Kitty Corn - Black cats and spiders, a full moon and a pumpkin. Add a retro-inspired color palette with funky florals, candy corn, cool polka dots and plaids, and it’s Halloween!

Festive Felines will definitely put you in the mood for a Happy Halloween. Prints with pumpkins, bats and very cute cats are complemented by spooky sayings, dotty dots and a multi-colored stripe.

There is still definitely time to whip up these cute Trick-or-Treat bags... they sew up in a flash!
