Barbie™ World Mini Purse and Ruffle Purse

Hi! Charise here from Charise Creates. I’m so excited to show you my new projects made with the new Barbie collection. 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. I replaced the zipper 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. Head on over to my blog for a quick tutorial on how to make the 6″ finished / 6 1/2″ unfinished 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!

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.

I hope you make a project with the new Barbie fabric collection. Please be sure to tag your photos on social media with the hashtags:
