Riley Blake Chambray "Anna Blouse"


I was so excited to have the opportunity to sew with the new Chambray fabric from Riley Blake Designs.

My Anna blouse turned out to be the perfect design for this beautiful fabric.

I used the Chambray Dot Blue for the body and sleeves, and trimmed it with the Chambray Light Indigo.  I pre-washed both fabrics and they are so nice and soft. 


I am so pleased with how this Anna turned out.  Perfect to wear now with a cardigan, skinny jeans and boots and the Light Indigo Chambray would be perfect for some wide leg pants.

There are two more colors that are equally as beautiful and perfect for your sewing projects!

September Projects

Hope you are well!  I haven't posted in a long time and thought it may be fun to do a little recap of my September.

I finished a BIG deadline a few days ago, but did find time to join the 2020 Strawberry lovers party which was hosted by Amber Leigh Crafts on Instagram!  

She suggested a project each week to make with strawberry themed fabric.

I have lots of strawberry themed fabric and a couple strawberry patterns in my Etsy shop so I had to make some cute little strawberry themed projects.

🍓For the project above, The paper pieced strawberry is from my Summer time fruit pattern. The pouch is the Bon Bon pouch from the new book by @eliseandemelie ❤️

I made a fun little Strawberry Pouch! The paper pieced strawberry is from my Jam Jars and Fruit Pattern which you can find in my Etsy Shop, Charise Creates. The fun drawstring bag is designed by @lizAtBroderie on instagram, Broderie on Etsy.  This is the - It's in The Bag pattern. 
I love this pattern. A fun and easy make!⁠⠀
The strawberry fabric is from Riley Blake Designs - "Flutter and Shine" Fabric. The linen and gingham fabrics are also from Riley Blake.⁠⠀

You can find the boxy zipper pouch pattern in my Etsy Shop, Charise Creates link in profile.

The paper pieced strawberry ice cream cone is from the book Patchwork Patterns 318 which can be found at Sew Me a Song on Etsy

Oh and this happened!  19 years with this guy.  I am a lucky girl!

Happy Sewing!
