Our customers have created some amazing projects using our fabric. We are humbled to be included in such wonderful pieces. Below are a few of our favorites!
Mermaid Costume
Stephanie S. writes, "I love costumes and Halloween, so last year I decided to finally make my dream costume - a mermaid tail! I was so happy to find your sparkle tinsel! I needed something super stretchy for my tail that had a metallic look. The texture hid the threads from the hundreds of teardrop-shaped sequins I sewed on, and it really looked like scales when it was all put together. I loved the turquoise color - it was different from the standard green, but still looked very aquatic. It took me a couple of months to complete my costume, due to all the hand sewing of seashells, pearls, and sequins. But it was worth it! I won first place (and $250) in a Halloween costume contest! I'm not sure how I'll top it, but I'm sure I'll order my fabrics from Distinctive Fabric again!" She used 2 yards of sparkle tinsel.

Leonard C. of Clayton, NJ used various colors of wave velveteen for these amazing costumes. "It took between 90-100 yards of black velveteen, 80 yards of blue wave, 30 yards of the suede, 100 yards of Green wave. These were a few of the costumes made for the Philadelphia Mummer's Parade. It took about 3 months to make 60 costumes."

Cruella Deville
Chris writes, "My daughter was so excited when I made this Cruella Deville outfit for her for Halloween. Both of the fabrics were wonderful! The dalmation fur looked like fur and was very soft, the velour was luxuriously soft. Everyone was impressed on how well the outfit looked, but by far it made my little girl very happy." She used 1 yard each of dalmation faux fur and red velour.

Lisa sewed this adorable costume using chocolate cow faux fur and brown suede. She writes, "This fabric was hard to find, but you had it! Suprised on how easy it was to work with. We received a lot of compliments on his costume!"

Golden Eye
Alexandra C. used twelve yards of gold liquid lame to construct "a long duster coat for a contestant in the Miss Iowa Pagent. The duster coat was my own design and was made to be worn over an evening gown that I designed. The contestant removed the coat by pulling on a tassel made of gold rayon chainette fringe, gold bugle bead fringe and jouquel rhinestones to reveal the evening gown that was underneath."

Sam F. of Kenmore, NY makes a jolly santa indeed. He trimmed the costume using one yard of our snow white long-hair faux fur. He says, "The fur made my Santa suit look so nice. Many of my clients expressed how beautiful Santa looked."

It arrived very fast and your company was great to deal with."
