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 …

Luna Lapin’s Liberty Cat

Lara’s final super cute make from the Luna Lapin’s friends book by Sarah Peel.  Here’s the cat which Lara has made for herself.  It’s completely gorgeous, as are the fox and rabbit shown in previous blog posts. “I made the cat first.  I chose the lovely felt fabric from a company called Billow Fabrics.  I decided that an old skirt of mine would make a rather lovely pinafore dress.  I lined the dress and ears with Wiltshire C.  I also used the Wiltshire C fabric on her footpads which looks really sweet.  I love the pinafore dress so much that …

Luna Lapin’s Liberty Fox

This is the second of Lara’s gorgeous projects – this is Luna Lapin’s Liberty Fox.  I simply love this adorable teddy.  Lara has taken the best from the pattern but has added her own touches for clothing and face design. I asked her about the project. “I bought the book ‘Luna Lapin’s Friends’ on a shopping trip to Evesham Vale.  There’s a cute little craft shop there that I love.  It caught my eye with its cute forest creatures.  I made this ‘Rafferty Fox’ for a new baby in our family.  I thought Rafferty was a fox like name although …

Lara from the studio has made this gorgeous Rosie Rabbit Liberty Luna Lapin.  It’s from the book Luna Lapin’s Friends by Sarah Peel and the results are really beautiful.  In actual fact, she’s made 3 of the teddies from the book but we thought we would share them over time as they are so lovely. I asked Lara about the make: “The rabbit is based on Luna Lapin but I did make quite a few alterations.  I wanted to make a Little Red Riding Rabbit for my daughter Sofia and used the Wiltshire S fabric to make her dress.  I …

Beautiful Quilt SOS Quilt

We’ve received the first beautiful Quilt SOS Quilt into the studio for our 2020 project.  It’s a completely stunning quilt which has so much detail within it.  It’s a quilt that is full of fun and interest and therefore perfect for a child.  It has been made by Kathryn Ross and was inspired by her daughters bedroom floor and by Arbury Hall.  The Quilt SOS project is now in its 5th year – later on this year we are taking the quilts to London to be given to the children and their mothers currently seeking refuge in the safe houses …

Mitsi Mustard Liberty Shirt

Anna JP from the office has made this lovely Mitsi Mustard Liberty shirt for her son.  It uses one of our exclusive fabrics from 2019 in one of the most popular Liberty prints.  The Mitsi mustard design is inspired by Japanese cherry blossom.  As Anna says, it looks rather like the hawthorn ‘may’ flower that we see here in the spring hedgerows. Here’s what Anna had to say about the project.  “Following the success of Isaac’s “Walter+Gilbert” Christmas prezzie shirt, I was interested to see if I would enjoy the sewing process more if I had less of a pattern-matching challenge. …
