Welcome to GO FISH SEWING!
One woman shop here.
Practicing all the social distancing and clean environment standards...lots of hand-washing over here!

One thing that helps...GET YOUR FITBIT OFF YOUR WRIST!!!! Try an ankle band or a band for your BRA! Seriously, you won't regret it! Stay healthy and keep tracking your steps but don't jeopardize your hand-washing protocols!

HEALTH CARE WORKERS!!! First, thank you for your work on the front-lines!!! Second, try wearing your Fitbit on a bra strap, in between the cups of your bra, on a waist band or belt loop or attached to your badge! Get it off your wrist without having to give up your stats and fitness motivation.

Try a super comfortable fabric replacement to your uncomfortable Fitbit band! Browse the shop.
Message me with any questions!!

READY TO SHIP section has been updated and expanded with lots of pre-made Fitbit comfort band accessories. I have been intentional about creating items that can ship out immediately for you all. There are sooooo many options and they are listed in collections. Please read descriptions carefully and select the sizes that will work for you. No returns on READY TO SHIP items.

IF ordering bracelet or anklet PLEASE, provide your EXACT wrist and/or ankle measures for the best custom fit when ordering! If you need a soft tape measure you can print a free one here: https://printable-ruler.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/measuring-tape-24in-16th-inches-Letter.pdf
Default sizes are 6.5" wrist and 9" ankle but custom fit is best!!

FREE GIFT: When supply allows, I include a free, randomly selected headband along with your comfort band shipment. If headbands are "not your thing" I hope that you will gift it forward! I love to wear my headbands for running (can not stand wispy hair in my face) but even more so, for keeping my hair back when I wash my face!

NEW ON ETSY!! I have listings for 4 packs available! Basically, a buy 3 get 4th free option (which includes a bulk shipping discount!)!! If you do not see a listing for a 4-pack for your device, message me and I will honor the discount!

NEW So, so, sooo many new snaps to choose from to add a bit of personal flare to your fitbit cover! Scroll through the listing photos to see all the options! Supplies of each are limited.

Your Fitbit comfort bands are machine washable! 😊 Wash in cold water as needed to keep the fabric looking clean and tight to your exact fit! Also, not so important for wrist wear...but SUPER important for ankle wear...USE THE SNAPS!
Yes, they are tight at first. They are industrial strength by design. (If you need to, you can use a tiny dab of Vaseline or even chap stick on the socket side and they will open and close easier for you while still remaining super secure!) I do admit to not using the snaps when I wear my Fitbit on my wrist but stretching your Fitbit comfort band over your foot will strain your fabric unnecessarily!

If you need to order a quantity greater than what is available...please convo me and I can make a private listing for you!

Fitbit has made lots of improvements but one thing they can't get around is the fact that wearing a plastic band 24/7 is just plain uncomfortable. Need a rash guard for your device?? Don't worry! I make a cover or supremely comfortable band replacement for them all!!

Be sure to check out all my color listings and don't limit yourself to just one comfort band, you will want to be able to change them out!! OH!!! And goodness, don't hide your stats!!! Isn't that the best part about fitbit!?! Check your stats in the window! "W/ WINDOW" in the listing means it will have a sewn-in vinyl window so you can see your device's screen!

You are all just amazing and I am blessed beyond words to sew for you! Happy STEPPING!! If you read down to here WOW, you are even more amazing!!! FOLLOW ON FACEBOOK FOR UPDATES AND DEALS! https://www.facebook.com/gofishsewing

Video summary: You know what's good therapy?? Getting outside and taking a walk! Whether you wear your Fitbit on your wrist or your ankle, a comfort band will make you forget it is on!

Sewing for you all is my dream job!

I learned to sew mostly from my Mom and, at times, internet tutorials. I love it! I love the connection it gives me with my mom and with my grandmother who I never got to meet. I love that I always have a relaxing, creative outlet and that I NEVER stop learning! I have recently started sewing garments too. Wow, talk about a learning curve! So, though Fitbit and Garmin band covers have made my shop what it is today...you will also find other creations in my Etsy shop. Every year during the holiday season I sell my wares at craft shows around my area. I sell boot cuffs and purses and scarves and headbands that I work on throughout the year. Many are t-shirt upcycles just because I LOVE t shirts but hate wearing them! I just like the decals and bling and colors...so I turn them into pretty things. You will find these treasures listed in my shop.

I started making fitbit covers several years ago after a dear friend of mine started getting a rash from hers. We were in a fitness/weight loss group together with several other gals and we were all competing for "most steps." My friend got a rash and at first took her fitbit off. We missed her terribly in the competition until she started wrapping a scrap of fabric around her wrist and then wearing the fitbit on top. Well, I'm sorry, but that did not look good!! I daydreamed up a fitbit cover to make for her and then late one night, in my pink polka-dot jammies I stitched it up for her and sent her a late-night text pic. We were pretty excited when it worked for her!

I posted the pic on Facebook and slowly but surely got a few orders here and there. In April of 2014 I opened my etsy shop and have been growing since then. For the first year and a half or so I worked in the wee hours of the night and early mornings while my household slept. A few years ago, when my son started full day kindergarten I started working during the 6 hours of actual day-light while he is in school! It is wonderful. Sewing for my etsy shop is my absolute dream job!

Fitbit has made so many improvements since I started wearing their products. (I am a very good customer! I have owned one of every product!) One thing they can't get around...wearing a plastic band around your wrist all day is just plain uncomfortable. My Fitbit covers will make your Fitbit obsession so comfortable! Try wearing your Fitbit band on your ankle with one of my ankle modifications. My covers look sleek and polished and you will get credit for all your steps! EVEN WHEN YOU CARRY THINGS OR PUSH A CART or hold onto the treadmill grips! You even have an option to see your stats in the sewn-in window!

A few years back I was in a study group and we were reading a book called Becoming Myself by Stasi Eldredge. In one of the workbook portions it asked the question, "What would you want to do for work if you could dream BIG and do absolutely anything imaginable?" One of the things I wrote was that I would like to sew as my job. That seemed outlandish to me! I am a high school math teacher by trade and as much as I love sewing and crafting I could never actually believe that it would be my job! And see now it is!! A dream job! An answer to prayers! I am truly grateful that I get to sew for you all! Thank you!

Thanks so much for stopping by my page and reading my story! If you read this far- you are amazing! I am truly grateful for YOU!!!!! Send me a convo to say Hi!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

ALL comfort bands are machine washable in cold water. Do not use fabric softener! Air dry flat. (Personally, I use a mesh bag so they don't get lost in the machine-but that is optional!)

Sizing details

PLEASE on items that are custom sized-give me your exact measurements. Do not subtract because you want it tight (this will cause the item to stretch unnecessarily) and do not add because you want it comfortable. I am telling you...an exact measure will yield a perfect and insanely comfortable fit!

Shipping issues

Sometimes USPS has delays and can take longer to deliver than the expected delivery time.

I (seller) am not responsible for any loss, damages, delays, and/or custom delays incurred once packages are shipped.

If you wish to add insurance or upgrade to a faster service, please send a convo before purchasing, and I will calculate the new cost and request additional payment. If your country or local post office has a history of lost packages, I would strongly advise adding insurance to your order.

All International packages are declared as commercial items on the customs form. The customer is responsible for any additional tax fees that may apply from your respective country.
