Handmade watches

How often from the TV screen, from the pages of magazines or online communities, we are taught how to make something beautiful out of nothing. And we look at this with the enthusiasm of teenage girls and enjoy. Oh, so if my hands grew from the right place, I would have done something too. How often do you visit such thoughts? Frankly, I am constantly. But, an old-fashioned established opinion that I can not even hold a needle in my hands properly, sits in me very confidently and firmly. But, probably at each such young lady as I, there came a moment when we said to ourselves: - I was, was not. Also undertook to make something "such", in 90% of cases throwing their pathetic attempts, not having had time to pass and a third of the way. But this time I said to myself: “Everything is enough, you have to finish the job, whatever the cost.” So, I remembered about the hours that had long been collecting dust on the shelf in the pantry and decided to make a thing of them which I will use.
One hundred years ago, some kind of "kind" person gave us this misery, which, as it was worth guessing, filled up a collection of unclaimed things. From the bottomless cabinet an old blouse was taken out into the light, with a beautiful material, but not suitable for a long time in size. Glue moment and screwdriver. The process has begun. Using a screwdriver, I took off the eerie plastic case from the watch, took out the glass and looked at the dial, which I had to glue here and there.

Then, cut off a suitable piece of cloth from the blouse and cut a hole in it in the center. By the way, not to miss with the size, it was possible only with the second attempt, as in the first, the material barely reached the rim. So from my own experience I can say it is better to cut off more and then to cut it already on the rim of the watch. The time-consuming and most unpleasant moment followed, it was necessary to glue the plastic cover over the material.
With the help of glue and someone's mother, I managed to do it. True, I had to say goodbye to the manicure and a couple of times to tear off the fingers, which were glued instead of fabric. But through trial and error, I guessed that it was easier to use an old ballpoint pen, the flip side of which is very simple to glue material.When I had to tear off and redo my moaning, because the fabric was bristling, I won’t even tell. And as the glue dried up, it was possible to assemble the watch again. Strangely enough, they looked very nice, but something was missing. And then I remembered the butterflies that “live” in the tasteless picture of my girlfriend, making her very cool. It was decided to make a decor from butterflies. Draw a pattern on paper and cut it out. Then, I found a cover from a salad, which I bought by weight a few days ago, and I realized that this plastic would fit one hundred percent. Moved the template to plastic and cut out two butterflies.
Bent at the beginning of the wings, as the plastic for this was quite soft. After I had to remember my childhood and start drawing. Useful old varnishes for nails, which was in abundance. On the front I painted a base, a red-orange color.  fabric
Made a bronze rim, painted flashes of pale pink and golden, and placed four dots on white in white every butterfly. The result made me happy, the butterflies gleamed, but were not fanciful or too variegated, which would be superfluous for a gray-blue fabric with a paisley pattern on the rim of the watch. I glued them to the clock in no particular order and began to enjoy the result.

Just two hours of work, ruined manicure and glue-stripped skin on the fingers. But the result exceeded all my expectations. Cute watch with butterflies now hang on my most central place. And strangely enough, after an hour I did not think about manicure and dried glue, but I looked at my watch often, because I really like them.
