Quite a few have asked me how I made my Steampunk goggles, so instead of having to repeat myself I decided to make a tutorial =)

This way of making a pair of goggles is perfect if you're on a tight budget, as you've probably got all you need in your house already ^_^

For a better picture of the finished goggles look here [link]

This is great! I'm collecting tutorials on these XD Planning to make some at some point.

Just one thing, do you have a template for the pieces of leather which make the eyepieces? How do you work out how they should fit?

I've found myself hoarding Nesquick bottle caps just to use them for making goggles. They're the PERFECT size~!

:D Thank you very much~!

I do have a question, though. Where did you get your leather? I'm having a bit of trouble finding some at a reasonable price.

i found some fake leather (fairly {actually, very} thin) for £6.49 per metre in Hobbycraft ^^ it looks nice, but may need some other fabric underneath to line it, for more stability

I would also recommend putting some kind of protectant liner on the edge of the lenses, just in case...

Very cool! One question: how did you cut out the middle of the bottle caps? I broke the entire cap trying scissors and other materials I found.
