Liberty Fabrics "The Deco Dance" * and * Free Pattern for my Ruffle Purse!

I adore Liberty Fabrics and was a contributor to the Liberty craft blog years ago.  The site is no longer, but I decided to make a past project that I designed for the Liberty craft blog                                                    with the newest collection of Liberty fabrics - "The Deco Dance Collection" from Riley Blake.

The Ruffle Purse is a zipper purse that can be used as a clutch or cross body bag - just add your favorite shoulder strap.  The clutch strap is included with the pattern!

You can find the FREE pattern [HERE]

I couldn't make just one Ruffle Purse!  This version uses the pale lavender prints and I paired it with Riley Blake Natural linen, Swiss Dots and Gingham,  and Riley Blake "Bee Cute Lace". 

The clutch strap is scrappy patchwork, which I love!

The second version of the Ruffle Purse features Navy/Pink colors in the fabric line paired with Riley Blake linen in Navy.

Anne of Green Gables


Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite book series.  When I had the opportunity to sew a project with the new Anne of Green Gables line of fabric from Riley Blake, I could not resist!

The fabric is a beautiful selection of florals, text prints and of course a cute print of Anne Shirley too!  The palette is beautiful shades of lavender and green.

I made a Gathered Clutch so I could use the Anne print as the center panel, and added bias cut gingham piping to frame the adorable fabric in the center panel.

The Gathered Clutch Pattern can be found in my Etsy shop.  The gingham and linen fabric are also from Riley Blake.

The prints are so adorable and deserved a design that highlighted them.  I designed this Hexagon Tote Bag which I believe does just that! 

The tote has an inside pocket, zipper closure, and a shoulder strap which makes it the perfect design to hold projects on the go or as a shopping tote.

The tote also has lace trim which works nicely with the print.  The lovely cotton lace is from Riley Blake!  You can find the pattern for the Hexagon Tote Bag in my Etsy shop.

The "Anne" print is perfect for fussy cutting!  Isn't this zipper tab adorable?!
