Question A Riddle

Okay...

I have 4 yards of black felt....

....5 yards of white felt...

and 2 or 3 yards purple satin...

does anyone have any ideas that could help me out?

I've fried my brain on finals, and now I can't think of any costumes that have that kind of combination, or just 2 of the three, or maybe another kind of fabric with it.

Any ideas/pic would be welcomed, and the character can be anyone, male, female, video game, anime, j-pop/rock. I'm really desperate to make something over this winter break, but dirt poor.

Thanks fer the help!

I use my felt to make patterns....You know how patterns come on that tissue stuff? Personally, I can't refold that stuff to save my life. Plus it tears super easily. So I translate the pattern from the tissue onto felt peices. That way they are sturdy and I can mark on them, roll them up, pin them together, color code them... I suggest you use your felt for that... I can't think of any costume that requires felt o-o

LOL, great idea Rinnie

My Lulu costume was actually made almost entirely out of felt. The skirt, the sleves, and the backing for the bodice thing, all made out of felt. I miscalculated how much I needed for the dress, and I ended up with said large amounts of black felt. But using the felt for patterns is a good idea, I never thought of that. Much longer lasting then the tissue stuffs.
