You know us fabric hoarders—we can’t bear to throw out usable scraps of fabric. After I had made a bunch of face masks from the new Riley Blake Barbie print fabric, I had all these odd size scraps left over. The images make me think of Andy Warhol portraits. So … I framed them! In Barbie scale frames, of course. The framed image is 4” x 3” —just perfect for your Barbie diorama. They are available individually or collect them all.
What is more classic than black and white? I found this hand embroidered hankie and decided to pair it with a mini houndstooth check in silk. These pieces are separates, so feel free to mix and match with other pieces in your doll’s wardrobe. Includes magnetic cameo brooch. Available now in my Etsy shop.
I’ve made some more face masks from the delightful new Barbie prints. Available now in my Etsy shop.
I’ve added a few more face masks to my Etsy shop.
Sheer net hankies are a bit unusual, and to find one in black with ecru lace is quite a find. I decided to make a sheath dress using half of the hankie layered over Dupioni silk. I used the other half to make the detachable overskirt, which can also be worn as a cape. Available now in my Etsy shop.

I know I’ve been on a roll with blue and white dresses recently; that color combo just makes me think summer. I promise I’ll pull out more colors soon!
A while ago, I found a set of a dozen hankies on eBay. All had identical machine embroidered roses—4 in blue, 4 in pink, and 4 in yellow. I used 3 of the blue hankies to make the gored skirt of this dress so that I could take full advantage of the roses. A scrap of Dupioni silk was all it took to make the bodice. And a little rhinestone brooch coordinates beautifully. Available now in my Etsy shop.
Since both Barbie and Francie got dresses made from vintage wedding hankies and blue silk, I decided it was only appropriate that Skipper got one too. For Skipper’s dress, I added vintage lace and pearl buttons down the front of the bodice with a sweet bow at the neck. Available now in my Etsy shop.
Riley Blake Designs has just introduced a new line of coordinating Barbie print fabrics. I managed to get fat quarters of each fabric and have started making face masks from these delightful prints. Here are the first three. I was going to say these are available now in my Etsy shop, but I type too slow and they’ve already sold. If you like these prints, let me know and I’ll make more.
