I didn't use a pattern, I just figured one out from looking at this picture:

My roommate had a bad experience eating squid a few weeks ago, and found this incredibly disappointing because squid and other tentacled animals are her favourite.  I decided to make her a stuffed squid for her birthday, and she LOVED it.  Here it is:

I have one horrible picture of it, but I hope to take more before she moves to Thailand next month.

Thanks for looking!

thats so cool i want one i have a few questions first

1. could i use a old tape or a old film and pull it out
2.if i did that would it mess the whole thing up or would that be fine

hey! if you mean the tape from inside of an old video tape, that won't work.  Film is the stuff that is run through a projector at 24 frames a second (which means I have over a second of film around my waist, haha)
I don't think that tape would have any image on it, and it would be too thin.  Try and ask your local movie theatre if they have trailors or extra film lying around.  Try independent theatres, and even film schools.  Also, if you pulled the tape out, it would most likely damage the tape, unless you have some way to splice everything back together.

thanks for all the input!  I'll definitely have to check out book tape and d-rings.

I think the super-8 spool would be too bulky, and probably fall off anyway.
I've been trying to score more film because a few friends have expressed interest in sporting my look.

thanks everyone for looking!!!!

That's what I did with my long strips of film!
Do you think I could possibly steal a trailer or two from you??
I love the look of 35mm film.
It would be even cooler to steal from an Imax theatre!!

"It kind of tore over time...but it was fun to wear for a while. "

There's gotta be a way to make it more durable.  Maybe decoupage it onto a vinyl belt? 

I feel like decoupaging wouldn't work so well with film.  It's kind of brittle slippery surface.
hmm :/

Thanks for the comment guys!!!
as for finding film, I'd check ebay, local movie theatres, film festivals...
(a film can only be used a certain number of times before it gets scratched and grainy, so who knows what famous players/cineplex does with their "spent" films!
happy hunting.

loooooonnnngggggg time lurker and crafter, first time poster.

on the first day of my film class last year our prof passed around a spool of 35mm film from the toronto film festival, so we could see how long 5 minutes of film is.  We were all told to cut off and keep pieces of it.  After much debate, I decided to make a belt out of my piece.

I covered it in this vinyl stuff I bought in mexico, and sewed along the perforations down the side.  I bent a bangle bracelet to act as the closure.

It kind of tore over time...but it was fun to wear for a while. 



**also...if anyone has any ideas for a better closure (other than the ugly bent bangle one I have going on...)  I was thinking of using an old super-8 spool, but I thought that would look too film school nerd.
