I was thinking I'd just put up a linoleum pattern, because I don't have much to say, my brain having turned to oatmeal after spending a day waiting on clueless idiots in the fabric store where I work. But I do have something to say. If you want to make your own Halloween costume, then freaking LEARN TO SEW! Don't you people watch Project Runway?!! Sewing is cool- even for guys! You can do many wonderful things with a hot glue gun- making a ball gown is not among them.
Of course, if you actually KNEW how to sew, then you would also know that three days before Halloween is NOT enough time to make an elaborate costume! Or were you fooled by watching too much Project Runway? Those people are professionals- of course they can make something in a day.
The linoleum (okay, technically it's felt-base, not linoleum. Don't know the difference? Then buy my Linoleum book!) is a 1948 Congoleum rug.
