i've always wanted a leather cuff watch. but they're uber expensive and if i do find one they're too big cuz i have really small wrists.
so, i made one. here's how:
no sew snaps
1: cut off the existing bands off of a watch. this works for those that are not metal (duh)
2: buy some cheap pleather, your choice in color (i chose black) at walmart or hobby lobby or where ever.
3: measure around your wrist
4: cut the leather in a strip that is 2" wide (or smaller or larger if you want) and 1" longer than your wrist measurement.
5: cut two strips 1 1/2 - 2" long and thin enough to fit around where you cut off the bands of the watch.
6: fit those in there, fold wrong sides together and put one side of the snap on each strip.
7: position the watchin the center of the big band you made earlier and attach the other two snaps.
ta-da! it's also made to me interchangeable with other bands you make out of different colors of pleather. you can also decorate with the bedazzler. i wish i had pics to show you all. enjoy!
