  • How to make an accessory. Bicycle Riding Skirt Band - Step 1
    Step 1

    Measure your thies (circumference) just above your knees or higher (depending on the length of the skirts/dresses you wear). This will be the length of the rubber bands - cut two! Overlap the ends of the rubber bands so the overlapping is a bit bigger than your magnets. Pin in place!

    Step 2

    Sew three sides of the overlapping part with a zig zag stich so that you make a small pocket in which the magnet will fit! Slide your magnet into the pocket in the rubber band!

    Sew the opening of the pocket on the rubber band closed with a zig zag stich, while holding the magnet with your fingers so that it won't damage the sewing machine needle! Repeat steps 2 and 3 with the other band.

  • How to make an accessory. Bicycle Riding Skirt Band - Step 5

    Put two hearts together so that the wrong sides are facing each other and sew along edges leaving a small opening for the magnet! Slide the magnet into the pocket and sew the opening closed, again be carefull not to damage your needle! Repeat with other two hearts!

  • How to make an accessory. Bicycle Riding Skirt Band - Step 6
    Step 6

    The rubber bands are worn on your thies, skirt or dress over them. When you are riding secure the skirt/dress by putting the heart with the magnet on your skirt/dress at the place where rubber band magnet is (the skirt/dress fabric is in between)! These two magnets will attract each other and keep the skirt/dress in place!
