I posted this DIY Liberty fabric button push pin art on my Instagram feed recently and wanted to share a tutorial so you can make one of your own. This is such a great project for small scraps and would make a lovely decoration in your home or a gift for a fellow fabric lover!
Here is a close up of the fabric button push pins.
Today I want to show you this heart mini quilt block I made using my beloved Liberty scraps. This is a great project to use up fabric scraps and showcase scraps you can’t bear to throw away. I’ve sewn a lot of items but this the very first quilt block I’ve made! My half square triangles are not very precise but I’m very happy with how this turned out. I couldn’t find the exact heart quilt block I needed so I made this block up myself. If you’re interested in how I made this read on.
Today I’d like to show you some of the Liberty fabrics printed in Japan including Liberty Hello Kitty! There are some prints or colorways that are printed exclusively for the Japanese market and I’ve been fortunate enough to find some on Etsy and Ebay. This post is picture heavy so prepare yourself for cuteness overload =)
Here are variety of past Liberty Hello Kitty prints and some from the most recent 40th anniversary collection.
I am so excited the new Liberty Spring/Summer 2016 fabric collection are available in a number of online shops now! This new collection named ‘The Artist’ is inspired by the world of fine art. You can see more here.
I love this new collection and managed to get 2 of these lovely prints when it was first released. The top print is Painter’s Meadow and the bottom print is Posy Landscape. I’m sure I’ll be going back for more from this divine 52 piece collection.
I just saw Jones & Vandermeer has a 10% off their site that applies to Liberty fabrics. They currently stock some of the new SS2016 prints including Painter’s Meadow.
Liberty also released some of their classics in new colorways. I love the new Tresco and Wildflowers colors.
What are your favorites?
Wishing you a fantastic holiday season! Happy “mad” Liberty shopping =)
I love my Liberty London fabrics and can’t bear to throw away any scraps. I came up with this idea for a tiny hexie Christmas tree card to use up some of my scraps. This would make a great card to give to your sewing friends don’t you think?
I’ve been on a pincushion making craze lately. This is such a great project for small scraps and is quick to sew. I thought I’d share a few variations I made using my pattern. To get the instructions and free pattern on how to make this pincushion check out my previous post.
I made a slightly smaller pincushion using Christmas color fabrics in red and green including bits of Liberty Hello Kitty fabric. I scaled the pattern to print at 75% and used a 3/8″ inch seam allowance. The points for the top didn’t match exactly so I suggest not trying to scale it unless you’re okay with some inaccuracies.
