Vintage Style Liberty Peg Bag

Lara has made this gorgeous Vintage Style Liberty Peg Bag using the left over organic fabrics from the Easter apron.  The new Liberty organic fabrics are perfect for this vintage style type of project.  Their soft colours have a lovely vintage feel. I asked Lara about the project: “This project was an off shoot from the pinafore I made for Easter Sunday.  I used the scraps from the fat quarters for the appliquéd birds and flowers.  I love using absolutely every scrap of fabric up.  I’m really into zero waste and this, coupled with the fact that Liberty fabric is …

Liberty Easter Pinafore

Lara from the studio has made this really cute vintage look Liberty Easter Pinafore for collecting Easter eggs. She loved the colours in the new Organic Liberty Tana Lawn fabrics as they are soft and muted and have a lovely vintage feel. I asked Lara about the project: “I’ve always wanted to have chickens so I’m planning ahead and trying to live the country dream.  I made my daughter this Liberty Easter Pinafore for collecting Easter eggs.  Each Easter Sunday my family hold an Easter egg hunt.  It’s usually in my mum’s garden as there’s loads of lovely places to …

Komebukuro Liberty Rice Bags

Anne and Gill from the Lewes Sewing Bees have made some mini Komebukuro Liberty Rice Bags from the leftover exclusive fabrics.  These are such sweet little bags with so many uses I can think of.  If you remember, a few weeks ago I shared Gill’s gorgeous ‘Anna’s Garden’ jacket and Anne’s beautiful Pear Table Runner and fabulous hold all bag.  They have very cleverly used the offcuts from these projects to make these sweet little bags.       I asked them about the bags:   Anne says “I love Susan Briscoe’s book Japanese Quilt Inspirations and in it I …

Liberty Japanese Bag

Anne Commin from the Lewes Sewing Bees has made this gorgeous Liberty Japanese Bag using fabrics from my exclusive Liberty Butterfly Garden collection.  It’s full reversible with a lovely patchwork on one side and then the large print Anna’s Garden Teal on the other.  I love reversible bags as you can match to whatever you are wearing on that particular day.   I asked Anne about the sewing project:   Where did you get the inspiration to make this lovely bag? “I’ve just completed a Japanese quilt which was a whole new fabric adventure. This has inspired me to make …

Liberty Cat Bag

Julie from the studio has made this cute Liberty Cat Bag for her daughter’s cat Coco.  My cat Twig is modelling it here!

Strawberry Thief Knot Bag

The lovely Dawn from the studio has made this Strawberry Thief Knot Bag to match her gorgeous UGG boots.  She has used the colourway  Strawberry Thief L.   I asked Dawn about the sewing project.  “I really liked the look of Alice’s knot bag pattern and it was easy to decide on the fabric.  Strawberry Thief L matches my Ugg boots and a little scarf I made a few months ago! I lined the bag in plain Tana Lawn in black which was a practical choice. I just made a couple of tweaks to the pattern by adding a little …

Beautiful Liberty Patchwork Bag

This Beautiful Liberty Patchwork Bag has been made by Dawn from the studio.  Dawn is in a sewing group and is always arriving at the studio with another beautiful Liberty item.  It’s got red Jelly handles by Lecien and is made using 2.5 inch Liberty squares. The deep red binding and red handles look great with the random Liberty squares.  Many of us have a spare stash of Liberty lurking in our fabric cupboard.  Mine is literally huge as I can’t bear to part with one off or vintage pieces.  Dawn has put together pinks and reds to give this …

Liberty patchwork Anna Bag

Sarah from the studio has made this really pretty Liberty patchwork Anna Bag from my range of exclusive Liberty fabrics.  It’s simply lovely.  It brings together two of my favourite things – putting colours together and making bags. The pattern for this bag was inspired by my friend Anna who a couple of years ago made a quilt for her daughter from hand pieced Liberty hexagons.  I’m normally too impatient to hand sew, but I’ve always liked the portability of crafts like knitting.  So I devised this partially-portable sewing project as a way to reconnect with making by hand.  It’s a …
