Pumpkin Spice, Everything Nice. It’s time to prepare for Halloween and Moda designer Deb Strain wrote this blog about the design process of the Halloween Collection “Bewitching” for you. Including inspirational images of the original sketches! Check it out now!
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..”
Deb: “and then repeating and painting”
Deb: “I create each pattern in the group, the same way”
Deb: “It is obvious that I had a splendidly spooky (and fun) time designing “Bewitching”. Hope that you have as much fun using it!”
The collection is recently sent to the fabric stores all over Europe. Want to know where to shop? Check our Storelocator!
