Cotton Lawn and Voile Source Guide

I’ve raved about Liberty London cotton lawn but it is pricey so today I want to discuss more affordable fabric options. For the Liberty London lawn lovers, see my Liberty London Source Guide here and my Liberty fabric projects here.

Cotton Lawn

  • Robert Kaufman London Calling – This collection of cotton lawn prints ranges from $10-$13 a yard. The red floral print on the left below is my favorite from this collection.
  • Robert Kaufman Lennox Gardens – This is another collection of cotton lawn prints that range from $10-$13 a yard. The purple floral print on the right below is my favorite from this collection.

Mad For Fabric - DIY Liberty London Patchwork Tote

DIY Liberty London Patchwork Tote Bag

I’ve been wanting a lightweight tote bag to carry around when I run errands so being the sewist that I am I decided to make one rather than buy one. I used my beloved Liberty London scraps for my patchwork tote bag but you can use any fabric scraps you have on hand. Also check out out my other fabric scrap projects here.

UPDATE 4/2/2015: I’ve have Liberty scrap packs in my Etsy shop so you can buy some lovely scraps to make your own patchwork tote.
