Abbie's Garden

 Summer is upon us and the new line of fabric, Abbie's Garden designed by Sue Daley for Riley Blake, has me in the the mood for Summer.
The line includes both big and small florals, and some great basics in stripes and lattice designs.
And, of course, some adorable prints with Abbie in the garden.

I love to make bags and pouches and this fabric was just perfect!

I made this fun drawstring bag with a fussy cut pocket.  The body of the bag is Dark Grey Linen from Riley Blake and absolutely wonderful to work with.

I also made this sweet zipper pouch that features Abbie on a gathered pocket.

You can find this fun little pouch pattern in my Etsy shop - Charise Creates.

I'd love to see what you make with Abbie's Garden!

Pin Drop fabric

This has been a super busy sewing week! I hope you have had some time to sew : )
Today I am sharing a few projects I made with the new line - Pin Drop from Riley Blake Fabrics.

This perfect basic is designed by The Tatooed Quilter.  It comes in a rainbow of gorgeous colors.
I absolutely love this fabric and just had to make some sewing themed projects.

The adorable basket is a free pattern from The Sewing Chick.  I made the larger size with a rainbow of Pin Drip fabrics and Riley Blake linen in color Natural.  It is the perfect size to store your Pin Drop Fabrics : )

This tiny 3" pincushion is made with Pin Drop and Singing in the Rain fabric also from Riley Blake.

Last but not least, I made a scissor pouch with Pin Drop and Riley Blake gingham.  Tutorial coming soon : )

I am looking forward to using Pin Drop in upcoming projects.
What will you make?
