Vintage Keepsakes for Riley Blake

Hello! Vintage Keepsakes by Beverly McCullogh (she has a fab website - www.flamingotoes.com) for Riley Blake Designs is pretty, floral, and dainty - the three cornerstones of perfect fabric in my opinion! When I got these lovely fabrics I knew I had to make it into a bag of some sort. Bags are my specialty!

Vintage Keepsakes Fabric


I created an Everything Bag which is boxy (to hold a lot of stuff), has a drawstring closure (to hold even more stuff), and pockets galore (to hold everything in your kitchen sink!).

One of my favorite prints in this collection was the handkerchief print. I used this print as the base of the bag and went from there.

Here is what I made:

I hope you enjoyed my project for Vintage Keepsakes fabric. It is available now, so check out your favorite fabric and quilt shops to see if they stock it!


Thanks,

Karen

    1. Oh thank you Rosemary! You are so sweet! I hope to have a pattern made. I always get asked for a pattern after I make something and honestly, I just draw what I make, measure, cut, sew, and hope it turn out lol! I've done instructions in the past (when I was published in Haute Handbags) and I'm not going to lie, it is difficult and time consuming. Kind of like writing a novella. My goal is to have patterns out this year. I will be posting a mini pouch tutorial soon so check back or my Instagram!
      Thanks!
