How To Use Swatches: Patchwork Headband

If you have swatches you might wonder how to use them.
First, I have made a belt of my swatches. But one of the knooked pieces looked really bulky because of its stretchability. So I had to replace it or to use its bulkiness.
Now, you can see the bulky piece in the front of my headband - it is the red one.
