In work we all have these ugly headsets and a lot of people have customised ‘knickers’ which are the earpiece covers. One new girl turned up with an amazing ‘Sully’ from Monsters Inc headset cover and told us how at her last base a girl was making all sorts of themed covers for her colleagues for a token cost for the fabrics. I thought I’d have a go to see how expensive and quick they were to make. This was the first and I did a lot of experimenting to get the right sizes, stretchiness for the ‘knickers’, shape and attaching of the ears and horns and the positions of the poppers that close the headpiece around the top of the headset. All in all it took me around 3 hours but I think I could get it to two 🙂
