Ghillie scales cowl

Second in a series of posts about FabLab Tacoma!

Given the experience laser cutting Turing patterns into fabric, I wanted to see if I could create something even more complex by layering cut fabric. My fiance's brother joked that I was essentially talking about making a Ghillie suit, which I had never heard of. But he was right!

 Much like the Turing pattern, this design began with an Inkscape file. After laser cutting (which cauterized and sealed the edges of this polyester fabric), I simple sewed the strips together into a tube that opens at the shoulders and tapers to a point in the front and back, and then lined it with an old t-shirt.

More FabLab posts forthcoming!
