A blog about the things I make and modify, with occasional thrift purchases that I am especially proud of. Some things I make to hopefully sell, others I just want to show off, but the right price will take anything--shoot me an email if you are interested!
Once upon a time, I made dinner for my (then) girlfriend. It was a huge undertaking (for me, anyway) consuming hours. I probably bit off a little more than I could chew, but I wanted to do something special. Reminiscing over memories of delicious Mediterranean cuisine I enjoyed with friends in school, I decided to make:
After about a quarter of a day, I think it turned out pretty well, considering the only thing I had previously cooked was an omelet. Lawrence of Arabia came on, so that was somewhat fitting, I guess. We ate on the coffee table and cushions, because I thought it would be more authentic that way. It looked like this:
These are about 8" by 4", and will hold relatively flat (Wayfarer!) sunglasses, or average-sized pipes quite easily. They are made out of padded foam with a soft inner lining and stylish plaid outer layer. I made them because I was tired of having to be careful with my pipes when I took them in my car or wanted to throw them in a bag for a trip. Anyone want one for $12?
