My watchband served me well. But time eventually catches up with even the best watchband.
After 3 years, it was frayed beyond repair, but the clasp still worked well.
So, time for a replacement.
The Stash includes beautiful ribbons, including a 11″ piece of the jacquard shown to the left.
To add strength and protect the back of the jacquard ribbon, black grosgrain ribbon was sewn to the back.
To increase comfort, narrow elastic (also from The Stash), was threaded between the two ribbons.
Ends were turned under.
The original band clasp was salvaged (and cleaned) for reuse.
The strap was looped through the clasp and stitched down. The other end folded under a second time and stitched down.
And in less than 20 minutes – a new Stash Couture watchband!
