We cannot count the number of shockingly awesome costumes in past years’ contests. This pair for example, bacon & egg, still has us chuckling because, yes, the egg is standing on slender slices of butter and was soon to be a mom. A few years ago this same duo did a rice & potato number. See below for complete contest details and how you can win a $100 Britex gift certificate. Click here to read more »
We just couldn’t help it. A photo shoot was surely bound to happen since we just haven’t been able to keep our hands off the samples Natalie made for the Mask-Making workshop this Saturday. Natalie is the manager and buyer for the Notions Department, and is also an avid seamstress, specializing in hand-crafted reproductions of historical costumes and accessories ranging from the Renaissance to the Roaring ‘20s. For several years we’ve all had the pleasure of seeing her amazing costumes—often winning the annual Costume Contest—but learning from her is a rare opportunity. Follow her sewing adventures on her blog Frolicking Frocks, and of course, join us on 10/25! Click here to read more »
Halloween is a big deal at Britex! That’s why we’re supplying you with so much more than just materials this year. The mask-making workshops on October 25 are guaranteed to inspire and transform. A mask is perfect for those that want to keep it simple, but still want to play. It can also be an impressive finishing touch on an already elaborate costume. The workshops are back-to-back on Saturday morning starting at 10:30 and 11:30 and the cost is $15 per person. Get the details and register HERE.

In remembrance of the marvelous Mister Maurice Sendak, here is a tutorial from Jessyratfink for a “Where the Wild Things Are” hat (including the all-important whiskers.) Max’s growlishly wild hat can be made by following her 16 step directions….pattern included! As Max would say, “Let the wild rumpus start!”
