Barbie Fabric Collection ~ Mini & Ruffle Purse


I'm so excited to show you my new projects made with the new Barbie collection Licensed by Riley Blake Designs. I think this may be my favorite Barbie collection to date!  I love a good gingham for my projects and not only does this fabric line include adorable prints, it even includes an exclusive B for Barbie gingham!

I love the Barbie Main print and I used it on both of the purses I made. The print includes all the Barbies in an adorable medallion design.

The cute little mini purse is made from my "Home Sweet Home" zipper pouch. The zipper closure was replaced for a magnetic clasp on the lining.

One side of the mini purse is a 9 Patch block that measures 6" square. I use the Barbie Main print and the Sunglasses print to create the 9 patch block. 

I used the selvage to create the handles. I love the Barbie script and.....

the Barbies icons on the selvages! I used the Barbie Dolls print for the lining - so fun!

If you'd like to make a 6" 9 Patch block follow the instructions below ~ (It also makes a cute coaster!)

To make a 6" finished / 6 1/2" unfinished 9 Patch Quilt Block:

Cut 5 - 2 1/2" square of the Barbie Main print with your favorite Barbies : )

Cut 4 - 2 1/2" squares of the Sunglasses print

1)  Arrange the Prints in 3 rows as shown.  Sew the rows together.  Press towards the dark squares

2)  Stitch the rows together.  Press seams open.

I cannot wait to use this adorable cross body bag this Spring. The pattern is my Ruffle Purse and is a roomy cross body bag with an outside patch pocket and interior pocket.

The blue color way of this line is such a pretty shade of turquoise and I adore the pop of yellow. The Barbie gingham is the perfect basic for the bias trim and handle.
