Halloween 2021

Happy Halloween 2021!!

Fabric Direct Online is here to assist with your amazing creativeness, whether it’s for dress fabrics/materials or craft supplies and decorations. Find tips and ideas for fancy dress costumes and Halloween decorations with a fabulous array of dress fabrics available in store and online.

For as long as Halloween has been a tradition, do we ever stop and wonder why we do such silly things on the 31st October each year? It’s just too much fun to resist!

We can thank our American cousins for the increasing popularity of this festival that symbolises the world of the living and the world of the dead. Generally celebrated by children, the grown up’s have decided to get in on the act with parties getting bigger and better year upon year.

More elaborate fancy dress costumes and house decorations adorn our homes and we hope to give you some ideas and inspiration. Shop bought outfits are great but there is nothing more rewarding than creating bespoke costumes for yourself or your little ones and we must not forget our beloved pooches!

Halloween 2021

Girly Fabrics

Tulle and Budget Satin Fabric / Material – It doesn’t always have to be about ghost’s and ghouls, what about fearful fairies and princesses! Our 100% Polyester Tulle dress fabric is perfect for making fairy wings or ballerina tutus and under garments. We have plain netting or sequined for that extra bit of sparkle. It couples up well with our budget satin fabric/material, available in a variety of bright colours and not too expensive should you wish to rip and tear for added effect. Our budget satin fabric would also work well for Clown costumes.

Cats and Animals

100 % Acrylic Fur – This is the perfect dress fabric for costumes such as cats, bears, wolves and so much more. Available in either long or short fur and a range of different colours and designs, it really is a great fancy dress option. The Leopard and Cheetah is a firm favourite along with our cute cow print fur, perfect for toddlers and pets……who wouldn’t love to see a Corgi Cow roaming our streets on Halloween night!

Pirates & Skeletons

100% Cotton and Poly Cotton – The 100% cotton can be used for dress fabrics, quilting, face masks but equally effective for bunting and table coverings. A soft drape with colourful, mixed designs gives it a more cheerful feel, perhaps more appropriate for younger age groups.

Halloween 2021

For our older Pirate Wannabe’s, we have Skull & Cross Bones poly cotton fabric. 80% polyester and 20% cotton, this material is perfect for eye patches, neckerchiefs and bandana’s or why not make goody bags to collect your Halloween treats.

Goth & Steampunk

Rose & Hubble 100% cotton Poplin – For a more mature dress fabric we have our Rose & Hubble, 100% cotton Poplin featuring a stunning Skeleton Skull and Floral design. This cotton is extremely versatile, sews easily and drapes beautifully. The perfect material for dresses, tops, skirts, jackets and let’s not forget cushion covers for that all year round Goth and Steampunk look.


Voiles, Organza’s, Tulles, Velvets and Ribbon – Helium balloons are a must for Halloween and when draped with Tulle, Voiles and Organza the finished look really is amazing! Drape, twist and tie with contrasting coloured ribbon to achieve that wow factor for Halloween Decorations. Fabric pumpkins are also on trend this year and look stunning when made with Navy, Teal and Orange velvets. Use real twigs as the stalk to finish them off perfectly.

Fabric Bunting

We have a huge variety of polycottons, poplins and sheeting with varied Halloween colours and designs. Cut out your required size triangles and sew into bias binding or cotton tape to maintain a traditional bunting look or make rag bunting for a more haunting effect.

Either way you will be spoilt for choice with our selections.
