it seemed like a good idea at the time

I believe I have mentioned before the 50-pound polarfleece remnant sack I purchased from Malden Mills. I became delirious thinking about this giant stash of fur, so I ordered it. It is so large and heavy that it practically needs its own shed. Today I broke into it in order to sew Peter a pair of heavyweight fur pants. Warning: Do not try this at home. Children under 17 should not attempt to extract fur from the stash without supervision.

    Gasp! Mariko, I’d say you’ve been fleeced!

    I don’t have much sewing experience (just a few quilted wall hangings). Are there any good books or online resources you recommend for sewing polar fleece?

    … – when I first read your post I was impressed with your purchase, but I gotta tell ya, I can’t stop thinking about those fur pants! 😉

    I thought I read about a woman who had been mauled by a bag of fleece. It was you!

    Is that fleece in *”eggplant”*?? 🙂

    50 pounds?!?! Girl, you are crazy. In a nice way. But still….crazy. 😉
    Melissa, IMHO the best way to sew polar fleece is on a serger. I’ve found it pretty easy to work with.

    Yikes, you could make outfits for all the Van Traps! You could start selling some of that on ebay if you think you’ll never ever ever get through it all…

    Gawp. I think there’s a penal code against that, somewhere. I’ll look it up.
    That’s the funniest pic I’ve seen in a long time.

    I can’t stop laughing, that’s so funny. And then I think of all the insane web searches that are going to bring people to Super Eggplant and I start laughing all over again.
    But I was just at Rachael’s blog and I wanted to come over and give you a big hug for helping the little mama out. You are awesome.
    Fur pants. Sparkle scarf. Platform shoes? Give up the funk.

    I’m sitting in the middle of a crowded newsroom with others who are furiously writing the afternoon block of news shows for today. I, of course, am waiting for a photo assignment, not slacking…
    All of a sudden, I click on SEgg, see you lying under a tonOfleece, which brings up a deep abdominal primival SNORT of the hugest proportion. This brings at least 5 writers to a stand-still.
    If looks could kill I’d be dead 5 times over but I can’t stop laughing so I guess I’ll slink back to my camera and do some real work.

    OK, now I want to see the fur pants! Please?? To where exactly will your man be wearing these?
