You can find a little measuring tape in most simple sewing kits. Or, here’s a simple life hack for ya: all you have to do is take a piece of paper, cut a thin strip and wrap it around your wrist. Then, mark or hold the spot and hold that piece of paper up to the ruler that is laying around your house somewhere. You’ll want to take note of the measurement in millimeters (mm).
