There’s a sewing room/lab upstairs that was waiting for me to have a bit of free time. I’ve liked the idea of sewing, but I really needed to practice, and because I wanted to make a thing that has a variety of stitches and joins, and something I don’t mind having a lot of, I settled on making jockstraps.
Leather jockstraps, mostly. There are some neoprene ones I may show, but people, once they’ve seen them seem to want one, so I don’t have a lot of them left to display. I had no idea that a regular sewing machine will sew garment-quality leather if you go slowly and carefully until you get the hang of things, then you can up the speeds.
Here’s a few of the jockstraps I’ve made so far.
…side note – a lot of my blogging is about to move to Patreon. If I’m writing content that you like, maybe you could drop by, and subscribe for a few bucks a month? I’m looking to make more time to create, but exposure doesn’t pay rent or the light bill, so its time to see if this is something that can maybe start to support itself.
I’ve also started posting some of my paintings for sale here:
