Vintage Lace | Fall Flash Round!

Jun 1, 2017

I. Freaking. Love. Halloween.
I’ve probably mentioned this before on here.  But it’s true.  I’m not all about the blood and gore Halloween…more for the cutesy/dorky/creepy/crawly side of things.

I love themes.  I love costumes.  And I love the creativity behind Halloween.  I just love it all.  So even if I’m sewing strike-off fabrics well out of season, I don’t care.  Because the strikes are Halloween prints and I am ALLLLLLL over it!

The ladies over at  Vintage Lace are having a Fall Flash Round of fabrics and it opens TODAY!  In this round, you’ll find apples, leaves, sunflowers, footballs…and HALLOWEEN!  Eep!  I was lucky and they sent me their ghost fabric (with the argyle style coordinate) as well as their bats (and also that burlap-style coordinate.)  Love, love, love.

I had this urge to add some crochet to the top I was making myself.  I took the Mama Mya from M4M and added some granny squares to the sleeves.  I’m pretty sure my Mom is officially mad at me for not giving this top to her.  I’m in the dog house if I don’t make another.

For Lou’s shirt, I used the Jolly Roger Raglan from P4P and simply accented the burlap with some bat sleeves.  He loved it so much that he requested to keep wearing it all day.  In May.  Nowhere near Halloween.

Of course I let him!

Maybe it’s a little dorky to match with your kiddo and then take photos together.  But we are al a little dorky.  So it works out.

This particular set of fabrics were sent to us printed on the brushed poly base.  I’ve used Vintage Lace’s brushed poly a few times now and I really like it.  It’s only brushed on on side and is a pretty sturdy fabric, while still having a decent drape to it.  I actually really like it for leggings too…because it’s a little thicker than some dbps I’ve played with and I actually feel like I’m wearing pants when I have them on.  Sometimes brushed poly is so comfy and soft that I feel like i”m naked.  Maybe people prefer that?  But I like to feel like I have clothes on, haha.

The second set of prints that I got to play with were these ADORABLE ghosts.  I literally cannot wait to wear this top a million times this fall.  I swear that the Vintage Lace ladies sometimes design things just so I can wear them.  It’s just so darn cute.

I took the Patterns for Pirates Sweetheart Peplum and I adore this top.  I even did binding on my neckline, you guys!  Without whining or complaining about it.  Progress.

For Lou, I used the new M4M Dylan Tee.  I told you that it’s awesome for colorblocking!  Since we were sharing yardage for these strikes, I was trying to squeeze as much as I could out of the fabrics…and this was a perfect way to make sure I could make Louis a shirt, as well as myself.

Plus, the little ghosts look so cute with the stripes, don’t they?

Lou and I upped the dork level by wearing matching glasses for these photos.  Mine are prescription, his are just cute on him.  And that’s all that matters, yes?

Here are some links for you!

(Bat Fabric) Mama Mya | Jolly Roger Raglan

Fabric: Vintage Lace Prints and they are both on pre-order starting today!  Head to their website to place your order or their facebook group to be “in the know” with all of their prints!

And I can’t fully leave you without some ridiculous photos.  This is a compilation of Louis when he got ahold of my camera remote and I was out of the room.  I came back in and he said “Momma, I just can’t stop winking at the camera.” Hahahah.  Oh I love this little ham of mine.
