my jacket. I finally found the brown leather and wood toggles I wanted, only to realize that brown leather was going to look awful next to the trim I'm using. I cut up some of my leftover leather from my hitchhikker's jacket, and I like the look. Even if I did cut the leather loops a little bit too long. Oops. I'm attaching the sleeves now, but the sleeves are a little tight across the upper arm, so I have to let them out a bit.

Ooo question! I'm trying to find a source for thinsulate interlining material that won't include ordering it from the States of a cost of $25 for the fabric, $35 for shipping, and an additional $20 when you convert that to Canadian. I suspect I can do better than $80 for 3 m of interlining fabric if I source it in Canada. Does anyone know if anywhere down south carries thinsulate?
Anywho, I'd better get back to it. No, not the jacket - I need to come up with 10 exam questions tonight. :P Although those sleeves are calling my name...NO HEATHER, BAD. Back to work, missy!
