I'm new here, and I've been wanting to learn to sew and teach myself to use a machine for some time, I picked a pretty easy project and I'm looking for a certain print of fabric.

I'm looking for something horror movie or zombie related, as the project is for halloween.

I have searched online, but I have no idea where to start.

I would assume you're just looking for woven cotton?

4my3boyz has some cute halloween prints:

The woman that owns it is really nice, too. If you need more than a fat quarter, just contact her and she'll cut you the size you need.

Most fabric stores should be getting halloween prints in pretty soon, too.

Also, ebay and etsy sellers usually have seasonal prints year-round. (www.ebay.com  /  www.etsy.com)
For etsy, you might want to search "supplies" not "handmade."

www.JoAnn.com might have something. (they're having a sale right now too Smiley


I usually check ebay first, just because I'm an ebay seller and spend a lot of time tootling around there.
I haven't been able to find any zombie fabric during my little google-party for this post. You might have to look pretty hard for that.

Good Luck!

Break the rules, not your tools.

I couldn't find any zombie fabric either, but if you're handy with GIMP or Photoshop, there's always Spoonflower, which will custom-print fabric for you. 'Course, you pay through the nose for it.
