The History of the Watchscarf...
a new watchband. My inexpensive watch came with a wildly uncomfortable plastic strap. I hated it. However, I am
just not good at changing watchbands. Those darned little pins are so small! Even when I succeed at getting them
off, I can almost never get them back on. And half the time, I wind up shooting them across the room, where they
disappear to never again be seen.
So, I began a search for a one-piece watchband.
I found a few, but they were all "sports" style bands with velcro fastenings, and just not very attractive.
There was nothing that I could find which would allow my watch to look good when I wanted to wear it with business
clothes or a nice outfit for an evening out.
I felt frustrated, then I had an inspiration; what I needed was something that could be changed easily, which would
look good with different color outfits, and that would be comfortable. I needed a scarf for my watch! I raided
my scarf drawer and began cutting up an old scarf. It was far from perfect, but it worked.
I sat down with a seamstress friend and together we designed a WatchScarf that fit what I wanted to wear myself.
I chose fabric that got the other people in the fabric store to stop and buy some for themselves; then we made
some samples. After wearing them around for a few weeks, I tinkered with the design to get the look and feel I
wanted, and now I can present to you the finished product!
