This blog contains fabric, things constructed out of fabric, and the ultimate fabric item costumes. This includes favorite costumes from movies/TV, costumes at renfaire, Halloween etc., stuff I've made, and from time to time a rant random comment or the all encompassing "other".
Lately the "other" has been taking over so be warned.

Coming soon to AnthroEstranged: Ceramic faces magnets and comic book scene/character magnets.
The faces you see above are a few ceramic disks I made in Jr. High.  That’s right I made emoticons in the 90’s.  I just didn’t know they were emoticons.  I stumbled upon these when I went through some old craft projects.  The fella made a suggestion that I should turn these into magnets and that is exactly what I did.  Now I just have to take some good photos and upload them on to Etsy.  If your interested check my etsy site AnthroEstranged in a week or so.
Not depicted is another project for Etsy.  The fella has given me a few comic books, the ones that were worthless and had not sentimental value.  I attacked them with a pair of scissors and am turning panels and cutouts of individual characters into magnets as well.

All I can think of right now is the waiting room scene from Beetlejuice. I guess that’s what happens at the DMV.

Sewing Tutorial: How to Hand Slip Stitch
I’ve posted a new sewing tutorial showing you how to hand slipstitch an opening closed with no trace of stitches showing.  A fundamental hand sewing stitch, this one is handy to know, even if you aren’t a sewer.  Any time you get a rip in your shirt or pants, a seam comes loose on your couch, or there’s an opening in any type of fabric, use this neat stitch to invisibly sew the gap up.  
Continue on to the full tutorial….

Sometimes when I have a bad day I don’t want to sleep because tomorrow could be worse. Then again if I go to sleep the bad day will be over and tomorrow could be awesome.
