Yeah, sure. Find some neoprene and a sleeve pattern and you've probably got it made, cut/detailing/tailoring aside.

Get a metal pipe that is around the same size as your finger. Heat the nail with a blow torch. Then just slowly bend to fit the pipe. Depending on what kind of nail you use you can quench in oil or just let it cool some.

make sure you wear thick leather gloves or cheap welding gloves from harbor freight.

As per Drew's advice I had a look at some patterns from japan. Those guys are fucking crazy. The patterns are really nice, but it's like they never hold back. Crazy techniques all over them, some I've never seen before.

And their symbol guides suck:


What is this shit?

Yeah, if you ever get a Japanese crafts book, be it sewing, leather goods, knits, etc - they do not fuck around. It's everything you need to get to a pro-type level, and the patterns and stuff are always good. If you can master the crafts, the techniques are full on to the point you can sell the goods. The instructions are actually pretty easy, you just gotta sit down and do the 'what is different about this picture' thing - most Japanese people seem to be able to look at a picture like that and get it.

I had a look at some more, it's really not as bad as it first seemed. I think I'm just used to learning from videos. I wanna be the ToJ of knitwear. (9)

I just slimmed some of those cheap sweat pants I was talking about and its soo comfortable, probs wont wear them out but they are comfy and warm. They were huge when I bought them. Took a while as I am not familiar with mums machine. Who here actually has a sewing machine?
