Default KM hoses

I ordered KM hoses 2 weeks ago and I didn't realize how big they were until I received them. I ended up having to sand down the tips to fit into my Hookah-Shisha.com hookah. Then I decided I would go ahead and make some hose covers for them since I was already working on the hoses. Here are some pics of what I have done. If anyone has similar hose covers, how did they make the ends so that they are easily removed from the hose? I am having trouble figuring out how to make them tight on the ends but loose enough to slide on.

You can buy elastic from any fabric store. Stretch it while you are sewing it on the fabric. That will keep the ends tight on the hose.....I've been thinking about this myself actually.

Wow those covers are looking pretty good, did you sew them yourself?. I think what Raid3n suggested would be your best bet (rubber bands or small buttons)

Do authentic KM hoses usually have a yellow tag with some Arabic writing on it?, if so I think I can buy one at a local store. That would be sweet, and I would use it as my hose for spice flavours, and keep my Razan for the fruits. All these pretty KM hoses that you guys keep posting pictures of, have inspired me to buy one.

I did sew them myself. Its hard to find good hose covers and these hoses were too big to use most of them anyway. They definately look beter than they originally did.
