I popped into the fabric shop the other day to pick up some black cotton to make a hooded cloak for my son for Carnival.  I left the store with a slippery satin-y mulitcolored nightmare of a material.  The lady assured me it was a material that is “facilissimo” to work with (she actually said it was probably the easiest material to sew with).  Call me dumb to have believed her.  Call her evil to have said it.  In any case it was the most trying experience I’ve had in a while.  That fabric was slipping and sliding the whole time I was cutting and sewing it.  I just have to finish the hood of the cloak and it will be done and I can hide it away forever.  Just look at this material and all it’s shiny slippery evil-ness.
