I Will Never Work With This Fabric Again!!! LOL


x
Bet ya thought I was talking about some quilting fabric, no, the grand babies needed their costumes before Saturday, due to a party they are going to. I will say it again, "I will never work with this fabric again..." You can't iron it without putting a towel over it, because it has sparkles that stick to all things hot and you talk about slippery. I will find another source for the future costumes. I have made many, but tried this fabric for these.

It was funny the first time the oldest saw her mermaid pattern. Her face told it all to me. She wanted to be a mermaid like Ariel. When she saw her feet was not going in the tail it kinda upset her. Mimi, I really wish my feet could go down in the tail. The end of the tail is wrapped around her wrist. I told her she couldn't walk, she would have to swim to her party. After she tried it on for the fitting, she was happy. I'll try to post pictures of them.

One look at those grandbabies and You won't mind the work so much! By the way it looks... Grandma likes to spoil them real good!
They'll be the bells of the ball for sure.

The costumes are the cutest. So much work! I know just what you are saying about the fabric. My daughter Kelsie is a senior in high school and they are having a senior Halloween party. She is going as Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I used the same slippery yellow fabric. I've never used so many pins in my life...and ran over them to boot!!

Have a wonderful day!

Hello Bonnie, the costumes are beautiful and what little girl would not love them.....I know what you mean...I am not fond of working with the slippery fabrics...Regards Lyn

I knew as soon as I scrolled down to those photos of the costumes that the fabric must be super slippery and you confirmed it. What a battle it must have been to sew. I bet the girls are so cute in the costumes though.

I made a mermaid costume for my daughter when she was in 1st grade. I wish I still had it. So does she. Same fabric.
