Doll Fabric Blog Tour

Doll Fabric
designed by See Kate Sew for 

The ever so talented Kate from See Kate Sew has 
designed this very cute panel 
which includes a girl doll and a boy doll 
with a few fun accessories. 


 I loved how easy the instructions were and 
how simple the panel was to sew.
The hardest part was stuffing them... 
FYI if you put a good movie on...
you can get everything stuffed very quickly.


The dolls have an extra large head with a skinny body 
which makes it so easy for children to hold on to.


The clothing is already printed on the panels.
 The only separate piece of clothing 
to sew is the little girls skirt and hair bows.



Look how cute the boy doll is!!!


The ice-cream cone is one of the fun accessories!


The panel and all the coordinating pieces can be found 
here at Riley Blake Designs.
 
Thanks for stopping by to see these 
adorable fabric dolls by Kate.
You can purchase this cute panel 
and other coordinating fabrics 
at your favorite fabric shop.

Happy Sewing!!!

Wistful Winds Blog Tour


What is not to LOVE about these gorgeous colors 
and beautiful designs by 
Shari Butler of Doohikey Designs.
I am thrilled to be part of the
Wistful Winds Blog Tour!


I Love the bright yellows, hot pinks, vibrant reds, 
calming aquas and warm oranges with a hint of green.
They are yummy and inspire one to create!!!


It was so hard to choose a project but 
Shari requested something very girly.
As you know I Love everything about girls and 
especially pretty things that girls wear!

The triangle pouch above was inspired by a spoonful of sugar 
and you can find their tutorial here.
I made this cute triangle pouch for "lala's" lipstick.


This is the "Sunny Dress" pattern by my 
pattern company called Butterfly Kisses
I Love this pattern because it can 
showcase many colors and prints from the 
Wistful Winds 
fabric collection.


When I designed this pinafore pattern many years ago 
I needed something that would showcase a variety of fabrics.
This pattern worked perfectly:)


My cute grand daughter is modeling this sweet pinafore... 
she can't wait to eat her cupcake.


Shari's colors and designs from Wistful Winds 
blend together so well. 
There are beautiful florals, sweet dots, 
bold stripes,tone on tone patterns, 
and a few geometric prints
 to help give this fabric line a modern vibe.


You can see we were lucky to capture one of those beautiful 
fall days up American Fork Canyon in Utah.


The sun is still shining and there is a slight breeze in the air.

                   

There is nothing better than a picnic up the 
canyon...listening to the running water 
and taking in the gorgeous scenery.


         Thank you so much for joining me in celebrating the
debut of Wistful Winds.
You can purchase all these beautiful fabrics from
your local quilt store.
You can also view the whole fabric line 
here at Riley Blake Designs.
Thank you Shari for letting me be part of your 
beautiful story!!!

Below are the many designers involved in this tour.
Please check them out to see their amazing creations.



Happy Sewing!!!
