Stitch !


Stitch is the new line of fabric by Lori Holt of A Bee in My Bonnet for Riley Blake Designs.

Stitch is an adorable line of fabrics consisting of florals, vintage style prints and Sewing themed fabrics.

This fun little log cabin purse was designed by me for the book "Playful Little Paper Pieced Projects."

I used the adorable cheater print for the center square.  The sweet bias binding  with crochet trim is also designed by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs.

The zipper pouch can be found in my Etsy shop.  It is the perfectly designed for 6" finished blocks.  The sewing machine block is from the new book "100 Paper Pieced Blocks" which will be out in August.
The sewing machine block seemed a perfect choice made in "Stitch" fabric : )
The stripe fabric is a lovely basic from Riley Blake.

The opposite side of the pouch is made with the Stitch fabrics print "Vintage Ladies" and I added the cute little sewing machine zipper pull designed by Lori Holt as well.

The fun little tab on the zipper pouch was made from the selvedges !  They are so cute!


The cheater print is so dang adorable and you can see it in its full glory here!

Hidden Cottage

I had the opportunity to create with the adorable new line of fabric from Minki Kim designed for Riley Blake Designs.

Hidden cottage is a beautiful line of fabric consisting of florals, ginghams and a cute hexagon cheater print.  The palette is a lovely combination of Gold, pink, blue and green.

I have had the design for a new purse pattern in my head for a while and thought this would be the perfect fabric line for my design.

This is the first sample of my new pattern, "Hexagon Circle Purse"which will be released very soon!

I love how it turned out,  and it is a fairly quick make as the hexagons are sewn by machine.

The natural linen lining is from Riley Blake designs and the leather handles were found on Etsy.  

The Brass rivets that attach the handles to the purse were purchased from Tandy Leather.

I couldn't resist making another Macaroon Pouch with the adorable cheater hexagon print and Blue Floral.

You can find the pattern for the Macaroon Pouch in my Etsy shop - Charise Creates.
