    bag-1-instructables

    There are so many different grocery bag tutorials online, but this one by in sewing on Instructables is a fairly easy 13 step process. You can use an already existing bag as a pattern. Just cut off the seams at the top of the handles and the bottom seam. Then cut up each side so you have a pattern to use that looks not unlike a tank top shirt. Be sure to use two distinct different types of fabric to distinguish between the outside and the inside of the bag. We suggest cotton since it can be thrown in with your laundry. You can ready more here.

  • Anastasia - League of Legends Costume (We Love Our Customers)

    November 14, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    "My name is Anastasia Uhland.  I am in the 9th grade at Monte Vista High School in Danville CA.  I learned how to sew in my 7th grade clothing class.  Last month I had a great time visiting  Britex Fabrics.  It was fun to climb the stairs and explore all the levels in the store.  I enjoyed talking with the lady who helped us select our fabrics.  We found some in the bargain area that were prefect!  The fabrics were pink and purple, polyester.   I had created the pattern to fit myself and wore the costume to school on Halloween.  The character is from the video game, League of Legends.  I can't wait to visit the store again soon!"
