Beautiful Bench Cushions – Liberty Quilting Cotton

Sarah from the studio has made these Beautiful Bench Cushions for her pew using some of the festive quilting cottons. I asked Sarah about the project.  “The pew comes from a chapel I attended as a child and is therefore very special to me in my home.  I’ve been wanting something to embellish it and make it more inviting as a place to sit.  I especially liked the poinsettia quilting cotton fabric when it arrived in the studio so it was a natural choice.” “I saw a picture of a buttoned cushion in a magazine which gave me the idea …

Liberty Children’s Pyjamas

Kathy from the office has made these super sweet Liberty Children’s Pyjamas.  She has made them for Albert, her niece’s son using a Simplicity pattern (1574).  I’m completely smitten with these gorgeous PJ’s – in fact I quite fancy making a larger pair for myself!

Liberty Christmas Baskets

Dawn and Julie have made these beautiful Liberty Christmas Baskets.  They both belong to a sewing group and made them during one of their festive sews. Julie chose ‘Capel B40‘ for her basket.  I asked her about the make.  “I thought this fabric was lovely and Christmassy and would coordinate really nicely with the Scandi items I made last year.  I’ve used my basket for napkins but you could easily use them for condiments, cutlery or even pine cones in front of the fire. I used Frosty Silver X for the contrast fabric as I wanted the Capel to really stand …

Lara from the studio has made this stunning Liberty Kimono Jacket using one of the Classic fabrics Decadent Blooms.  This is so beautiful and I love the way it drapes. I asked Lara abut the sewing project. Which pattern did you use? “I used a Simplicity pattern number 8968 and made view A.  I changed the pattern substantially though as I found it too full.  I removed the two front panels on the jacket which means it drapes better.  I put a facing on the collar and front opening as well as cuffs on the sleeves.  I felt that shortening …
