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.

It’s always so frustrating when I can’t find some of my sewing stuff.  Currently I’m on the quest to find the elusive missing spool of brown thread.  I fear it may be lost forever.

Intensive weed pulling + cardio work out= ouch

Once again I have a limited attention span for projects. I keep flipping between three sewing projects, house work, and just roaming my house.

I want to sit and focus but no something distracts me and it’s time to move on.

So in this post, I listed some of my favorite tips and tricks. Since writing, I’ve gotten some questions that I’ll try to address here.

A friend of mine told me of this wonderful sale.  The NYC Opera closed and some of the props, costumes and supplies were taken to the Mid-Atlantic Furniture Co. here in Philadelphia.  This weekend they had a sale.  All those lovely props, fabrics, and costumes for great prices.  The picture above is our haul.  I got 10 yards of muslin, that lovely red fabric and 90 some odd yards of black ribbon.  The fella picked up a prop flintlock to add to his renfaire costume.
Muslin is always good and was a good deal.  The ribbon was an even better deal nearly 90 yards and it was only $2.  I think I’m going to make a bolero or a reni bodice.
