Steampunk Goggles Tutorial by mtani Steampunk Goggles Tutorial by mtani
Quite a few have asked me how I made my Steampunk goggles, so instead of having to repeat myself I decided to make a tutorial =)

This way of making a pair of goggles is perfect if you're on a tight budget, as you've probably got all you need in your house already ^_^

For a better picture of the finished goggles look here [link]

This is great! I'm collecting tutorials on these XD Planning to make some at some point.

Just one thing, do you have a template for the pieces of leather which make the eyepieces? How do you work out how they should fit?

I've found myself hoarding Nesquick bottle caps just to use them for making goggles. They're the PERFECT size~!

I do have a question, though. Where did you get your leather? I'm having a bit of trouble finding some at a reasonable price.

i found some fake leather (fairly {actually, very} thin) for £6.49 per metre in Hobbycraft ^^ it looks nice, but may need some other fabric underneath to line it, for more stability

I would also recommend putting some kind of protectant liner on the edge of the lenses, just in case...

Very cool! One question: how did you cut out the middle of the bottle caps? I broke the entire cap trying scissors and other materials I found.

I used a craft knife, had no problem with that :)

I tried using that too but it broke anyway. Probably used the wrong caps then. Ah well, I'll try it another time. Thanks anyway! :)

ahw, that's strange. Maybe the bottle caps were thicker than the ones I used.. :? Good luck if you try again! :)

I think they were some kind of hard plastic. Thank you! I made my goggles already using the glasses of two clocks. It's hard to imagine what it should look like but it's cool, I'm telling ya'! :)

how long and what shape are the leather pieces you used?
Reply
:iconmtani:
mtani Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2010
Sorry about the late reply! >.<
I didn't measure the pieces, but the short side was measured to reach around the bottle caps, and overlapping a bit. So the ends could be stitched together. The length of the side that stick out from the caps and rests against your skin/hat were a bit longer. I didn't measure this part either, just cut it long enough to be sure it wouldn't be too short. The shape was just a square. I cut the pieces into right shape and length once they were stitched in place around the bottle caps. :) I hope this made any sense?

Are there any other materials you can suggest besides leather? I love the tutorial, but I'm pretty much an eco-lover and I hate to use leather in any of my projects. D:

:iconmtani:
mtani Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2010
Thank you! ^__^
Hehe, I know the feeling! If you still want the leather-look, you could use pleather or leatherette, which is synthetic leather, plastic basically. Most fabric stores or hobby stores have these types. I hope that helps :)
