Enter Pinterest! I ran across a pin from a board on felt crafts that pictured a little watch made of felt. How fun! Unfortunately, it was a dead pin (it didn't lead to anything) so I have no idea where it came from. Luckily, I've got mad craft skills. Didn't take long to whip up this:
I decided to close it with a snap instead of velcro because I thought velcro was too bulky. It's still a smidge big on Rowan, but he'll grow in to it ;)
He loves it. You can ask him what time it is, and he looks at it really thoughtfully and says, "Almost 6 o'clock".
I'm thinking of selling them in my Etsy shop. What do you think?
