Glamorous Barbie fabrics by Riley Blake

Look what I discovered at the Fat Quarter Shop online quilting supplies store – fabulous Barbie fabrics!

I used to check Fat Quarter Shop on a weekly basis, looking for small-scale prints to add to my fabric stash to make dolls’ clothes. And then I stopped for a number of reasons:

  1. I’ve run out of room to store them (help!).
  2. The Aussie dollar conversion to USD is woeful these days.
  3. I find cotton quilting fabrics are often too thick to drape nicely when used to make dolls’ clothes.

But this week I had a feeling to just take a browse. And what did I find? Barbie themed fabrics by Riley Blake!!!

It’s a fabulous collection of prints in glamorous Barbie pink, black and white. I especially love the quilt panels.

You can buy the range in Fat Quarter Bundles, 10″ bundles, 5″ bundles, as well as each print separately by the yard.

Check them out:

(I think this one is my favourite)

The quilt panels measure 35″ by 42″.

These stripes would make a perfect Barbie beach towel. Check out my tutorial here on how to make your own Barbie beach towels.

It looks like they are selling fast! Tag me if you make something with them. I’d love to see.
