How to make a watch band?
you cut a piece of leather just a strip. Put in the strap pins first, then thread the leather strip (cut to exact width by use of a ruler - a stainless steel one is also great for a straight edge guide for the utility blade. Press hard for a clean cut) through the pins and then attach snaps... A buckle would require sewing and / or much more detailed instructions. Good luck and have fun ©firstname.lastname@example.org
