Introduction: Beats in the Hood Hoodie
I had this idea for a long time, and finaly i did it. I was realy surprised how well it worked out for the first time :) .
The Hood lining was thin, so with thicker lining it may not be easy.
Step 1: What You'll Need
Old headphones (mine was broken headband), zip-ties, needle and thread, knive or scissors, flathead screwdriver. oh and hoodie :)
Step 2: Prepare Headphones
Seperate the headphone shell with screwdriver. but do that carefuly - don't cut the wires. Mine headphones had vents that i will gona use for inserting zip-ties. If your headphones doesn't have holes, then you probably need to drill some.
Step 3: Measure
Make some guide lines on the hood. Outer line is headphone size. Inner line is where cut out needs to be. Leave some fabrik to be folded and zip-tied to the headphone. Don't cut out too much. Also make cuts where wire will exit the hood and in the pocket.
Step 4: Sew the Edges for Fabric Not to Tear.
Sew the edges on the pocket and the hood where wire will exit.
Step 5: Wiring :)
Push through wire all the way to the pocket.
Step 6: Tying the Headphones
Put heaphone frame inside the hood through the hole that was cut out. Don't forget to insert other side heaphone through the same hole (because wires :) ).
Make some cuts for zip-ties in fabric. Cuts needs to be somewhere on the outer line.
Insert zip-ties through the holes in the headphone and through the fabric.
Tie the Zip out of it :)
Step 7: Finishing Touches
Tied zips should look like this.
Make sure that fabric won't obscure the holes for puting headphones all together.
If it does make some cuts where the holes are.
Step 8: All Done
Enjoy some beats in your hoodie.

Great idea. Do you think that this would work with just a set of ear buds?

Thanks. With earbuds it should a bit diferent. Right now headphones are in fixed position. I think earbuds should be movable, so you only need stopper for earbud - one zip-tie for wire.
