Happy Halloween from Michael Miller Fabrics!

I saw these birdie wings on BurdaStyle a couple of years ago and I've always thought they would look great in Cotton Couture... and they do!! Imagine all of the color combo possibilities! Visit our Cotton Couture website to see all of your options.

Cotton Couture also works magic for a scrubs costume! All you need to finish it up is a stethoscope and a surgical mask!
Or, a classic Dorothy costume using Tiny Gingham in Blue.
Butterick B3762 (slightly altered) 

It's a perfectly pink flower fairy! So much Fairy Frost mixed with enchanting Flower Fairies...
Don't forget the pink wig!! 
(the pattern is McCall's M6897)
Use our new Leopard flannel to create the stylized look above...
Removable Peter Pan Collar tutorial from My Sparkle.

For the giraffe and the Zebra look we used Butterick pattern 3238 paired with our Show Your Skin Flannel.

How great is this Rockabilly Vampire?!? He's wearing a Flame cape paired with jeans and a white tee- so easy for a last minute costume! Free cape download coming to our website soon!
And, the final, most important detail of every costume... 
the trick-or-treat bag!!
We created this bag using our new Halloween collection called Nightmare in Gnomeville and GLOW IN DARK FAIRY FROST!!
Download the free tote bag pattern here.

*tried, tested and approved by kids!! 

Have a wonderful and safe Halloween!
