Between the boredom and the ugliness, something had to give. So I made cover-ups ;)
1. First, I found some old fabric and cut it into a long strip about as wide as an ace bandage. I wrapped that around my bandages so they were completely covered.
2. I found some lace ribbon and wrapped it around the same way.
3. At the ends of the fabric and ribbon I sewed some old buttons on to keep them from falling off, plus it added a cute touch. I put a couple extra buttons on in places I liked and TA-Da!!! easy as that. Now I have cute casts for the time being. Much better :)
