Earlier this month, Tomato invited me to attend their Swap Watch and Swap DIY event. Mansy and I attended the event together. They introduced us to their line of swap watches. We got to design our own watch faces, make loom band straps and, of course, do a little shopping.
We were all given a few additional straps to take home with us. Since I already had regular and loom band straps, I wanted to try out something new. I had to get creative with this rubber silicone jelly-type watch strap.
Much like what I did with my DIY Notebooks, I wanted to do some stitching. I started out by making tiny dot markings on the straps.
I chose a complementary-colored thread that would match the strap I wanted to use.
Then, I stitched away! At first, I thought the straps were going to be too thick to stitch through. The straps were thick but fairly easy to poke holes through.
I made small chevron stitches on either side of the watch face. I popped in my black and white houndstooth face. All done! ♥
Can’t buy from Tomato? Try using these watches instead!
