    October 3, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    Since Halloween is just around the corner, here is some creative Halloween inspiration for you. Our customer Bobby Brumback from Willits California created these two fabulous Halloween costumes. He has been creating original costumes for theatrical productions and holidays for about 10 years. He created the "David Bowie" costume with an awesome psychedelic polyester print fabrics and then he added gold lame accents. For his "Soul Stealer" costume, he used 9 yards of muslin that he hand dyed and hand sewed the cording. He purchased cheap masks and molded them to the fabric and sewed them onto the robe.

We carry single-faced velvet ribbon, double-faced velvet ribbon, and stretch velvet ribbon.Velvet ribbon is wonderful for many uses, including hair ornamentation, gown sashes, decorative bows, and gift wrap.

  • NEW Liberty of London Prints!

    September 29, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    We’re pleased to present three new Liberty of London luxurious cotton lawns in our store. Liberty of London is a distinguished English designer, producing fine cottons since 1875. The first is a fabulous East Meets West, featuring mystical dragons, camels, suns, and phases of the moon. The second is Strawberry Thief, which features blue birds and mini strawberries, and the third is Tree of Eden, which features brightly colored flowers. Liberty cottons are durable, and nearly wrinkle-free when taken directly from the dryer. This fabric makes delicious pajamas, dandy tailored shirts, dapper bow ties, and is a joy for hand-smocking. 54" wide. 100% cotton. Imported from England. Someone told us that you could finger-press Liberty lawn to remove wrinkles, and to our surprise we discovered that they were correct. Liberty is incredibly drapable, long-lasting, and luxurious. These amazing cotton fabrics are available in our brick-and-mortar store or through our online customized swatch service. Call 415-392-2910 now and ask for the second floor cotton department to order. These are only a few of many new prints we now have in stock! All Liberty cotton prints are $45 / yard and 54" wide.

  • Make a Tutu Peacock Costume

    September 21, 2016 by Britex Fabrics


    This peacock tutu is so adorable that it bears a repeat! It is looking like an avian All Hallows Eve! Shauna from the creative blog, Shwin&Shwin made up a tutorial on how she created a tutu-esque peacock costume for her daughter from some knit fabric for the top, and poufy netting and felt for the tail…..and a generous dollop of talent. It would be super lovely with some sparkly sequins added to the feather eyes!  We love the way the tail bellows out, and her attention to peacock feather detail and coloring. All materials are available at Britex Fabrics; craft felt and sparklies are found on our 3rd floor!
