Since I need a big watch for school, (so the pupils don't notice me checking the time to make sure I'm still on track Wink ) I started using this old watch I had. The black watch strap it had always made me itch and I took it off as soon as lessons ended. I decided I need more comfort and made a new one from bias tape I picked up for no special purpose other than its prettiness! Now I don't even notice I still wear it!
I did put in some sturdier fabric to help it keep its shape better.

That's a great idea! I never would have thought to do that.

 Smiley  Very cool idea. : )    I know some people find the perfect watch and don't want to part with it.  What a way to keep the watch and perk it up.  : )
