2013 Halloween Fabrics

Looks like 2013 is going to be a good year for "Halloween" fabrics! (I use quotes because in my world these prints are worn year-round.) Let's take a peek at some of them.

How about if we start with dessert? And what could be better than Goth cupcakes? This one is so much fun! I especially love the ripped fishnet with safety pins.
Black Goth Cupcakes by Michael Miller
I'm not a huge fan of skulls, but I bet some of you will like this pile o' skulls fabric:
from Ghosts and Ghouls by Windham Fabrics
I prefer the cuter, smaller scale skulls:
Eerie Halloween Black Skull and Crossbones
Chandelier motifs have been popular for a while:
Scary Lighting by Michael Miller

Alexander Henry can always be counted on for interesting designs. I like this in white:
After Dark by Alexander Henry
It also comes in pink, grey and red:

I like both the grey and the purple of this print of owls and ravens in spooky trees, though it kind of looks like the owl is peering through binoculars:
from Ghosts and Ghouls by Windham Fabrics
For those who like their owls cute, there's this:
Eerie Halloween Black Halloween Owls

I love the cute swirls on the webs in this spiderweb print, which is available in grey, black and purple:
Too Cute to Spook Spiderwebs
For a more subtle spiderweb experience, there's this one:
Who's Watching Black Spiderwebs
 And for cute smiling spiders, this one:
Spooky Eve Grey Spiderwebs
Then there's this spideriferous lime green fabric which kind of freaks me out.
from Ghosts and Ghouls by Windham Fabrics
But that's nothing compared to the absolute HORROR of this one. It's a fabric adapted from a movie adapted from a book! :P
October Moon Pin-Up
Okay, enough of the shirtless wolf boys and sparkly vampires. Let's move on to the glow-in-the-dark spiderwebs:
Spider Web Glow in the Dark
 This bat print is from last year but still available. I can never have too many bat prints!
Trick or Treat Bats
I like that this one has moons as well as bats:
from Ghosts and Ghouls by Windham Fabrics
Orange says "Halloween," but this is more of a red-orange, so I might not limit it to October:
Kanvas Spooktacular Going Batty

And finally, my personal holy grail of fabrics -- purple with black bats. If I only buy one fabric this year (yeah, right!), it will be this one.

  5. "I use quotes because in my world these prints are worn year-round."

    My exact sentiments ;)

    The purple bat chandelier and purple swirly spider webs has been sitting in my basket for days now; unable to hit that checkout, but unwilling to just let go hehe.

    1. I wear these types of prints year-round... and you know, I get compliments year-round. No one has ever made any "Halloween is in October" type comments.

      The purple swirly spiderwebs fabric is toward the top of my list. I like pale purple with black.

    1. Same here. Just my luck, lots of good fabrics come out the year I'm unemployed. :P

  8. I already had my eyes on that chandelier fabric, but thanks for alerting me to the black spiders on green. I will be adding it my absurdly large stash, which I am barely chipping away at.

    I saw that Twilight fabric (or one very similar) for sale in JoAnn's, and my first thought was "I don't want to live in a world where this exists."

    1. I like the spiders on green, but at the same time, it sort of freaks me out. I think it's the large scale... they're not just spiders, they're BIG spiders.

      Ha ha! My thought on the Twilight fabric was, "Will this madness ever end?!" I feel bad for all the unfortunate grandmothers who will be forced to sew pillowcases and quilts for their granddaughters.

  9. I guess it would be silly to buy fabric right now to pack away, right? :P

    1. It would indeed be silly. ;) Be strong, you can wait. I know you have the willpower!
