YKYACW you're more likely to ask someone "did you make that" than "where did you get that" when they have something awesome.

I do that all the time!  Most common response is an "Are you kidding me?" look.

Yeah, or the look of shame, "no, I bought it."

I got all mushy and misty just like everyone else, but I just want to pretend like I'm too tough, brush is off and say "whateverjames".   Wink

Awwwwww, thank you for going to all that trouble!  That's super sweet of you.  I didn't see it until today (Friday-after), but I will tell you that I (almost) followed your original pattern, but with a double layer of fabric, sewn together, turned inside, etc.  I'm normally someone who thoroughly reads pretty much all directions before even starting a project, but this time I didn't and so the fold-over brim kind was kind of wonky on mine and well, since I didn't actually measure or anything - well, it was all a bit wonky.  However, it certainly did the trick and "made the outfit" according to some so THANKS again for the tut and  all your support.  When I get pics I might post them in the Thanksgiving forum.  If so, I'll put a link here and in it, because lady, you deserve some credit for sure.

Hope your holiday was fun and yummy!

I'm really surprised at how difficult of a time people are having finding Fels-Naptha and washing soda I've seen one or both of them in just about every supermarket (and not just the natural-food ones) around.  I haven't hit the fancier ones, but the cheap and the mid-range have these things.  Maybe it's because I live in the Pacific Northwest where a lot of people are "greenies"?

Wah, I'm on a fabric diet! Another set of your potholders, on a fabric-empty stomach, that's just too much Smiley Man, these guys are campy Smiley They'd be so much fun to have on my kitchen. It was a good decision of you to show these guys separately, every one of them looks so much better that way.

"Campy" hahahaha!  Indeed they are.  And thank you for the support on showing them separately - I think they deserve to have the spotlight each to themselves... I mean, they work hard (on their abs).

It's made by Jacquard, they claim it's washable and I washed on item that was only black ink in a front-loader and it came out just a bit faded, but not much.  I don't know about light.  I haven't noticed an issue in indoor, ambient light, but UV might fade it (like most things).  If you PM me, I'll look at the package and give you more info later when I have some more time.

Oh! I visited your hat shop and wow! You've some nice things there!  I added you to my favorites, so hopefully someone will notice.  (Hear that, Santa?)

I've a lot of bleached muslin that I thought I might just use fusible interfacing on to stiffen it, since I don't have any other paper other than wrapping paper.  Starch might be a more economical option, though.  I'll mull it over while I do other preparations and see what I feel like.  I still have to make my pom poms - for which I'm using a $1 plastic table cloth left over from something else.  Black, of course.   Wink

It should be a lot of fun tomorrow and I'm looking forward to it - which is not usually the case for Thanksgiving for me.  It's not my favorite holiday.  Thanks for all your help and have a great holiday!  Please share pics of the kids working on and wearing their outfits!

MissT - the odds and ends can be used for quilts. Some ppl on Craftster are making postage stamp quilts which uses squares as small as 1.5". You could provide them scraps in swaps.
If I only had a bigger house and a bigger wallet... That link has some really fun fabrics.
That's a great idea for the scraps!  After the holidays I might just have it together to gather all that up and see if I can't work a swap with someone.
It sells out fast at my local fabric shops, but when I do find it they're usually having a sale or I have a coupon.  Wink

These are fantastic!

Where did you get the scorch-proof fabric for the backing?!?

I have seen the outdoor men and firemen fabric on ebay here - for everyone else who wants some too!

There are cowboys too!

Can we see a close-up of one of the labels?  I notice there's a little label on each one...

I got it at the fabric store over by the interfacing that's on bolts.  It comes on a roll.  There is also stuff called Insul-brite that is similar, but not exactly the same (at least from what I could see) that is sold in packages in the same area. It's also called ironing board cover material and similar.

I have gotten some of my fabric from that ebay seller and it's always been very fast and trouble free.  I've made cowboys, firemen, construction workers and these as well as some with some retro-style girl pin-ups  called "The Great Outdoors".  So fun!

My shop posting has a close up of the label that I made using facric that you can print on with an inkjet printer.
