You may have noticed from the title that this post is not inspired by anone.
I have been in one of those moods today that make me feel like talking to strangers, having my picture taken in the middle of our neighborhood and creating a new invention, which I call, 'The Man-Watch Belt'. It must be because of the sun shining and the thought of only three days left of class!
Also, I am feeling a million times better than I did last week. Being sick is the pits.
To introduce the cause of this burst of creativity, I give you 'The Man-Watch'. I found it for a few dollars at our nearest thrift store. I don't know what kind of adventures this watch has been through, but it must have been enough to wear down the leather a bit and stop the digital front from working. Which are both perfect for my experiment.
Also, be warned: this post is a bit photo-friendly. I realize that I may have taken way too many pictures of the project!↑ into this ↓.
Again, bring the first (3) of the two top strands down to the center of the bottom two. And now the previous top far right (4) will flip over and take it's place so that (2) can go into the center...
Once you get the hang of it you can make the weaving tighter and you won't even have to think about which strand goes where. It becomes habit. It might seem hard at first, but at least you didn't have to learn how to make it with strands of bread dough like I did.
Believe me, it looks great when it's done. It almost reminds me of a chain.
By the way - can you tell we were watching The Masters? Go Bubba!
And there you are... what better way to end than a great shot of my backside?
