Bewitching Line Deb Strain

It’s that time of the year again… the “Bewitching” hour. Scary sceletons, black cats, witch’s brooms and spooky bats, all come  together in Deb Strain’s frightfully fancy Halloween fabric line called “Bewitching”. With pattern names like: Creepy Cats and Danger Damask, Deb thought you might like to see some of her inspiration and process behind the slightly scary group with Moda Fabrics.

Deb: “I hand draw and hand paint all of my collections, so it is quite a process! The print called ‘Creepy Cats’ was inspired by this guy”.

Deb: “However, when I drew him, he looked a little scarier…”

Deb: “In the final print, repeating my friend the black cat, made it even creepier’

Deb: “Danger Damask started in a similar way. First the drawing of the motif, or central image in the pattern..”
