I just bought a very expensive Ski Helmet and it didn't come with a protective covering or tote. I know it will take some abuse from skiing but I did not want any damage when storing it or transporting my new Helmet to and from many ski areas. So I set out to make a cool looking and protective bag and wanted to share it with you. It works and it was EASY! It would make a great gift for your favorite skier too!
Step 1: Getting and Preparing your Materials
Find cheap durable Materials
I was going to use some old utility clothing until I found some great stuff at Wal-Mart. I found all of my material in the remnants area (Left over pieces) in the craft department.
Three types of material were used, Black Fleece, White Nylon, and a Felt-like/nylon backed Orange piece. (OLD SCHOOL TECNICA COLORS) I had them cut a yard in each material. I also bought a 2 pack of cord stops, a spool of black thread and some fine cord.
I spent less than $10 for everything!
Preparing your Materials.
1 1/2 yards of material (I used 3 different types of material of a 1/2yd. each)
Cord Stops (only one needed)
And a Craftsman Tape Measure (It must be a Craftsman) Due to the exact measurements needed. ;-)
I am a novice at using a sewing machine and I thought this was a fun and easy project!
So let's get started...
