Attach with a slip stitch and have the loop in the middle. Secure with a single crochet stitch on each loop after you flip the heirloom over. Keep making loops on each side until you have 21 loops that are secured with a single crochet stitch.
Free the work from loom. On one side, attach 7 loops with sl st, (ch 3, 1 sc in next loop) x 7, attach 7 loops with sl st.
On the other side, skip 4 loops and attach 13 loops with sl st. Attach the 4 loops on each side of the 13 loops together with a sl st. Fasten off, but don’t weave in the ends.
Instead of weaving in the end, you can leave them dangling down the sides. If you like you can use a smaller crochet hook and move the loose yarn bits to where you want them.

How to fold up to become a kangaroo.
Fold the last row back until row 6 follows and lay across to create the back of the kangaroo. Row 7 can be folded on top of row 4 to give the look of extra muscle. Row 4 becomes the back leg, and row5 becomes the tail. Row 1 is the ears, and row 2 is the face. Row 3 is the front legs.
Use sewing needle and stitch the pieces in place. Use thread and needle to fold the ear sideways in half to give more the appearance of an ear. Do the same with the face to bend the face to be more kangarooish :D
