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.
I made a couple more mini heart blocks I talked about in my last post using Heather Ross fabrics. I made these blocks larger than my last one to fit the mermaid and the goldfish in the center. I love how these turned out! This is a great project to use up fabric scraps and showcase prints you can’t bear to throw away.
UPDATE – August 9, 2016
If you want to make a mug rug of your own, I created a digital pattern for this quilt block in 2 sizes available in my Etsy shop here.
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.
I posted this Liberty patchwork pincushion on my Instagram feed recently and wanted to share the instructions and a free pattern so you can make one of your own. This is such a great project for small scraps and would make a lovely gift to a sewist!
I didn’t take pictures when I made my Liberty cushion but I made this one using my vintage feedsack fabrics to show you how. The finished pincushion measures a little over 5″ in diameter.
If you read my blog, you know how much I love Liberty lawn. I got these tiny fabric scraps of Liberty Betsy from Ava and Neve and wanted to find a way to turn the tiny scraps into a usable piece of fabric for a project. I decided to experiment using iron-on vinyl that I talked about here to tack down my fabric so I didn’t need to stitch down all the raw edges. I am so pleased with how this laminate pouch turned out.
If you want to try this out, here’s how you do it.
