I'm going to be posting a tutorial next week on how to make "feathers" out of faux fur! It's great for making giant feathers that don't exist in nature.
Until then, I've been cleaning out my fabric closet and found an abundance of perfectly nice fabric that I'm not using, and won't be any time soon, so I'm selling it in the hopes that the cosplay and crafting community at large can make use of it. I've decided to post it here to see if anyone is interested!
There's a wide variety of stuff here. Some of it was purchased and I simply never ended up using it; some of it is leftover from a project.
Below is a list of everything I have. I'm starting out with a list with photos. I'll indicate if they're off the bolt (OTB), or remnants (REM) from a project (in which case it will have one or more not straight/clean edges). I'm working on measuring each piece, but there are a lot of pieces, so it will take me a while. I will update as I go.
I also have small and large scraps of various fabrics which I can sell for $1 per gallon-sized ziploc bag full. This would be useful for if you need little pieces, or if you do crafts that need even smaller scraps of fabric. The scraps are mostly cotton blends.
Everything comes from a smoke- and pet-free home.
If you're interested or have any questions, email me at email@example.com. If you're interested in a fabric that doesn't have a posted measurement, let me know, and I'll measure it asap and let you know. I'm also willing to haggle, especially if you're purchasing multiple items. My main goal is to free up space, so I'll try to work with you! I think you'll find the prices to be pretty reasonable, though.
For long cuts, I will be happy to cut you a smaller length, but nothing smaller than one yard, please. If the entire piece I have is 1.5 yards, for example, I will only sell the piece in its entirety. If it's 3 yards, I'll sell a piece that's 1 or 2 yards.
Buyer pays for shipping of items. I will ship using whatever method you'd like and will combine multiple items into one box to make the shipping as inexpensive as possible.
As a final note, I didn't have a lot of control over the way the colours turned out in the photos. I tried to describe the colours as best I can, as the pictures may not be exactly accurate. Feel free to ask if you're unsure of a particular fabric.
Any other questions, let me know. :3 Happy browsing!
