A while back a custom fabric retailer put haunted mansion fabric on their site. As a huge fan of both the ride and Halloween in general I knew I would have to have this fabric, many yards. Fast forward to the present, now my pretties are here, but what to do with them? I decided on raglans with contrasting sleeves for my mom, my husband and me.
Here’s my husbands front and sleeves, panel is kind of hard to see, but it says “Beware of Hitchhiking Ghosts.” I couldn’t quite bring myself to cut into the back fabric yet, that will probably come tomorrow.
This one is mine, I kind of forgot that I actually wanted the same panel as hubby, but I think the purple works pretty well with this one too “Mine says “Of Course There’s Always My Way.”
Moms will be the same as mine but with pale pink sleeves and neckband. I haven’t even printed moms pattern yet, mine was enough of a challenge to assemble and cut, one at a time. Granted it would likely be faster to just chain assemble. But it would be my luck that I get the pieces messed up, especially since our front and backs are the same fabrics in different sizes.
Here’s a rough shot of my shirt with the back fabric, I love this so much that I seriously regret not ordering more when I had the chance, but such is life.
In other news my cute gray and teal tank has a nice sized hole. Darn bracelet snags on it, and my watch too, but it’s so pretty! I’ll probably still make another one because I love how it fits so much. I really wish there was a way to fix it, but I can’t think of any. And there are a few more small holes around too, they’ll probably continue to run even if I did fix the big one. I can’t even bring this one to work to give to a patient that might need it, I’m afraid it’ll just start falling apart in the wash. Oh well, on to the next!
