Alright /diy/nosaurs. Ive been asked by my boyfriend to make one of these hats. He bought one before but was dissapointed with the quality, even at the $500 price tag. The front of the hat was nice and bright colored fur with beautiful gaurd hairs, but the back lacked gaurd hairs and was color-bland.
Another complaint was the feel of the pelt in the hat. Even at furriers in NY when we visited, the hats they had were all tanned or produced to keep their shape. The garment tanned pelts I bought are much more supple and flexible, and I suspect they'll produce a much softer hat.
I've got experience working with leather, and I also have experience with sewing fabrics. Im not worried about the logistics or manufacturing.
The difficulty im having however is finding patterns.
Because he wants it to be big and full I've bought two pelts to ensure that there's plenty of rich colorful full fur.
Ive done quite a bit of googling but patterns are hard to come by. I searched through all the patterns at the fabric stores. Ive found patterns for trapper hats but not for fur or in the same style as pic related. They're usually for making a trapper hat like the $14.99 ones at k-mart.
Anyways wondering if anyone has made one of these or knows of where to get patterns.

Greetings /diy/, Sydney AU fag here.
Having successfully cultivated a bed of lion ants, I wish to plant something a little less carnivorous, and come to you asking what to plant. This spot basically gets no direct sunlight (south facing) and has been a wasteland for as long as we have lived here. We would like to grow something colourful to fill the bed, or perhaps a flowering shrub up to the level of the bricks. I am open to any landscape suggestions though; the greenest my thumb has ever been was growing pot when I was a kid, but even then, its a weed, so that's like being proud of setting fire to petrol.
CAD on Linux

Sup /diy/, would ask the /g/entoomen on this but I suspect this one could descend into a shill war, and I know there's plenty of CAD heads here.
> TL;DR, how to migrate a SketchUp workflow to Linux, or a SketchUp equivalent for Linux.
For reasons I'm sure you could prolly guess i'm biting the bullet and moving away from Windows, I have been fiddling with Mint on a spare laptop and am pretty damn impressed with it.
My single tie to Windows at this point is SketchUp. I have close to 2GB of projects, but it does not appear there is a native Linux port for SketchUp, and running CAD in a VM hosted Windows install seems like a great way to generate rage and drama while not getting anything done. I know fuck all about CAD and some rudimentary searches for conversion tools show nothing; I don't even know if ts possible to export .skp's to another program.

> If neither of the above are options, is there anything else I can do that will prevent me having to recreate 40-odd, fairly mechanically complex projects like pic related in a new CAD program?
Any suggestions on FOSS CAD programs would be appreciated as well. I'm kinda dense when it comes to CAD, fuck all experience apart from SU, I'm ok with a learning curve as long as it does not involve me needing to learn calculus.
Thanks for reading guys.
