Jen from Epbot is my hero. She is one of my go-to inspirations for Steampunk craft ideas and I had a major fan-girl moment when she posted a picture of the Steamy quilt I made for my Enabler on her blog.
Basically, it is a tutorial on how to make things looks like they are made of metal plates (using Aluminium tape and some random other bits for texture. Steampunk up your gear!
Looking around I realised I had nearly everything I needed, and I knew where to get the last things I need.
My Enabler is not just into Steampunk, but he has dreams of one day making his own exo-skeleton suit from scratch. For Christmas I gave him a pouch made of robot fabric to keep his doodle/sketch books and pencils safe and together.
Project, plus recipient acquired! When he gets home tonight I'll surprise him with his new artist's sketch book:
|Plain page sketch book with a new cover|
|All his own work.|
Someone come confiscate my tape before the coffee table gets a work over too!
