump using a couple of hair ties that people would use a hair tie rabbit a few times and then tie a knot around it, then do the same thing to the other end. This is again a hair tie. This blue piece here is a hair tie and this creates a chord for your balloon pump, makes it easier. We're going to be making a lot of balloons like I do in the work that I do. But otherwise you can, but you do need a balloon pump. Just start. You'll need a balloon pump and you'll need 260 balloons. These are qualitative hex, 260 balloons on. These are the long stretch, the balloons that you would use. And 260 is the size of the balloon. So let me show you first, first few things that you need to know. And the first thing you need to know is if you stretch the balloon, if you're going to blow it up by the mouth, okay, you need to stretch the balloon first. That's the first thing that you need to know. Now next is when you blow up a balloon by mouth, there's some talcum powder on the inside. And so when the balloon, if you inflate and deflate it, you'll see a little puff of smoke and that's basically the talcum powder from the inside. So that's why using a pump is advised because you don't want to really be inhaling that little talcum powder inside the balloon if you're making a bunch of balloons. But here's how it works. If you're making, just want to learn how to blow up a balloon without a pump. So what you'll need to do is I'm going to come close to the camera. Okay? So what we need to do is situation like this. So you want to have a stream of air. There's going to be able to come through the middle. Now what you don't want to do is this. You don't want to cover it up entirely because you need some space for the air to come through. But you're going to have a situation like this one. You don't want them at the same level, okay? You want them at different levels, one a little bit lower than the other, okay? And what you're gonna do is you're going to pull, see that diagonal poll and below at the exact same time. So that looks like this. So there you go. So that's the first thing you wanna do is stretch the balloon. You'll give it a stretch. And then you want to take the editable pole and blow at the same time. And it's a timing thing. It's one of those things where you've gotta get the timing just right to pull and blow at the same time. Now, the first move that you need to know in pretty much all the balloons or you'll be making is very simple. Now, one thing that's important before I get to that actually is whatever I make a balloon, a lot of people will always go without making it too big. Or there's two big secrets. Number one, you always leave a little bit of the balloon uninflated. So that means even if you go to the almost the end, always leave a little bit uninflated so that there's room for the air to go somewhere. And number two is you do something like this called burping the balloon, which is to the outlet out a little of air after you've created the block. Okay, so to tie the balloon, you typically create an overhand knot. Turn it this way, okay. And pull the knot through my fat. Okay, so that's how you create the overhand knot. Now the very simple move that balloon twisting is going to be based off of. So this is the first move that you really need to know is this, is you need to fold. Fold is this is the first move. Squeeze is the seconds you want to squeeze section off. Alright, so squeeze a section like that, right? And then twist. Okay, so that's the basic head of a dog. Okay, and the feet of the dog, as well as the tail are very, very similar design. But we're going to do the dog as a very first design that I'm going to teach you. So that's the 31st simple design that you'll learn. Let's begin. 3. Balloon Animals 2 THE DOG: Welcome back. So for the rest of the course, I'll be using my trusty pump over here. Okay, so the first thing we wanna do is you want to afford the dog in every balloon design, I'll be pretty much telling you blow the balloon up most of the way, half of the way or three-quarters of the way. Most designs basically are that way. So you want to leave a couple of inches or anywhere from like like basically four inches at the end would be three quarters of the way or like that. So this is we're going to leave basically about a hands worth at the end, okay, on inflated. So you want to start like this. And I leave about a hands worth at the end, uninflated. And this is to make the dog okay. So now I burped it a little bit to release the air so that we have some room for to go. And now we're going to take it over. Fold to want to fold it about that much. Squeeze. Actually going to make it a little less. Squeeze and twist to this end part here, give it a try. Okay, so there is, you've got the head of the dog. Now you're gonna do the same thing only here. So you have, this is the head of the dog. Okay? And this is the part that you want to squeeze this part in the center here. So you've got to squeeze, squeeze this bottom part, squeeze and twist. Ok, and now you've got the head of your dog and the feet of your dog. Now, you're going to take the rest of the body, bring this part here to about there. Squeeze and twist. Okay? And what you're going to be left with is this little bit of air in the tail. Now it's very important. This is, this is, this part here is what a lot of kids like, okay. So you want to take this portion here of the tail and squeeze it. And what you do is with using the back edge, this edge of your hand. Okay? So this edge here of your hand, the back edge of your hand, you're going to squeeze the air backwards. So that goes all the way to the top. And that gives you a little Bali at the top of the dog. So there you go. So that's your basic dog design. I'll do that one for you again. So here we go. Let's take another balloon. Okay. So I'll use the yellow one this time. Okay. So you're going to blow it up, leaving about 34 inches at the end, okay? Leaving about that much at the end. For the balloon. Let out some of the air. Give it a little twist and tie it. So now you want to bend over folded part of the balloon. Squeeze. Hold about that much. Squeeze and twist. Okay, turn it over this way. I take from here about the midpoint of the balloon. Okay, So this is the head is here. Tick from the midpoint of the balloon to the neck. Squeeze the bottom, squeeze the bottom part of that. And that gives you the front legs. So then you take this part here to this part, their match this part there. Okay, go again, right to about the center, just about the center. Give it a little bit of a twist. Okay? And then lastly, to get that little Bali, Use the back of your hand to move the air up to the top. And there you go. And there you have your basic Poodle Dog. In the next one we'll do another balloon animal. 4. Balloon Animals 3 THE RABBIT: Now the next balloon design that I'm going to teach you how to make is the rabbits. So I'll show you how the rabbit works. It's basically the dog only you're going to make the back legs a little bigger so that there's room and you're going to inflate the balloon a little more. So leave about two inches at the end of the balloon to inches or so at the end of the balloon. Inflated up until about that point for this balloon. So you got to leave out that much left. Okay. And we hurt the balloon to let out some of the air overhand NOX. Okay, and we're going to start off exactly the same as the dog. So here's the situation here. I'm at this end of the balloon. Okay, we're going to fold. Squeeze. And actually for the, for the rabbit, you want to make the ears a little longer. So let's make that a little longer actually than the dog. So folds, squeeze and there you go. So that becomes the ears of the rabbits in the front. You wanna do pretty much the same as you would for a dog. Is do this. I'm going to bring it to that section there. Alright, squeeze and twist. And then this is where the design differs. So you're in the same place, but instead of doing this and then folding here, okay, you're gonna do the same thing. You're still going to fold this over. But instead of folding in the center and leaving this space here, this base here, for the tail, you're going to fold much higher up. So fold all the way to there, okay. So that you have a situation like this. So it's basically like an uneven dog with very big back legs and then the big back legs in there. Okay, is where the front legs go into the back legs. And that creates your basic design of your rabbit. So there you go. So that's the rabbit design. Okay? And actually when we're doing that, let's do that a little bit smaller. Make it a little easier to stay. Here you go. There you go. So there's your basic rabbit design. So that's the rabbit designs you've ever kid asks you for a blue rabbit, you know how to do it. Now, there you go. 5. Balloon Animals 4 THE CAT: So the next design you'll learn how to do is the cat. Okay? So this is your basic dog design, okay? And this is your basic cat design. It's got the two ears here and here. So that's the ears, that's the front legs. That's the back legs like that. Okay, so that's the basic cat design that you'll find in a lot of books on. It's, a lot of people will complain and say, it's a guided does. That is the official design for the cat. And I haven't found too many simple designs that are easy to do and look like a cat, but that's the one, but I'll show you how to make it now it's pretty simple. So if you followed me so far, making the dog, making the rabbit, then this will be easy for you to make the cat. So what you wanna do, I'll use a blue balloon this time. Okay, You're going to cool it off most of the way this time. Okay. And you want to leave maybe three inches at the end there. Okay. Verbit. Tired. Okay, and now this is how it's going to work. You're going to do a short one. I actually like that about that size. Okay. And you're gonna do squeeze and twist. And that is now no longer the head. We're going to be one of the ears. Now. Face it this way. Okay? And you're gonna do the same thing. Bend it over like this. And you want to make a second. So hold on. Mended over like this and you make a second ear. So you have a situation like this now. Okay, so you have two ears of your cat, okay? Now you want to take it and you're going to do again two feet. So it's going to be vent over this way. Okay. Until over this way and twist. And then now you have a situation like this where you have the snout and leg number one, this is the two ears. This now and the first leg. So now the second leg is going to come over here and they give it a twist. Ok. And now you have a situation like this. We have put a foot, snout, an ER and IR. Again, you're going to do the same thing in the back. Now. Create, turn this way. Squeeze, twist, grab this part here, please. And over, squeeze and twist. And then you're going to end up with the tail back here. And the tail, which you can do to bend the tail and give it a little bit of a squeeze together as you bend it. And that gives us some curvature to the tail. Okay, So this is what you end up with, the basic cat design. So I'll do that one for you again. And I know I go a little bit fast sometimes, but that's what I'll do it for you again. Okay, here we go. So we'll use a black balloon this time. Hopefully you can see this a little better. Okay, now, you want to do, I've inflated it a lot less this time just to show what variations you can get if you've basically got a smaller cap. So you're going to fold it over and once squeeze, hold it over one's squeeze and twist. That's ER number one, mended over again. Okay. Squeeze and twist. That's ER number two. Okay. Hopefully can see that a little better. Then. We want to bend it here actually on the side. So the phases here, right? And abundant on the side, squeeze and twist. Okay, so there's the face mended here. Squeeze and twist. And then in the back, do the same thing. You're going to bend it in the back, squeeze and twist. So that's 11 more time. Squeeze in the back and twist. And you end up with the little bitty tail because I didn't fill it up so much. And then you can bend that tail over. Rubber the two pieces together. And this is your basic cat design. So there you go. So now you know how to do the dog, you know how to do the dog, the rabbit, and the cat. So move on to the next design in the next, in the next lesson. 6. Balloon Animals 5 EASY SWORD: So now I'm going to show you how to do the sort. Now the sword gets much easier, okay? So basically the cat and the teddy bear at the end are the most complicated things we want to show you in this beginner's course. But here we go. So the sword, well, put the bone to the pop. This one. I'm going to pump it up almost all the way with the exception of maybe a quarter of an inch or half an inch like that. So you just leave a half-inch at the end of the balloon like that uninflated for the sword. Okay. Give it a burp or, but again, maybe overhand knot. And this is super, super, super, super simple. Okay? What you wanna do is make it too about that length there. Okay? Then you want to squeeze this part here. Just leave a little bit there, just a little bit there. Okay, squeeze, squeeze and twist. And then you're going to take this end. So now you're in a situation like this. We have this big loop here that has a hole in it. You take this and put it right through there. And that creates the sword, right? This is the handle of the sword. This is where the kids hold the sword. And there you go. This is the sword that kids have to play with. This is a simple sort. I'll show you how to make a more complicated sort in the next lesson, but this is the simple sort. So let's do that for you again. I'll do that again. So here we go. We want to flow. Sorry. Here we go. We're gonna do that for you. Again. Blow the sword up all the way this time. Almost all the way. Purpose, time. We've got about that much there and see about that much there. Okay? So this is what we have, this situation we have. So on this end where the knot is, Okay, I want to bend it to about that level there. Okay, about Hat hands worth. Give it a twist. And you make one simple loop like that. Okay, That's the situation you have there. And then you're going to take this end of the balloon, pull it through the loop. Okay? And there you have your basic sword design, and this is where the handle is there. Okay? So I think it also just go like this with your fingers to straighten out the design if that's to make it a little straighter. So there you go. So that's your basic design. 7. Balloon Animals 6 FANCY SWORD: In this lesson, I'll show you how to make the fantasy sword. So the fancy sort is usually what I'll do for the birthday child. If it's a child was a boy or a girl, sometimes she wants a pink sword. So here's the situation. Okay, you're going to blow up the balloon again all the way. And just leave a little bit of a dimple at the end. Okay, so I want to leave a little bit of a temple there and then burp the balloon and give it a little bit of a twist and tie the not very long. Okay, now for this one, what you're going to basically be doing is making Three Dog Head's situations around. You'll see what I mean in a second. So you want to take it to about there, okay. Too about that section there, that squeeze and twist. And then we're gonna do that again. Take this section here, bring it down, squeeze and twist. And 1 third time. She gets from this section here too, like they're bringing it down to there like that, squeeze and twist. And then you want to have and what you have is a situation that looks like this. Okay? And then the kid would hold from there, and that's your fantasy sword. Now for the fancy sword, the thing is, is that it does tend to move around as much and not be as stable, but it's something that's good for a picture if the kid wants to make it a picture for it. And the other thing too, this is a basic design. Sometimes you get a kid who gets the fancy sort and they want a shield like. So here's how you do the shield. Okay, so you want to do the same thing? Blow it up almost all the way. And really even laid a little bit there. Okay? And now with this one, what we're gonna do is you're gonna make a bubble. So this is the first time you get to make a bubble. So bubbles like this, instead of folding, then squeeze. What you're gonna do is just squeeze to take apart here, right, from this part back. Okay? Squeeze and twist. Okay? Now you're in a situation like this. So you want to take this part here, bring it to about the center there. So right there. Okay. And give it a level of twist again. Okay? And you'll be in a situation like this with one big loop. Fill out the air there, okay, so I just push the air into that part. And then you want to bring this top part. You've got the loop here from this top part there. Okay? And you put a, put this like this over here. We've got push it and around. Okay? So what you're going to end up with is a situation like this, okay? And this is the basic shell of a hat. Okay, So you can build things and I'll do a whole other course on balloon hats. And you can build amazing balloon half. That's kinda my specialty of doing all kinds of interesting things with hats. But this can also be a cool shield for a kid that wants a balloon shield. So you have your balloon sword and your balloon shield. So there you go. 8. Balloon Animals 7 EASY FLOWER: Hi there. So in this section you're going to learn how to make a simple balloon flower. Okay? So for this one you're going to need two balloons. So you'll need, so in this lesson you're going to learn. So in this lesson you're going to learn how to make a simple balloon flower. Now this is the balloon flower that I tend to do with events most often. So you're going to need two balloons you'll need, in this case, when using a green one for the stem. And then I'm going to use a red heart balloon. This is a heart-shaped loan for the flower itself. Okay? So what you're gonna do is first blow up the green balloon and you blow it up pretty much all of the way. You just leave a little dimple of air at the top. Okay? So you leave that little dimple of air at the top and then perfect for it. But again, give it a Thai. Okay. Puts that one under my arm, which gives me room to blow up the heart balloon. So there we have our heart-shaped bloom. Okay, a little bit of air out about 12, given an overhand knot. Okay, so now it's tied. So now we're going to tie the two overhand knot together. What I tend to do is just like this and tying them that way. Okay. So that you have one balloon tied to the other, like that. And this is the other end of this balloon. So now all you have to do is basically make the leaves of this bloom. So you're going to make like that To that point there. So, alright, twist. Again. Bring it over to their twist. One more time. Bring it over to their situations. The third petal is over here, okay? And you want to twist. Now. You have a very simple but easy to do, easy to do, but very, very cute balloon flower. Now, these look really great with a pink stem. They also look really great with different color hearts as well. So sometimes I do it with a blue stem as well. I got a crystal blue stem, like a royal blue. But there you go. So this is, this is the basic Balloon Flower design. In the next lesson, I'll show you how to do the fancy balloon flower. 9. Balloon Animals 8 FANCY FLOWER: Hey, so I'm going to show you how to make a fancy flower here. Then you're going to need two balloons for this. You're going to need to 26. This is a green one for the stem, and this is a red one that's going to be the flower. Now I find for the top one is going to be the top, that's gonna be the flour is really good to give it a stretch so that it gets really good. Okay. So you wanted to leave about three inches or so at the top. You'll see why in a second. Okay. So this is how much I have left at the top, three inches there. And then I give it a little burp and tie it. Okay. What you're going to be doing is you're going to be doing a similar situation like this where you're going to take the NOT and give it a twist. Okay? And then pull the knot. You're not okay, and pull it through to the other side of your twist and that's so that it doesn't come out. Okay? Then you're going to do the same thing again, try to judge the size. So I'm taking this section here. Here's your situation with your not take that section there and you're going to make another one about that same size. And you're gonna do it again. Make another petal about that same size. One more time. Make another petal about that same size. And one last time, push. This is these two pieces together, make a little panel. And what you're going to end up with is a situation like this where there's all these kind of petals going around. Your flower, won't make sense until you see the second part of the flower. So let me make their stem. Okay, So what you wanna do, blow this up almost all the way, leaving a little dimple at the top. And urban as well. So this way the air has some place to go. Now what you're gonna do is you're gonna make a little balls. So you're going to pinch off a little piece and squeeze it. Okay. And remain holding it because if you let it go, it's going to do that. So squeeze and twist. Okay? Now you're going to work this little Bali into this situation here. So let's work that into there. I'm wrapping that around there. Okay. And so these are going to go sideways. You'll see in a minute, I mean, to create the petals of your flower. So that's what it looks like. It's like that. So what I mean is these loops here go on the sides. Let's go sideways and the front creates your petals. Ok? Now this particular design. And then what you wanna do is you want to make another little twist here. And another one there. And there you go. And that's your basic fancy flower. I don't do too often, do these too often. What I tend to do is make these only again for the birthday child. So the birthday child is a girl and you make are one of these, something like that. Okay, so, but this is the basic design, works like that. Now the number of petals that you'll get when you do this is going to vary. This is one of the few designs that's not going to be the same every time, depending on how much air you put on each individual petal. Sometimes you'll get as little as three petals, and sometimes you'll get as many as eight, okay? On average, most people tend to get four or five petals out of their flower top. But something that you're going to have to practice because it takes a while before he can just get a kind of an even four or five petals. But it's something that works. And like I said, some people like this design and let me get the other one. But this design, the simple flower, is really much more useful if you're doing balloons for a lot of children. So in my case, when I worked as a children's entertainer, what I'm doing wounds for a lot of kids. This simple design is much more practical for me. So there you go. In the next lesson, we'll learn another, another, another balloon design. 10. Balloon Animals 9 DOUBLE HEART: So in this lesson I'm going to show you how to make a great design for Valentine's Day. This is the double heart. So it looks like this. Okay, so for this you're going to need two balloons. You'll need your red 260 balloon, long balloon, and a red heart balloon. Okay? And this particular instance you do need a heart balloon with, with the flower, you can use just a regular red balloon. But with this one you will need a red heartbroken. You want to inflate your red balloon. It's almost all the way. Again. Leave a level of temple at the end. And burp descent, okay? Tie with or not. Okay, now, what you wanna do is make a little Bali at this end. Okay? Squeeze and tie. Can twist, I should say, squeeze and twist. And then you're going to work that around with the knot at the bottom to create just a loop like that. Okay. Now, take your heart balloon, blow it up. Okay, heart balloon blown up. Give it a knot. Here's how this works. You want to take the center, okay, of your heart, the center up here of your twisted balloon that's in a circle. And you're going to bring the two pieces down like this into a heart shake. Okay. Squeeze them together. Throw them together. Sorry for the sound. Okay. And push them together. And what happens typically is it stays in somewhat of a heart shape. Okay? And then you want to place your little heart balloon in the center. And there you go. For Valentine's Day, you've got the double heart. So that's your double heart design. Okay, That's a great one for Valentine's Day. 11. Balloon Animals 10 PINCH TWIST: So the final design that I'll teach you is I'll teach you how to do the teddy bear. Now, the teddy bear uses a special twist. There's a special twist and you have not learned yet. And for that design you need that special twist. So let me show you just how to do this special twist first. Then when you do the teddy bear, it'll be a little bit more understandable. So here we go like this. So I'm going to blow up a balloon almost all the way and leave just a little bit that much left broke the end. Okay, here we go. Now, what we're gonna do is we're going to squeeze and bring a long section here, about two inches. Now grab that section with your hand so to keep it from unraveling. Okay, and you're going to make another one, but smaller this time. So the second one is going to be that small like that. So what you have is a situation like this long, long, short in the middle. And what happens is, this is the move. You're going to bring the two pieces together like this. And then this little bubble in the middle, grab either end of that bubble and you're going to twist it on itself in-between these two pieces. This is called a pinch twist. Okay? So you grab it and pinch it on itself. But what you're going to end up with, is this something that looks like a kidney bean type of shape? And it's going to help you to do a right angle. And that's what's needed to do the teddy bear. Okay, so we're going to do the teddy bear in the next lesson. Coming on up. 12. Balloon Animals 11 TEDDY BEAR: So in this next and final lesson, we'll show you how to make the teddy bear. Okay, so the teddy bear, this ear here, and this ear here are your pinch twist and you put it against me so I can see it a little better. So this ear here and this ear here, these two ears, is where you get you the pinch twist. And this is going to use a little bit of that twisting method. So you'll see what I mean in a minute. Okay, so here's what I'm gonna do. So I'm going to take a long 260 balloon. First thing you wanna do when making a teddy bear phrase, always give it a few stretches before you inflate the balloon. The reason is that it'll give you more pliability in the balloon to make it more flexible for the twist that you need to do. So twisted a few chemical structure few times, okay? Then you're going to inflate it about two-thirds of the way. So we'll leave that much at the end. And then we're gonna burp it. Okay? Now, here's what we're gonna do. The first thing you need to do is you're going to pinch and you're going to make a long piece like that. Okay? Then hold this piece. I want to make a second long one, about the same length, about the same length. So twists, Squeeze, and then have a situation like that. Now this here is going to be the ear. So you're gonna make a short one there. So that's going to be a short one. This one here is going to be a long one again, about the same length as this one. So these two should be about the same length. Okay? Then this one here is going to make the ear again. So you're going to give another short twist and then one final one, the same size as this, okay? So these two will match. Okay, so what you're going to be left with is a situation like this, okay? You have long, long, short, long, short, long. Okay. Now these two here at the bottom, these two pieces here, you're going to join these together. Now, this section here, the front is going to come through and it's going to become the snout of the teddy bear. But before we can do that, we need to get your pinch twist these two pieces here. It's piece here. And here, we're going to get those into a pinch twist. So we're gonna take these two pieces here. Sorry. Take these two pieces here, hold them tight and pinch, twist, twisting it onto itself like that. Okay. And you're going to take these two pieces here, this one and this 112, squeeze them together. This bubble in the middle, pinch, twist. Okay? So now you're in a situation like that, okay? Now you want to take this snout that's in the back. Okay. Pull it through to the front of the face. And that is going to give you the face of your teddy bear. Now, you're in a situation like this. You should have about this much left at the bottom. And it's important to have some room at the bottom so that when you make the arms, there's a place for that air to go. Okay, so you're gonna make an arm here and arm here, and arm here and an arm here. So we're going to bend over and the squeeze folded and squeeze. Hold it and squeeze. So you end up like that. Okay. And then at the bottom, does the same thing, fold it in, squeeze, pull it, and squeeze. After that not enough body. He's give it a little bit more body. And my body, I mean this section here, squeeze. And then what I have here is just this last piece here needs to be twisted. And okay. So there you go. So there is your teddy bear. Now, the teddy bear will have a little tiny tail in the back like that. Okay. So that is your teddy bear and you can even take your teddy bear, put it inside a heart. Okay, so you can tie it inside of heart. So that's a more advanced design that you can do, but it's still relatively simple. Okay, so I'll run through the teddy bear one more time because I know that one gave me some trouble with the first time I tried to do the teddy bear. So again, when you do the teddy bear, always stretch your balloon. Stretch your balloon before you make it because you're going to need that extra stretching, Sondheim. And then you're going to blow it up to about two-thirds of the way, leaving about three inches or so at the end. Okay. And then you're back in the situation here. When a purpose, that purpose again, this one actually I'm going to go up one more time. Tie it with an overhand knot. Okay, so now again, you want to make long, long, short, long, short, long, long, long, short, long, short, long. That's the what you're gonna do. Okay, so you're gonna do first twist. Okay? First twist here. Okay, second twist is going to be the same length or so. So this, and this piece, these two pieces should be similar in length. Okay? And make a short one here. Okay? Such a short one will lost one of my long ones. Okay. And they want to make a long one there. A short one there, and a long one here. Okay? And we bring these two pieces together so that you end up with something like this, okay? And then you'll want to pinch, twist this. So bring these two pieces, this and this. These two bubbles are going to come together. Pinch, twist. And then these two bubbles, this one and this one, these two on 212, these two together from that small bubble pinch twist. Okay? And then you have a situation like this. Bring your snouts from the back to the front, pull it through the hole. Okay. Now in this one I have a little less room, the bottom, like this. Twist there. To twist and make the arms here on the side. One twist, one twist. These are the two twist and I'm referencing. Okay, and then do the same thing at the bottom here herself to twice. What I like to do is make a little volley back at the bottom and add it to that. Was a little tight. There you go. And again, that is your teddy bear. So there you go.
