DIY reflective Arm Bands

Especially when we are on the way with our bicycles we want to be seen by all road users when it's dark. 
So I made this reflective arm bands for my granddaughter and me. 
What you need: 
webbing (I bought this neon webbing in a hardware store) 
reflective heat transfer vinyl (HTV) 
punch or electronic cutting machine (I used my Silhouette Cameo) 
Gerade wenn wir im Dunkeln mit dem Fahrrad unterwegs sind, wollen wir von allen Verkehrsteilnehmern wahrgenommen werden. Also hab ich für meine Enkelin und mich diese reflektierenden Armbänder gemacht. 
Was man braucht: 
Gurtband (hab ich im Baumarkt gekauft) 
reflektierende Bügelfolie (Flex) 
Stanzer oder Plotter (ich hab meinen Silhouette Cameo genommen)

Cut the webbing and seal the ends with the lighter. 
Lenght for my granddaughter: 27 cm, for me: 40 cm
Gurtband schneiden, und die Enden mit dem Feuerzeug sichern. Länge für meine Enkelin: 27 cm, für mich: 40 cm

Cut the reflective heat transfer vinyl with scissors, punch or electronic cutting machine. 
Die reflektierene Flex mit Schere, Stanzer oder Plotter schneiden.

Press the reflektive HTV onto the webbings with an iron or a heat press. 
Die reflektierende Flex mit Bügeleisen oder Transferpresse auf die Gurtbänder pressen.

Sew one part of the velcro onto the front and the other part onto the other end of the back. 
Einen Teil des Klettverschlusses auf die Vorderseite und den anderen Teil auf das andere Ende der Rückseite nähen.

And it's done!

We also wear safety vests but we also want that our arms are seen, when we hold out the hands for concerning maneuvering. 
Wir tragen auch Sicherheitswesten, aber wir möchten auch, dass unsere Arme gesehen werden, wenn wir die Hände zum Abbiegen raus halten.
