Aviator Caps for Sale! With Coupon!

My latest giveaway to celebrate 100k pageviews on DeviantArt went amazingly well last week! I reached over 2200 entries, which is 3x as many as my last largest giveaway for the BMO plush. I want to extend a huge thank you to everyone that entered; the outpouring of support and well-wishing was amazing and I can’t get over how sweet and supportive everyone was!

Over the course of the giveaway I actually reached another goal, 4k+ DeviantArt watchers, so the giveaway was bumped up to two winners instead of one 😀 The winners (BreezePleeze and KatWynn of DeviantArt) and I are now hammering out their custom hat details, but that means I can now offer the rest of the hats to you for purchase!

Aviator Cap Compilation

Above you’ll see all of the sample hats I’ve created to showcase the suedecloth fabric I have in stock. Check out my newly updated Etsy store for these ready-to-ship hats (which are cheaper and don’t require any creation time) and also listings for custom hats sorted by suede color. Because Etsy only allows two variations per listing, you’ll find there are only options to choose your ear and headflap combo and side motif. Though if you want to customize even more (like lining or paint colors), you’ll just need to contact me first to sort out the details. The turnaround time for the caps is listed as 2 weeks, which is a big overestimation, but that’s only as an insurance policy in case people buy out ALL the hats at once. Not likely, but I thought I should be safe.

As my way of saying thanks to all of you for participating in my giveaway and helping me get to 100k+ pageviews and 4k+ watchers, please use this coupon if you get yourself a hat!

The coupon code is good for the entire store, but the suede I have in stock is limited, so if you had your eye on an aviator cap I encourage you to buy it soon! This coupon is good until the end of the month, so you have a few weeks to take action ^-^

That should finally wrap things up with the aviator cap giveaway ^-^ Thank again to all of you that gave your support or entered the giveaway. I hope you’ll check out the hat collection if you’re still interested and save some money in the meantime too!

Custom Steampunk Cap Giveaway!

SteampunkCapGiveaway

Hello everyone! As promised, I’m announcing the new giveaway to celebrate 100k pageviews on my DeviantArt page!

The winner of this giveaway will receive a custom steampunk aviator cap! This is a design I’ve been wanting to implement for a long time now – a suede cloth aviator cap with minky faux fur lining and a choice of hand-painted motifs on the side. The chosen winner will get to work with me and pick out the color, ears, headflap, motif, you name it!

And, when the giveaway is finished, I’ll be launching the rest of the hats on my Etsy store! You’ll get the same color selection with a few custom options. Be sure to check back here when the winner is announced as I’ll be giving out a coupon!

Since the giveaway is due to my 100k kiriban on DeviantArt, I’m actually hosting the giveaway there 🙂 So to get all the details and enter you’ll need to visit my DeviantArt page directly (and make an account if you don’t already have one). I just wanted all of my followers on here to get the heads up as well ^0^

Good luck to everyone who enters! ♥

Freebie Friday! The Engineer’s Pouch

I did something a little steampunky again ^-^ It’s nothing to get too excited about, just a little pouch that I thought would work nicely looped through someone’s belt. Last year I made by boyfriend Batman-themed utility pouches that were a ton of fun to sew, so I wanted to dabble in it again. Since I still had lots of leftover brown and gold fabrics, the combination of this little brown pouch with gold gears seemed like a nice fit! I can totally imagine wearing this on my belt to hold my scissors, pins, and measuring tape >w< It features a flap with turn lock closure, two upper loops for going around your belt, and a small gusset on the bottom to give it a bit of extra depth.

Freebie Friday: The Scientist’s Satchel

Well, check this out 😀 I’ve gone steampunk! I realize despite my nerdishness that I’ve never actually gone out of my way to show how much I love steampunk. But here it is! Granted, this is a very simple rendition of my fandom, since I was limited to just using my scraps, but I’m glad I finally got to do something with an alternate-future flair ^-^ In truth, I’m a huge fan of old school science fiction and always have been from late elementary school, particularly H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. I love the whole aesthetic notion that high-tech science existed in the shadows of the Victorian world.

I’m so very glad that I was able to use up this scraps of fabric 😀 This bag is made from leftovers of a skirt I made back in early college, when I was going for this sort of bohemian look that didn’t quite pan out XD I always thought this faux suede was gorgeous and wanted to find the right use for it, but nothing ever came up because the scraps were too irregularly shaped. Beyond that, the fabric was incredibly hard to sew through despite being lightweight. It’s a strange sewing anomaly I encounter once in a while xB must have something to do with fiber content and thread count.

However, I think this turned out to be a really great looking messenger-style bag with a super-useful front pocket and awesome turn-lock closure. I hope you’ll give it a try with your favorite neo-Victorian fabric ^-~
