Yesterday me and my friend Amber went to the fabric store. Not just any fabric store... THE fabric store. This store, called SAS, in Tempe, AZ is like a warehouse of fabric, ribbon, and any little doodads you could possibly want for a sewing project. For cheaper than other stores.
Here is where we go when we want to make costumes.
I hadn't planned on going to the Renaissance Festival this year.
I won't waste my time in telling you how much I wish I was still carrying out my original plans.
Too late. Already told you.
But the Renaissance Festival is coming up. And since I don't have any other plans, I'm going to go.
Yes, I'm one of "those" people. Those people who like to dress up and walk around a fake marketplace with a fake accent and play princess for a day. Call it crazy, call it getting in touch with my inner child, call it whatever you want.
I just call it FUN. Here's a post of last year's Renaissance Festival.
So anyway, me and the lovely Amber went to buy fabric for this year's costumes (cuz you can't wear last years... it's like the Oscars. You have to have a different dress! Plus I have the time to sew a new one. I need a project.)
Here's some highlights:
Amber with the many, many bolts of satin fabric for only 2.99/yard.
Here's the fabric I chose. A lovely sea green with BEAUTIFUL accent fabric.
Amber got an absolutely gorgeous and very regal color of purple.
After SAS, we went for our traditional slice of pizza from Slices at Tempe Market Place. The giant salad you see in our hands is actually the chicken caesar pizza. Oh. my. yumminess.
MMMM!!! Love this pizza.
Fun day. Can't wait to show you the finished product of our costumes!
