I've been looking on in envy at all of the wonderful halloween items available in the US this year, especially the wonderful skirts Bane at GIY made. Oh how I wanted some fabric that beautifully spooky!
I've caved in and brought some from Etsy;
This Nevermore fabric
This Ghouls Night Out fabric
There were some other pieces I really wanted, but with shipping costs on top I can't really justify spending so much money on fabric; I can't really afford the pieces I just brought even...
If I could afford it I would have brought this Tula Pink Coven fabric, which I absolutely adore, but would probably use for decor, not clothing (too colourful for me I think) and I don't have anywhere to decorate at the moment... It might be years before I have a house. This crows at the graveyard fabric which is also lovely, but I have a bag with a similar design already. I'd also like spiderwebs and these owls in an ideal world.
I can't wait until the fabric I did order arrives though! I'm not sure what I'm going to make with the fabric yet. I'm fairly proficient with a sewing machine but I've only made a few garments so I'm also worried that I'll ruin the expensive fabric. Maybe I should save it until I can afford a professional seamstress? What do you think?
