Make Your Own Fabulous Mask

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 »

Felt Fox Mask for Tiny Foxes

Louise from the craft blog, I’m Feelin’ Crafty, made a tutorial for this uber adorable fox mask for her son and his pack of animal pals. Now they’re ready for a wild game of Mr. Fox. She says, “Watch out for foxes lurking about the house…. They’re sly ya know!” We love her use of top-stitching to accentuate the fox facial markings…and of course Britex Fabrics has plenty of felt on our 4th floor.
