I have loved seeing new sewing and quilting projects that have been made using my latest fabric collection for Riley Blake Designs, Notting Hill and thought I would share some of that inspiration with you! It always is fun for me to see the variety of ways creative folks use the fabric I’ve designed. This fabric is so perfect for spring – so hopefully this will inspire some fun spring sewing ideas as well!
If you’re new here, Notting Hill is my latest fabric collection for Riley Blake Designs. You can read more about the inspiration for Notting Hill here as well as see more photos of the fabrics themselves here. I have a list of shops carrying Notting Hill listed below.
Sewing Projects and Inspiration made with Notting Hill Fabric
Here are some recent projects to be found on the web. Some are patterns and tutorials that are available now, others projects are purely eye-candy and inspiration.

Small Gifts and Bags
First of all, I love these cheerful scrunchies made by Damjana at Apple Green Cottage – she has a free scrunchie pattern here. I think these would make adorable Easter gifts.
This Large Dresden project bag with zipper is a free tutorial from Bev at Flamingo Toes. You can find her free tutorial (as well as that cute zipper pull) here.
The Smitten Chicken has made an adorable zipper pouched with personalized hand stitching. You can find the tutorial for making this pouch here.
This adorable patchwork and applique zipper pouch and notebook cover are made by Sarah of Piccolo Studio. This pattern, called Tiny Town, will be available soon from Piccolo Studio.
This Union Jack saddle bag made by Karen at Cream Craft Goods has me absolutely swooning! Karen is so talented at back making with amazing details.
Here’s a look at more of the prints used for trim, lining and other details. There’s not a pattern for this one. (Karen mostly creates her projects as a personal creative outlet.) But I couldn’t not share it – still full of so much fabric-y inspiration for any other bag pattern.
Minki Kim used the little red floral paired with her Idyllic fabric to make her latest quilted zipper box pattern. (I can never get over how cute Minki Kim’s projects are!) You can find the quilted boxy case pattern here as well as a YouTube video where she walks you through all of the steps! This gives me courage to think I could possibly make one without making a mess of it!
Ameroonie Designs is the master of zipper pouches and has a variety of tutorials to make zipper pouches in different sizes listed here. She also has a tutorial to make the ruffled scrunched flower tutorial here.
Ameroonie also made these fun accessories including tutorials for a little wrist wallet/envelope, as well as a face mask with a hanging lanyard.
Handmade Dress in Notting Hill
That’s Sew Kari made a gorgeous dress – I love the use of those cabbage roses in the skirt. (Be sure to check out the post to see the skirt in full-twirl!) And how beautiful is that hand-embroidered flower detail??
Quilts Made with Notting Hill Fabric
Bev from Flamingo Toes is also hosting a quilt along using her Vintage Stars quilt pattern and making this version with Notting Hill.
Jessica Dayon has a free pattern for this cheerful quilt called the Ruthie Quilt. I love the vintage look of those pinwheel stars!
