This Halloween, I pursued a passion project I’ve been wanting to tackle: a “Witchy Wallflower” series. I’ve long dreamed of making up witches of different aesthetics, with matching backgrounds to reflect them blending in with society. Each witch would have a different back story and style, with handmade clothing and hats to reflect their particular aesthetics. Spoonflower was the perfect partner for this, so I made a pitch and asked them if they’d like to partner. To my delight, they said yes!

For this particular witch, I had the idea of making her hat reversible so she could easily transition between a girl about town and a witch. You know, for when you have a fondue party at 7 and coven meeting at 10.

Here’s a bit about Cynthia, the 70s witch:

Meet Cynthia, the 70s witch. Ever the social butterfly, Cynthia hides in plain sight: hosting fondue parties, attending macrame classes, walking her familiar in her suburban, cookie cutter neighborhood. But in the snap of her fingers, her floppy floral hat transforms into a witch’s topper, and she and her tiny companion fly into the night. 

For Cynthia’s jumpsuit, I used the vintage Simplicity pattern 8254 and Spoonflower’s Spring Pink Retro Flower Power fabric in Organic Cotton Sateen from bloom in my park. I used the same print in Cypress Cotton Canvas for the secret witch hat, which I made with a modified version of this downloadable pdf pattern. The matching wallpaper is their peel and stick wallpaper in the same print. Here’s the Secret witch hat tutorial / reversible bucket hat video.
