Here are the instructions for how to make a cute little play watch. The first photo is the one I have done for the tutorial and the second one is the original I made for my daughter many moons ago. For the original I just used a liquid paper pen to add the 'watch face' if you can call it that. It has nearly worn away now but it has lasted well considering I made it at least 5 yrs ago as a quick problem solver for a toddler desperate for a watch like Mummy's and has been worn a lot. Lord A (nearly 4 yrs old) now tries to get it as well.
All you need is some wide elastic, a large'ish button with a flat side, needle and thread and a permanent marker of some sort.
Then I couldn't resist adding in a cute little felt flower just to girlie it up a bit.
Measure around your child's wrist and allow a little for overlap.
Stitch through the overlap securely. You could use a sewing machine if you want but I did it by hand and it is very fast.
Use your marker to draw in your clock face. I decided to add numbers to this one. I also used the wrong side of the button because it gave me a flatter surface.
Layer the button and flower over the join in the elastic and stitch through all thicknesses to secure. I used the green sharpie to colour over the white thread too. As a safety note, I used a double thread and stitched the button on very securely. Definitely do this if you are making this for a toddler.
