Free Helmet Bag Pattern

So, I wanted to create a custom star wars themed helmet bag for my Legacy TK, and I wanted to use this custom fabric (Sugar Wars) from Knitorious Fabric. Both meant coming up with a pattern.

Note: I left the upper half of mine black so I could add patches. In my pattern I made the sides a print but if you want to add patches, switch print with plain. Use print for zipper panel and plain on sides.

As luck would have it a friend was working on a helmet bag and I got to see how it all fitted together. So I made my own pattern! And when I wanted to make a second one, I made a crappy set of instructions to go with it. I've made three so far and plan to make one for all my helmets.

It's all measuring fabric, no printing of pages, and the directions are lame but you get the idea of how it all goes together. I just turned them into jpgs and you can click on them to get full size version, download and print. 

Enjoy, kinda, is still a lot of work. Project took a few hours, three because I have little kids so I am not sure of real-time for this.

I recommend the medium size for larger helmets like regular TK and stuff. The small fits my Legacy Era TK and my Poe Dameron helmet really nicely. I suggest making it out of old fabric to test it out first. It can be upsized easily.

The base/sides panel can be customized, just sew them together in whatever combo you want and make sure ending pieces fits dimensions listed. Obviously I split a side panel into black/print for the one above so I could put patches on.

30 inches of fabric or around a yard of one color
Optional 2 color scheme: 15 inches each of two colors
1 yard fabric for liner (optional)
1 - 18 inch purse zipper
Matching thread
Extra wide double layer binding (optional)
24 inches matching webbing for handles
Scissors/pins/sewing stuff

Directional fabric: May need to compare fabric to layout and get right amount.
