    Caught it! Whew!

    My daughter will be 16 tomorrow and I taught her to sew about 5 or so years ago. She's really into cosplay and goes to several conventions a year. She's made a LOT of costumes. Luckily she has a part time job to support her "habit". Frankly, her costumes are far better than any I could make.

    Anyway, she started making a new cosplay... Connor from Assassin's Creed. I had just learned about the crayola washable markers for quilting and my daughter started using those to mark her fabric. I didn't think anything of it until I saw she had ironed the hood piece and I saw it still had marker on the fabric. (!!!) A good soaking, Shout, and wash later, the marker came out thank goodness! It didn't occur to me that she would start using what I had been. Of course she didn't know to test the fabric first to make sure the marker would come out and to NOT apply heat because it could set the ink. Luckily no harm was done. It's a good thing because the outfit is made of heavy linen and it's uber expensive!

    Wow, how gratifying to have your daughter follow your footsteps and then stride on past! Would love to see a picture of her work.

    My oldest daughter is into that Cosplay world..lol
    She attends Akon every so often and she too makes all her own costumes.
    She scours thrift stores for all the props too.

    "Costume Play". Think Sci-Fi conventions only with Japanese Anime.

    I have one of those "kindred spirits" as well LOL My 20 year old college student has been into cosplay/ anime since middle school. She got a sewing machine for Christmas two years ago because she started making her own costumes in High School.
