Great for sewing or diy. No more dangerous pins between the teeth or dropped screws with this quick stitch wristband.
fabric about 11 by 2.5 inches for a woman’s wrist – light denim ok, cotton better
velcro, 7 mini magnets, 6x 0.5 inch strip of magnetic sheet from craft shop, glue, needle and thread
Fix Velcro towards opposite corners of the fabric i.e. top right and bottom left so that when the fabric is folded the strip will fasten comfortably around the wrist, stitch Velcro in place
Fold the fabric in half, with right sides facing, to form a thin strip and stitch round the three open sides, leaving a turning gap about half way along the long side. Turn fabric right side out.
Stick mini magnets along the magnetic sheet, spacing them evenly. I used multi medium glue. When dry, slide the strip in to the fabric through the turning gap – make sure the magnets are facing up to what will be the top of your wrist band
Top stitch all around the edge and you are done.

That is clever!
Thank you, inspired by various posts that suggested filleting and stuffing an old 70s style sweatband.
