Halloween Haberdashery

Halloween is coming, time to get your costumes planned. Why not do something a little different this year and treat yourself to some fabulous fabric and spooky accessories and get a bit more creative? Make yourself something beautifully horrible for Halloween with Extreme Housewifery’s top haberdashery recommendations!

Apothecary Labels Fat Quarter from Eclectic Maker

I adore this fabric. The price is right at £3 for a fat quarter, and I’m pretty sure this would make a cushion cover that you’d be proud to have on display all year long.

I think I’m also tempted to make myself a tote bag from it, since we’ll be seeing the introduction of the 5p carrier bag charge next week – time to get on that tote vibe. Check out DS Quilts free fat quarter friendly pattern download if you’re not sure where to begin!

Creative Craft Supplies Bewitching Bats Buttons

How cute are these? It’d be a simple matter to change the buttons on a favoured jacket and give it a Halloween spin with these little beauties. Just £2.50 a pack as well – it’s the little details that make all the difference as we all know.

This would be a great touch as a fastening to a vampire cape costume for adults or children too.

Skull and Crossbones Buttons from Abakhan

I am a bit obsessed with buttons, so I can’t resist putting another recommendation in here. These skull and cross bones are super cute and the more I look at this Halloween haberdashery the more I think it is totally appropriate to use all the time.

There’s still plenty of time to buy yourself a pattern and make an epic coat with pirate themed buttons!

Crafty Ribbons’ Monsters Ribbon

Let’s finish on a cutesy not, it doesn’t all have to be blood and gore at this time of year. This ribbon is super sweet and would be a top choice if you’re looking for a simple way to decorate your pumpkin without carving it!

I think this ribbon might make it time to revive the hair ribbon! I wonder if there are any styles out there. Oh wait, of course there is – we have the internet

Thank you internet.
