We had an old leather journal cover with holes punched aloud the outside. Mark cut a strip, added some waxed thread, and made himself a watchband.
Unfortunately, it has since made it through the wash in a pocket of some pants, so while the band still looks great, the watch doesn’t keep time. So sad. Oh well, I’ve washed worse before. Like a red crayon in a load of brand new baby outfits… Yep that one brought me to tears. (Thanks to borax and oxyclean I got most of it out!)
