    I DIY as much as I can, sometimes it gets real shitty but other times the results are great. Since we're all comrades here and not everyone should have to invent the wheel before they can steal a bike, I thaught: let's just share our best DIY ideas!

    I'll just start with something I did today. Take a small plastic bottle with a screw cap. Pour some paint in it, for example china ink if you happen to have some to spare or acrylic paint that you stir out with water. Take a piece of soft cloth, roll it together and put a small rubber band around it. Push the cloth into the opening of the bottle so that a little bit of it is above the opening. Tada! You now have a squeezer! Put the cap on, turn it upside-down so the paint soaks the cloth, and you are ready to go squeezer-bombing! Have fun! :thumbsup:

    I took a weaving class and I'm considering buying myself a small loom. I love weaving and think it's about as DIY as clothes can get.The thing that frustrates me about a lot of DIY people is that they've forgotten entirely about the original do it yourself clothing like a nice wool sweater, and moved on to the "cooler" looking stuff like bum flaps q:
    Whatever happened to a good knitting session? :)

    It's essentially a back patch looped into your belt that goes over your ass. Its supposed to give you that "I sit in public places begging for liquor money all day" look thats really popular right now.

    Its a piece of material usually decorated with a bands graphic thats either safety pinned or attached to some sort of belt material and it hangs off the rear end of a punks pants like a native Americans "bum flap"

    Oh, I feel so enlightened now! Have seen those but not really wanted to ask anyone why in the world they had a piece of cloth on their ass.
    For everyone that wants one of those yet be a bit more vintage-DIY and less fashiony, I say: knit one! :thumbsup:

    I'm doing up a Pink&Black flag...using the right spray paint for the job too but should I sow the bit that wraps around the round makeshift flagpole or staple it?

    I'd go with sawing it.
    I've bought some fabric to saw a red and black flag but haven't started yet, not sure about how big I should make it. The fabric is 110 centimeters wide, thinking that could be the hight, but how long should it be to look good proportionally? Trying to figure out how the golden mean works, cos that should be applieable. But it seems a bit over the top, too.
    How big is yours?

    Ahh a bum flap has mulitple uses: you can use it as a towel for you hands or to wipe up spilled drinks, also can be used as a napkin, covers you ass when you split your pants, sew in an inside pocket and use it for shop lifting (cock flaps are actually better for that)... oh and don't forget it can also be used for toilet paper when the need arises (I recommend washing it if you actually try that ;)

    I know right! :p Funnily enough is I have actually used mine for many of those things.... my bum flap is pink and black leopard print with an old t-shirt sewn to it and I have it tied to a homemade bondage belt (which can be great for attaching stuff to), and I always wore it with my pair of shorts that tended to lose their ass constantly, and I had to start wearing a cock-flap since the front of the pants kinda wore out too, and I accidently exposed my self during a show... kinda nice having the extra protection in front in back ;) (though that is how I met my girlfriend at a show!)

    I was down at a market in Galway in Ireland its a great little market pretty hippy type spot. I seen these wallets that were being sold for around 10 quid but they were made out of rubber from the tubing of bike and car tyres and sewn together. I thought it was a great idea hence me getting a christmas present from my girlfriend of it haha but ya its really cool and durable and great idea.

    Actually it was kinda funny, my wife (at the time) and I were both talking her into taking her shirt off... and her and I ended up spending the night together... while my (now ex) wife was passed out drunk. It was a crazy night. But yeah, I try to keep the front covered now. Sometimes a person meets their future best friend/lover in the weirdest of ways.
