Here's my Halloween purse.
I used plain black combined with a wonderful silhouette fabric from the Happy Halloween Collection by Maywood Studios Fabrics that I found a couple of years ago.
The pattern is McCall’s Easy Stitch ‘n Save #M5082. I modified it because I wanted to use two fabrics for the purse exterior instead of just the one called for in the pattern instructions. To do this, I laid the pattern piece on top of the two fabrics, figured out where the pieces should fit and worked from there.
This is not a repeat of the first picture; it’s the other side of the bag.
I especially wanted two different sections of the Halloween fabric to be centered just so on either side of the bag so that was taken into consideration, too. The colors in the tortoiseshell-look handles coordinated quite well with the fabric part of the purse.
Inside, I used a piece of the Halloween fabric to make the pocket. That was also carefully cut out so the “Happy Halloween” part was exactly where I want it. It looks great against the black lining.
