an Accessory of Personality :)
Using exacto knife, cut a round band/strip (use "seam" as guide to form edges) from a plastic bottle that fits around the wrist (and maybe over the hand) with at least an extra inch.
Use a ruler and permanent marker to make sure the edges are straight and even, and cut with the sturdy scissors.
Measure ribbon to length of plastic strip/band, cutting as many as needed to fit width of the plastic strip/band. (I have use two or even three "strands" of ribbon").
Cut an exceptionally long length of ribbon or yarn to wrap around the plastic strip/band.
Add small pieces/dabs of double-sided tape or strong glue to the outside of the plastic strip/band, and place the "strands" of ribbon onto the plastic - If you are using multiple "strands", you may need to overlap the ribbon a little to make the pattern seamless/make the ribbon fit the width.
Cut out desired felt decorations and gather the buttons you want to use, and glue/sew them onto the ribbon covered plastic - It may seem hard, but the plastic gives quite easily with a tiny bit of coaxing.
Measure felt to length and width of plastic and cut out.
Add small pieces/dabs of double-sided tape or strong glue to the inside of the plastic strip/band, and place the felt lining onto the plastic to cover the stitches (and even the wrapped ribbon/yarn if that was the chosen option) BUT keep one end loose from the plastic.
FOR THOSE WHO CHOSE TO MAKE A PLASTIC STRIP:
With the loose end, place one side of the velcro circles centered at the edge, and (depending on the stickiness of the velcro back) sew onto end, then tape/glue the end onto the plastic; adding the other side of the velcro dot centered and at the edge of the ribbon side.
Using more thread, with the needle, sew around the edges of the entire piece (and even the other velcro circle if desired) - I choose to do so for decoration/personal touch and helping to ensure that the ribbon and felt do not slide around if the tape/glue were to decide to "fail".
