DIY : Bike Accessories
Some DIYs I enjoyed making for my new hobby…
1. DIY Face mask :
Face masks are great sun protection. I downloaded the pattern from Craft Passion’s Face Mask tutorial. The instructions are very clear and now I have half a dozen of them. I look dressed to rob a bank.
2. Refashion Bike Helmet :
My helmet found a new owner so I’m using my husband’s cap-style one. I wrapped ribbon around one of the bands and sew some t-shirt fabric around another. New helmet in an afternoon.
3. DIY Crochet Fingerless Gloves :
This is a free pattern from Lion Brand. The actual pattern has slots for the fingers. Somehow when I got to that part, I got all crossed-eyed and was completely lost. I crochet straight across after I formed the “thumb hole ” and join the stitches to the other side. Then single crochet all around to form a tube thing. Hope that explains the funny shape.
The actual pattern looks like this :
Sweet, huh ? You can get the pattern by logging in to their site and search for “crochet driving gloves”.
4. Bike Bag LED Lights :
Yes, I still haven’t posted the how-to for this messenger bag and now it have lights. Very bright lights too. I found out the auto section have these LEDs in a variety of shapes at very reasonable price. The lights come with peel off 3M sticker backing and a pack of batteries. No switch included though, so whenever I need to turn it on, I have to hot wire it and wrap it in electrical tape. It’s actually a fun thing to do.
Love the helmet, but can’t find it anywhere. Would you tell me who makes it?
Thks, I got it from a local bike fair, doesn’t come with a box or tags. It’s brandless. However, I did a google image search n found an online shop that carries it. Link here-> http://www.unikcycle.com/helmet/helmet-cap-flag . (I’ve never shop there tho, just found the link )
