Rey Goggles

Awhile ago I bought these flight goggles off ebay and the kids loved them. Over time the faux leather started to flake. I say lets convert them to a pair of Rey goggles. R1 loved the idea, so I sat down for 3 hours while watching anime and hand stitched them.

I upcycled the goggles below, which is what Rey did, so I felt justified that I was doing the right thing. But these; option one or option two might be more movie accurate, and you know how I feel about being movie acctuate.

First cover it with a thin cotton batting from the fabric store, then with gray wool suiting. I also thought about using gray felt, but I liked the suiting better.


Gently cut the eyes open  not to expose the metal rims like I did. So simple and easy. They just need to be a bit more sand worn.
