Step 1: Gather the Matherials

You will need:

- A piece of leather ( must be at least 6 by 7 inches)

- A leather punch tool

- Some leather suede string ( I am using 48 inches)

-heavy duty scissors

-pen (optional)

-ruler (optional)

Step 2: Cut the Leather

In this case, I cut two leather pieces 3 by 3 1/2 inches long. But, if your hair is really thick you will want to make a longer strip to wrap around your hair and vice versa. Also, you can make the width longer if you have longer hair.

Step 3: Punch the Holes

Punch parallel holes along the short sides of your leather pieces. In this case, I am using four holes. If your have longer hair, you may want to punch more. The holes should be big enough to fit your string through.

Step 4: Lace It Up

Cut your 48 inch string into two pieces. Crisscross lace the strings through the holes, just like shoe-laces! You are almost finished.

Step 5: Put Them On!

Loosen up the lacing and slip them over your already tied pigtails. Tighten and tie off in a bow. You are finished!
