Do you remember the eye patch that I was trying to make? Well, I couldnt decide on the strap at all... but as I was shopping after work on Friday evening (needed the new Burda so decided to wander through the stationary section a bit, oh how I miss going to school just for the school supplies!) I found these 'paper fasteners split pins'.
I never thought of these but they were perfect! That way I could make it look like heavy metal stuff but it would just be lightweight and comfy :)
So I took a bit of brown woollen fabric that I had leftover from the bf's Jedi cloak years ago (must really post the pics someday as there is a whole story attached) and just pushed these through and split them open on the inside. I was going to line it with cotton but then it wouldnt have gone through the tiny loop. But this way works as well.
As you can see, am trying to show you as much as I can without showing you the rest. But ok ok, am already typing up the next bit. Oh this is so exciting, I am so happy to be back online!
