Hi.  I was inspired by all of the super wristbands on this site and tried to make my own out of felt, beads, fabric scraps.  The duckling were "borrowed" from a children's book by Coby Hol.  Some of the stitching is coming out at the top but it has held up through several handwashings and daily use by an 8 year old.

Wow - I love it!
How did you make it? Are the ducks felt and embroidery?
I'm inspired now - I've had someone begging me to make them a wristband for ages!
Any hints?

Yes, their little bodies are white felt appliqued to a piece of blue felt, then I just used some embroidery floss for the details.  I thought the cotton backing would be less irritating against the skin, plus I really liked the tiny flowers on the fabric.
  For the backing I cut two matching rectangles and sewed them up, right sides together on three sides, turned it right side out and hand stitched the last edge.  Next time I think I would use just one piece of fabric and have the long seam in the center back of the band instead of a seam on either side.  Hope that makes sense.  Thanks for asking, and for the nice feedback!
