Day of the Dead Fabric is In!

Calaveras From Alexander Henry
 They've been on order for months, and finally, have arrived!  The most popular fabric in my collection at The Grove every October....Calaveras!  This time it's sprinkled with a little (just a touch) of gold bling and the skulls are striking against a midnight black background.  Great for draping over your table for October Parties or creating a cool shirt or gypsy skirt to welcome the one night each year that the dead "officially" visit our planet!

Indigo Skulls is a new design this year I just couldn't resist!  Navy blues and reds outline the laughing skulls on a warm cream background!  A friend saw it last week and is already measuring windows in her new apartment for this edgy fabric.

Don't know how to sew?  Try "Steam a Seam" for hems...all you have to have is an iron and you ready to make curtains, napkins, placemats, table runners...I could go on and on.  

But maybe you would rather do a little hand stitching?

Then try your hand at embroidery transfers and tattoo Skulls and Zombies or Monster designs on your towels, arm bands, head bands, shirts....

All you need is a little fabric, some embroidery floss, hoop and a needle  -
