Not much crochet going on this week I’m afraid. the weather’s been far too nice :) So instead I dug out my bike and thought about buying a helmet. I found some Sawako Furuno helmets online – flowers and wonderful leopard print!
Two things stopped me from buying that leopard print helmet – firstly no actual shops near here sell them and I’d really want to try it on before buying and secondly there is the huge price tag of over £70 (then delivery on top of that). So the other day I saw just some basic black skate helmets in my local cycle shop and I decided to get one and have a go at painting it. The result is above – I actually had an idea for a much more elaborate design but when I found my paints I realised I only had a couple of colours so this was a trial run until I get more. I think it looks quite good as a first attempt and the paint is acrylic so waterproof but also should hopefully come off quite easily when I want to give it a new look.
