This broken watch has been hanging out in my box of jewelry supplies for several years now. It's missing all of its essential pieces, so it's useless as a timepiece--but it still makes a cute bracelet. And in summer, who really cares what time it is anyway?
I made a tiny cross-stitch sun to fit inside the watch case. You can click here to download and print the Small Sun Cross-Stitch Chart. My watch is pretty small, so I used 22-count Aida fabric so the finished design would fit. If your watch is larger, you can use another fabric--18-count or 14-count, for example--to create a larger sun design. When the stitching is complete, measure the diameter of the opening on the back of the watch and use a disappearing fabric marker to draw a same-size circle around the sun. Cut along the line and fit sun the watch case.
If your watch still has a back piece, you can snap it in place. My watch didn't have a back, so I used super glue to attach a flat orange button over the opening. For a finishing touch, I made a colorful stem for the bracelet. I slid a yellow seed bead onto a jewelry head pin, cut the pin to fit, and then used super glue to secure it in the stem opening.
