Q&A with Ms. Elaineous

Kim_Jones asked:
I'm gon'a MAKE THIS!!!! I JUST bought this SAME watch on eBay - love the vintage look - AND it glows!!!
Ms. Elaineous answered:
That is hilarious. I am going to go to the Salvation Army tomorrow and see what I can find!
Catlady2 asked:
Thank you thank you thank you!!! My watch band (metal) broke (after nearly 25 years!) and besides, I have a severe nickel allergy - the thought of making a fabric watch band never occurred to me!! Now, though, I can make one and start wearing my watch again!! :) :)
Ms. Elaineous answered:
YAY! I'm on my semester break and have some more ideas floating around. I want to take the same idea and make a magnetic wrist ban for pins!
ejkm00re1221334 asked:
This is a dream come true for me. I have a big bone structure (large wrists) & one watch with a large face, with another in the works of purchasing. It's extremely hard to find bands wide enough for the large faced watches & long enough for all of my watches to fit my Amazonian wrists. I'm squealing with deslight inside! Thank you so very much!
Ms. Elaineous answered:
YAY! Be sure to post pictures when you are done!
Tina Mcginniss asked:
