    What a clever idea!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Wow. I have had a hard time getting new bands to fit, too. So like your idea. Thanks.

    I love your watch band - I have several watches whose bands are worn or too small. This has really given me ideas! Thanks!!

    I have also made some when a leather strap wore out. Had some fabric I really like so was happy to see it all day.
    Made a few different ones so wear depending on the color I'm wearing. Actually got the idea because of a fabric
    that I can no longer buy and like it so much still haven't cut the big piece. Used velcro too for closure so fits any size wrist. Enjoy !

    Wolph,
    Your watch band reminds me of the leather watch bands that were popular in the 70s. I like yours better.
