New Arrivals

I'm thrilled to carry my first line from Riley Blake in my shop! With their spot-on color palettes, fabulous designers, and adorable prints, I've long loved this company's products.

Millie's Closet by Bee in My Bonnet (designer Lori Holt) arrived this week, and my daughter, Olivia, and I literally squealed as we unpacked the boxes. The prints are "SOOO cute!," as Olivia said.

The designs are inspired by Lori Holt's grandma and are a 30s throwback with a modern twist. I happen to adore the dress form and stripe prints, though it's hard to pick a favorite!


This "cheater" print is also fantastic because the squares are just large enough to cut out to use in 5" charm patterns. Brilliant, right?

There's also some sweet 1/4" crochet trim to embellish projects with. Available in white and aqua, they perfectly with Millie's Closet fabric. I can see this being the perfect extra touch on pin cushions, zip pouches, or small toss pillows.

Riley Blake offers some fantastic video tutorials on their website. I love this one with Bee in My Bonnet designer Lori Holt showing how to make an functional, fast travel bag using the Millie's Closet fabrics. 

Even though I have so many other projects going on, I don't know if I'll be able to resist not cutting into these fabrics this weekend!

  1. OMG I just received the big bundle of the whole line from FQS. I didn't know you were getting this line in. I also didn't know they had matching crochet trim. I NEED that!!!! I will be back for that very soon as I bought this bundle to make Callee dresses. That trim would be great around the bottom or the arm holes.
