 I was going to wait until Tuesday before getting stuff for the steampunk overalls costume, but instead took my howler monkey spawn to Hancocks with me and got some twill and notions. It's a khaki/light brown twill blend that I'll use for the first pair of gaiters, which I'm going to modify slightly for easier sewing. I got the grommet machine so I can install grommets for side lacing on them. I also got the hat stretcher and have it working on the leather steampunk hat that I got at ConQuest, I don't know how long to leave it stretching but I don't need the had for awhile so time is no issue. 

I took the kids out to the nature park for a bit of rampage time, that took some energy out of them. I'll be taking them out again tonight for time with friends. Time permitting I may even get some sewing done tonight on the gaiters, although I'm modifying the pattern enough that I have no idea if the first attempt will work. I also need to figure out where I want patch pockets on the overalls since they'll probably be in the same fabric as the gaiters.
