Spooktacular Halloween!

I hope you caught sight of our gorgeous Ruby Ruffles Skirt pattern, done up in these amazing Spooktacular Too fabrics!  Bats and ghosts and "boos" oh my! I am loving this fresh collection for this Halloween, with its slightly antiqued palette - such a nice change from the usual bright black/orange/purple/lime combinations I usually see for Halloween. Other fabrics in the collection feature black cats, pumpkins, potions and more.


I used Rachel's Reverse Applique Tutorial to embellish a store-bought tee with the cute little ghost and "boo" cut from the fabric motifs. Then I added a little pre-made bow to the ghost just to be sure she would be too cute to spook.

Best of all, I had scraps left over to make a little Halloween mini-bunting using our Fabric Banner tutorial. I just left out the photo pocket, and instead of using bias binding, made the hanging strap from a straight cut of the fabric, selvedge to selvedge, pressed and folded as if it were bias binding.

Happy Halloween!
