You can get a yard of canvas for just over 5 dollars.

u/Y1ff · 9 pointsr/Undertale

You can also buy these!

Then, just print with a black background and attach it to a black pillow!

Or more conveniently, maybe line your pockets with conductive shielding fabric and have a portable faraday cage when on the go. Minimize risk of the phone sitting out there passively waiting to have data harvested. Then just deal with the inconvenience of not getting calls/texts in real-time, and that battery drain as the phone keeps looking for a transmitter to connect to (airplane mode to get it to stop looking).

Btw I didn’t pay $48! It was $30 with free shipping.

u/blue-citrus · 5 pointsr/learnart

Of course! All those canvases usually say they are “primed” which means gessoed HOWEVERRRRR once you do it yourself you’re gonna be like “what are they even talking about this canvas isn’t prepped at all” lmao. I was shook in college when I learned all this stuff. A good one is Liquitex gesso. You can honestly just buy the gallon of it if you end up liking it. It’ll last foreverrrrr

Gesso: Liquitex Professional White Gesso Surface Prep Medium, 32-oz (5332)

Brushes: Value-Pack 10-Pc Foam Paint Brush Set - Wood Handles by Industrial Tools

Sand paper: Sanding Sponge,Coarse/Medium/Fine/Superfine 4 Different Specifications Sanding Blocks Assortment,Washable and Reusable.

And then eventualllllllyyyyy, way off in the future:

Stanley Hand Tools 20-600 Clamping Miter Box & Saw

Stanley TR45K Light Duty Staple Gun Kit

Art Alternatives Canvas Pliers 8in

Nasco 1100424 Fine Arts Unprimed Cotton Canvas Roll, 6 yds x 62"

Also, occasionally I like to go to a thrift store, find a wacky printed dress or dress shirt, and stretch that over a wood frame. For that, or if you paint on wood, you can use clear gesso (my personal favvyyyyy as I almost always paint on wood and looooove wood grain to be incorporated into my paintings...or on canvas stretched over wooden boards)

If you know how to sew and have access to a sewing machine you can make some great restraints with nylon web and steel D rings. If you cant find a local shop to buy your supplies you should be able to get it all on amazon.

Here's what I used to make my own:

At least 64 inches of 2-inch nylon webbing

2-inch steel D rings - 4 of those

2-inch sew-on velcro.

Felt fabric

  1. Measure the circumference of your wrists and add 3.5 inches for the restraint to overlap and about 1 inch at either end for the hem. That will total up to something like 12 inches per restraint.
  2. Cut 4 more pieces of nylon at 4 inch lengths. This will be used to reinforce the D-ring on the inside of the webb.
  3. Cut 4 pieces of both parts of the Velcro. You’ll end up with 8 total pieces, 4 hook, 4 loop
  4. Cut 4 pieces of felt – 2in X 7.5in to fit to the inside of the restraint. Padding for your victim.

    Put it all together

  5. Hem the webbing or it will unravel. Fold the extra inch at either end of the web and sew it down for your hem.
  6. Add the Velcro at pieces at either end and sew it down. Make sure to test wrap it around your wrist to make sure the Velcro orients right (don’t put both pieces on the same side of the webbing).
  7. Slide the webbing through the D ring and position it at about the center of the webbing.
  8. Set your 4 inch piece of web on top of the flat part of the D-ring and sew it into place. This part holds the ring so it wont move around inside the restraint.
  9. Place your felt on the inside of the restraint and sew it into place.

    Hopefully the instructions are clear enough. Here’s what I posted when I made my own set.
    The red pull tab in the pictures wasn’t in the instructions above because I didn’t want to overcomplicate things.
    All together I spent about $24.00, but I bought all that locally.

    Feel free to ask any questions.
u/Sagasujin · 4 pointsr/sewing

I haven't seen that particular fabric but if you can make a similar design, Spoonflower can custom print you the fabric. Or you could print your own design onto blank fabric with these guys.

u/robotdinofight · 4 pointsr/hometheater

Use a layer of this white over this black, according to the wizards over at

I was able to find a very similar- 80% nylon, 20% spandex, matte, 4 way stretch, milliskin fabric over on amazon because i had a gift card here and here.

This will give you an acoustically transparent screen with great contrast and not see through.

u/MySherona · 4 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

A couple years ago for Christmas, I made my mother-in-law Celine Dion undies.

I just got a package of cotton briefs (Ew. the reconnaissance for this gift involved talking to my FIL about the type of panties she wore. Aw-kward.) Then I got printable iron-on transfer sheets, and printed out the images I wanted. I did a couple in photoshop, with the text tool as well. ("My Fart Will Go On," terrible, I know.)

The stuff that I used, on Amazon I found that if you get it a little hotter than they say, it actually kind of fuses into the fabric.

I was so worried that she wouldn't think they were funny, (she's an attorney and pretty conservative) but thankfully, she found them hysterical.

Good luck!

u/Earplugs123 · 3 pointsr/weddingplanning

Not OP, but I'm decorating my gazebo with $20 of tulle from Amazon and $7 ribbon from Costco. Here's a picture of my gazebo with a similar look to what I'm going for.

u/MangoCandy · 3 pointsr/EnamelPins

If you just want a cheap yet cute way to keep them from rubbing together I recommend going to your local Joann fabrics and looking. You can normally find a fabric like this (called tulle), for really cheap. You can cut it into little squares and tie the top off with a ribbon :) and it’s thin so you can still see the pin. It won’t protect it as much as the plastic bags however so it really comes down to preference.

I actually checked amazon and you can find it for super cheap!

u/sco0ts19 · 3 pointsr/EDC

I made it from this fabric. The design is similar to the hitch and timber duz-all with a back compartment for a notebook and two front compartments. The fabric is super easy to work with, seems pretty durable and doesn’t seem like it will fray at all.

u/I_Am_A_Robot_Cat_AMA · 3 pointsr/sewing

The closest you can get is a shiny stretch fabric often used in dance costumes. There are several shades of 'nude' and it's a four way stretch fabric, but it's opaque, so you won't see your own skin through it.

It's still powermesh but with a finer knit, like very lightweight swimsuit fabric. It'll be labelled superfine, and looks like this...

u/ohliamylia · 3 pointsr/DIY

You can actually buy 'printable fabric'. It's a thin sheet of cotton stuck to a 8.5x11 piece of paper. You print out whatever you want and then peel the fabric off the backing (I don't know how it's attached but the fabric isn't sticky afterward). I've also seen silk, and I've seen it come in rolls if you want something longer than 11 inches. I've used both in the past (cotton and silk), and the lines come out nice and crisp. I got mine at Jo-anns. Here's the stuff that comes in a roll.

u/cwithay · 2 pointsr/boardgames

I purchased this roll of black felt that covers my dining table whenever we play a game. It's cheap, portable, and makes photography nice if I ever want to take a picture of a pretty game. I've had it for a year and a half now, and it's still holding up just fine.

u/IntergalacticFig · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

No, I just bought this fabric on Amazon, and traced the silhouette of a store-bought tunic I liked onto it. Then I tweaked the neckline, added pockets, and ran it through my sewing machine.

u/JDevinEmbroidery · 2 pointsr/Embroidery

I sent them through a chat, but I’ll resend them this way...
I would get the floss at Johanns, they also sell cute kits. As far as the rest of the supplies I’d go with Amazon because of your time limits. Look for needles by John James in a variety pack sized 5-9, fabric, look for I-Nee cotton, and hoops by Morgan. Amazon also has great light boxes for transferring patterns....

These are great pens for transferring patterns and drawing designs onto fabric

For future reference I get most of my supplies from or
Great fabric can be found off Etsy
Shops I like on Etsy for linen
CloudCraftShop Robert Kaufman Essex Linen Fat Quarter Bundle, Naturals
BidouillArtStock Linen embroidery fabric coupon
FineStitchStudio Embroidery Linen 'Graziano' - Fat quarter

Etsy has good kits,
https:\ has great kits as well. I personally love thread painting. If that’s something you think she’d like to try, go with anything from or any of her books!

u/boothin · 2 pointsr/streetwear

They make printable fabric

This is different from the iron stuff. It's actual fabric.

u/Badatcounting · 2 pointsr/sewing

Maybe this is what you need?
Avery Printable Fabric for Inkjet Printers, 8.5 x 11 Inches, Pack of 5 (03384)

u/sektabox · 2 pointsr/woodworking

The fabric is mostly hidden, except when the door is slid open. But then, fabrics can be had in pretty much any color you want.

I made a somewhat similar thing a while ago and I used linen and Weldbond glue.

u/givealittle · 2 pointsr/knitting

That's great! I recently bought some fabric printer paper like this so that I can print my own labels. You can also buy a fixative to "make your own" printer fabric.

Or you could always support an Etsy seller and have them print them for you, like devilsfoodadvocate said.

u/nrxia · 2 pointsr/mylittlepony

Here's an idea: get crafty! With arts and crafts, that is, where you're only limited by your imagination (and money and time too I suppose...)

Buy a generic back pack and decorate it with pins and patches and iron-ons and dangly doo-hickies all that you can make (or order online) yourself! Seriously, it doesn't take much to get one of those button-makers. It'll come in handy later when your little filly gets a bit older and runs for student council, amiright?

You can buy iron-on stuff at almost any large retailer or hobby/crafts store. Try something compatible with your home printer and see how that works.

Patches are a little bit more complicated but still within reach. You can design your own and have them created by companies over the internet. Most of them offer iron-on backing for a little extra, and it doesn't take much to add a little extra stitching for added security. Most of the time all you need is a vector image and those are easy enough to find. Typically you're limited to a 3" x 3" square. Another catch too is you'll probably have to order a half dozen or so, which is okay too if your daughter has friends to share with.

If you're feeling adventurous, try stencil-making! Buy those little blind-bag toys and attach key ring loops on them. Search the internet for toys and trinkets to hang off of the bag. These are all fun creative learning experiences that you can share together. This is also her back pack and it can be a canvass for self-expression. I haven't met a girl yet that didn't want to express herself. Buy her a good quality pack and it'll last a lot longer than any average plastic Wal-Mart bag. It might not be an official product, but when has that been an issue for this community? If you need help, well, that's what we're here for. She can invest a little bit of herself into making it and maybe she'll care about it all that much more (or maybe I'm just being sickeningly optimistic. It's just a back pack after all...)

If I've learned anything from the DIY Channel, it's that all you need is a hot glue gun and a heaping helping of ambition! Good times. Now get out there and make an awesome back pack and report back with pictures!

u/slackwaredragon · 2 pointsr/ploompax

Ahh, I see. I usually store mine in my bag and not my pocket. I typically go wax if I need more stealthier since the pax can get pretty stinky. I'm lucky to have a good connection in a state without dispensaries.

You may want to try some stick on felt and cut it down to a small slip or two. Try the fit with one and see if it rattles, if so put one more on the other side. That might help.

u/rumpythecat · 2 pointsr/sewing

No problem! This is the muslin I went with:

A few reviews said it came in pieces rather than continuous yardage, but I think they just chose the wrong ordering option. BTW there’s nothing special about muslin per se other than price & availability; old thrift store bedsheets and the like do just as well. And no cotton will give you a sense of the drape of wool or silk - sometimes a cheap synthetic will come closer.

u/Kulty · 2 pointsr/tDCS

I found some gold plated playing cards that might be just the right size!

On a more serious note though, I have been looking at this: ArgenMesh Silver Fabric

59" wide and $18.99 by the foot. I might just get my self some once I run out of aluminum.

u/picklesandrainbows · 1 pointr/lost

We went to a uniform supply store and bought scrubs. Then used some iron on transfers, like this

We also made a few totes that day for each station.

u/RyZeHammoud · 1 pointr/3Drequests

Great stuff!

Headliner fabric could work. It might be a bit too thick from what I’ve seen.

I was thinking along the lines of some microfiber/suede fabric with a thin layer of padding behind it.

Something like this velvet adhesive sheets or this microsuede adhesive sheets on the inside. And maybe cover the ouside with canvas might make it look quite nice.

I would suspect that the shell provides enough protection as it’s quite hard, so just a thin bit of padding on the inside is good.

The top vents and R L buttons only really need to be exposed when the switch is being played (the shell is open). Otherwise when it’s shut and off, it shouldn’t overheat.
I realize with a hinge, opening it and having a lip move out the way might be difficult, but for the fabric version it will work.

What are you thinking for the latch?
I think the original Switch Lite case may use magnets, which I think I could do by hiding it under the fabric. Or creating a kind of fabric/leather strip with one of these magnets attached. could also work.

For the fabric version, would that be easy now that you have this version almost done? Would it just be a matter of tweaking and removing the hinge etc?

Hope this helps! 😊

u/rareandsundry · 1 pointr/Leathercraft

Hi there folks,

  • Leather - Alran Chevre Sully in black and green.
  • Stitching - Sajou Fil au Chinois Lin Cable in Vert (Green) and Souris (Mouse, or a light grey). All 632 at 9SPI with #4 John James needles.
  • Edges - FN2 heat crease, heat burnished edges with beeswax and paraffin.

    So following up on my previous post, A Tale of Two Wallets I was very lucky to have an order from a client that wanted two different BiFold wallets, both in chevre, and both with RFID blocking capability. So this project already had some new challenges but I decided to up the ante:

  • I had to integrate RFID materials into the exterior panel so I needed to back and split that panel...
  • Using the Landis, I was going to create a 1mm lined exterior panel but splitting the chevre to .5mm and backing them to each other.
  • I decided I wanted the interior cash panel to be lined as well and opted to do a french binding. You can see Ian Atkinson do one in his video about different binding methods.

    The end result would be the kind of wallet I had been wanting to make for a very long time: completely lined, distinct features, still classic, and thin.

    The RFID capability was a new one to me. I hadn't had the request before but I had some guidance from a friend who is a private investigator along with some internet help. While it's really unneccesary to have RFID blocking in your wallet unless your credit cards have an RFID chip (which less than 1% of them do and you'd know it if it did) or a passport (which definitely has one), if you must have it you can embed RF or EMF shielding material within the exterior panel. He was quick to tell me that this will prevent most, but not all, RF signals. I chose a material called Argenmesh; it was highly rated and recommended by other blogs and sites.

    So a while ago I got a Landis 30 and I've been slowly getting it tuned in. Needing to have the RF material embedded made it even more necessary this time around. Thankfully the material was thin so I split the chevre down to .5mm, glued the RF fabric in, and then glued the whole panel together. It worked perfectly.

    I should have done a video of doing the french binding and I will in the future but this was my first time doing it and I didn't want to blow it because I was worrying about the camera (I took some pictures this time though). Basically went like this:

  • Measure how much you want to see the binding at the top of the leather.
  • Glue the pieces together grain to grain.
  • Once you glue it down, stitch along the glued edge to attach the panel.
  • Once sewn in, glue on the panel you are going to turn and, using a bone folder or other creasing tool, fold the panel over the edge.
  • Crease along the fold to make sure it's even, and then make sure the fold has good smooth contact.
  • Turn the corner, and then back the leather as normal, smoothing the glue as you go.

    Terrible descriptions, but please watch Ian's video. He does a much better job of explaining it.

    The other complication about the french binding is that the top is 4 times as thick as the usual interior panel so extra careful skiving had to happen. I chose to not stitch all the way to the edge, and then skive everything down to .7mm as usual at the edges.

    The rest of the construction went very smoothly, stitching was a breeze, and, most satisfyingly, the resulting wallet was the thinnest and most luxurious piece I have created yet. #goals

    I did take some videos this time:

  • Finished BiFold in black chevre.
  • Finished BiFold in green and black chevre.
  • Heating edges with the fileteuse
  • Final Buffing.

    Thank you for reading this far. Questions and comments welcome.

what is the fabric requirements for it to be acoustically transparent?

would this work?

u/Xphiar · 1 pointr/fightsticks

What did you use for the bottom? I was looking at something like this for my stick. Velvet (Black) fabric sticky Back, A4 sheet (8.27" x 11.69"), self-adhesive, durable and water resistant, multi-purpose, more than 24 different colors, ideal for art & craft making, 2 sheets

It's basically stick on velvet.

u/geekd · 1 pointr/minipainting


I used printable cotton sheets in my inkjet printer. These, in fact:

I got some images off the internet, and scanned the ones that came with the minis. Then I used white glue to cover the inside, folded them over the flagpole, and made the waves and held them for a few minutes until the glue set a little.

If you use "tacky" glue (basically just thicker white glue) it sets faster.

u/MrMcCay · 1 pointr/cinematography

Muslin is a pretty cheap investment! It can be used to bounce or diffuse light, just like you can with a silk. Muslin soaks up a lot of light so with lower watt lights it may not be as useful. I'll use a kino with muslin clipped to for closer coverage for soft daylight.
