[WANTED] Miscallaneous brown fabric scraps!
As a cosplayer I know how much spare or scrap fabric that's still of a fairly reasonable size you end up with but are loathe to throw out because "it might just be useful for something eventually..."

I am especially interested in faux leather or suede scraps but cotton, canvas or really anything anyone has just kicking about would be much appriciated as long as it's not patterned.

I'll obviously pay postage, but otherwise I'm looking to not pay too much for them as I'm on a bit of a budget atm as I've had to take time out of uni (so will have to potentially finance myself completely next year) and am too sick to work right now. Any donations of unwanted fabric that people just want rid of due to needing the space will warrant a massive thank you and I'll also put a thanks in the costume description.

If you yourself happen to be looking for any spare buttons or fabric or zips or whatever I would be more than happy to trade with you if I happen to have what you're looking for. I have a whole suitcase full of zippers, as I am usually a textiles student as well as a coplayer and have accumutaled a lot of really random fabric, buttons, ribbon, wire, broken jewellery, etc over the years.

I'm also looking to get rid of a large proportion of my manga collection soon (mostly shojo and yaoi), so if there's something you're looking for then I'd be happy to trade you manga or books too.

(If it's a trade, then I'd be paying the postage for that item instead of the fabric, but I would make up the difference if it was more at your end.)

I might have some brown leatherette? If you'd like it I'll send it as soon as I can get the care package together for you! xx

I'm currently using the brown polycotton I've got. After I'm done with it, you can have the larger scraps though :3

I need black scraps, preferably in something akin to leather.

I might still have a large bit of brown leatherette lying around, I'll take a look once I'm back at uni

Thanks guys!

Yes miiol I would love that, if you need anything I might have squirrelled away, just ask.

Nixiethepixie, you're in luck I have a bunch of black leatherette scraps, roughly how much do you need cos I've got a couple of big-ish bits and some smaller ones?

Thanks for the offer Piratetoaster but I think that's a bit too lightweight a fabric, but thank you very much anway it was very kind of you.

That'd be great Freyarule, thank you.
