They are so Enchanted!

My friends and I have been busy playing with my new fabric line for Riley Blake, Enchanted!
What fun we have had!!!

How cute is this apron!!!

My dear friend Linda is modeling a terrific apron by Cabbage Rose (Sassy Apront). The pink squirrels in the Enchanted line were screaming to be made up in something cute. And that’s what this is… Just plain cute and so practical. What a fun gift this would be for any one of your friends. Sizes are Small to Plus size which is always nice to have. I made these for my grandkids school teachers once and they were a big hit!

Such a cute pouch!

My friend, Chris, made this adorable bag. (Wide Open Bag, Patterns by Annie) This is the largest size and it is wonderful! It is nice and roomy and will be perfect for a multitude of purposes.  There are 3 sizes.  The bags use the large zippers and are fairly easy to make. Bags keep their shape by using the foam or headliner fabric. Make up a few for gifts, but be sure to keep some for yourself.   This bag is featured  in the Enchanted Teal main with a shade solid, Flamingo by Riley Blake. 

My friend, Jen's got my bag!!!
(Bon Voyage, Kati Cupcake)

I had to get in on the fun too!  Can I just tell you how much I love this bag? This is my standby most favorite purse pattern ever! Doesn’t it look just fabulous in the pink plaid from the Enchanted collection? I just adore it!  This purse has lots of pockets and plenty of room as an everyday bag or for travel. It can also be used as a diaper bag. So very versatile. 
My daughter has already spied this purse and wants to claim it—
well she will have to fight me and my friends first! HA! (If Jen ever gives it back!)

The pink plaid, blue medallion and  navy squirrel fabric prints work so well together in this combination. I just can’t stop making things from these Enchanted fabrics…just so much fun! 

TIP:  My local quilt store stocks headliner fabric. It’s the same as the foam stabilizer that is sold in packages, but a fraction of the price!! Ask your store about carrying some.

Those pockets inside!!!  You can carry all sorts of treasures!
Looks like Jen has snuck in a friend!
I may kidnap him and take him home with me!!!

   I used these two threads for the Bon Voyage bag.
