4 Awesome Ideas For Roller Skating Crafts
Put A Twist To Your T-Shirts
Here are 4 amazing t-shirt transformation ideas you can perform on all of your extra shirts.
- Turn your t-shirt into a tank top with this quick tutorial. It’s a great fit for the beach and derby practice.
- Show your back off with the braided t-shirt tutorial.
- Keep cozy in the winter months with a t-shirt scarf. Just grab two shirts and the sewing kit.
- The most complicated t-shirt project is the rib cage shirt. It’s a cute design to rock on the track and your hard work will be reflected in your style.
Sew/Crochet Your Helmet Covers
Roller derby players have a lot of baggage to carry around. From skate tools, helmets and pads to make-up kits and roller skates, tote bags always come in hand. Ask around your derby squad for extra helmet covers to use to crochet an accessory bag for all your gear. If you feel extra crafty you can even design some leg warmers.
Hang Some Wheels From The Rear-view Mirror
Since hanging fuzzy dice from the rear view isn’t so popular these days, why not bring back the concept with some colorful skate wheels. Did you know theory has it that U.S pilots in WWII used dice in their cockpits for good luck, and they continued to hang them in cars when they came home from war. All you need is a shoelace and a pair wheels.
First remove the bearings (because we’ll use those for our next project) and then wrap both ends of the lace around a wheel. Once you have both wheels on each end of the lace it’s time to toss them around the mirror…but not if you live in Minnesota where hanging things from the mirror is prohibited.
Turn Your Bearings Into A Silver Necklace
This looks best around a silver beaded ball necklace but a roller skate lace will do the trick. Take your most shiny bearing and thread the necklace through it. We cannot claim this will bring good luck to your derby bouts or improve your skating ability but it will look pretty!
