I wore my favorite watch every single day. It was stylish, it was minimal, and furthermore: it was waterproof. I could forget to take it off before swimming and still be in the clear.
I had three choices: find a watch repairman who does strap replacements, buy a new watch, or use it as an excuse to try out something she found thanks to Pinterest.
Option C, I choose you.
I also quickly realized that yarn can stretch a bit, causing the strap to become uncomfortably loose. To fix this, I made the loop smaller by sewing closed the upper half.
But hey, live and learn (and make more watch straps).
