Batty October Outfit

Posted on by Ashley      No Comments

We thought we’d repost Hailey’s blog from last October. Clever idea Hailey!

OCTOBER IS HERE! I’m already so excited for Halloween that I have to have something festive to wear while I wait for my favorite holiday! It’s been warm but crisp in the bay area lately, so I thought a shawl or shrug would be perfect.

Black Batty Shrug




Step 1: Fold a black bedsheet in half horizontally.  I traced bat wings on a black bedsheet. I folded it in half again to keep them symmetrical.


Step 2: I cut the wings out.


Step 3: I sewed the edges, cut arm holes, and sewed loops to the ends of the sleeves to hold them in place.


Step 4: Wear!


(I paired my shrug with some vintage thigh-highs and a cute black Forever 21 dress from Thrift Town for $4.99!)


I hope you guys enjoyed my blog!
