Jessica Floeh has been developing Hanky Pancreas, an empowering fashion line designed around insulin pumps (for type 1 diabetics). She made a tutorial to get you started on your own:

This tutorial will show you how to make a simple piece inspired by my transformative fashion collection, Hanky Pancreas . The current collection is for women and represents a series of design solutions that better integrate the machine with the body and mind. By turning medical device into fashion accessory the designs intend to alleviate anxiety, create dynamic communities, and encourage new relationships with medical technology.

We spend so much time personalizing our opt-in gadgets like phones and mp3 players, but I love that Jessica is empowering diabetics to feel positive personal expression with a life-saving medical device, too. Cyborgs rule! Jessica is currently looking for investors to jump-start this project as a company.
