Liberty Baby Romper Suit

Kathy from the studio has made this adorable Liberty Baby Romper Suit.  She has used Liberty Tana Lawn in Theo. The fabric choice for this romper suit is perfect.  Theo is a hand-drawn print created by Tamara de Peon and was inspired by Lewis Carroll’s beloved classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.  The design incorporates colourful creatures running, jumping and hopping around the fabric. I asked Kathy about her Liberty Baby Romper Suit.   What was your inspiration for making it? “The new addition to the Knight family.  We already knew it was going to be a little boy and I …

Liberty Scrubs and Bags for the NHS

The Alice Caroline team have been busy making Liberty scrubs and bags for the NHS.   We are all trying to help out as much as we can in a huge community effort against a terrible situation.  If there is one thing this has taught us here, it’s that sewing is really important in the lives of many people. I asked Anna about making scrubs.  “One of my neighbours works at my daughter’s school who had been very active in making visors for the NHS.  She knew that I worked at Alice Caroline so asked if I had any spare …

Liberty Picnic Blanket

Dawn from the studio has made this really useful Liberty Picnic Blanket.  We are all doing so much more walking here at the moment as it’s our only chance to get out of lockdown for some essential exercise.  She’s taking it out and about with her daily for her walk.  It uses PVC coated Atlas Liberty fabric. I asked Dawn about the project. “I was tempted to try and make a mini picnic blanket using the glossy PVC.

Miniature English Paper Piecing

Anna made her mum this cute pencil case using Miniature English Paper Piecing for Mothering Sunday.  Since making the Radiant Stars Quilt Anna is constantly looking for new things to EPP.  These really tiny but very cute 1/2″ hexagons take a while to turn into a ‘thing’ but its such a lovely calming experience ‘slow sewing’ projects like this. Here’s what Anna had to say about the make:  ” I wanted to make my mum something home-made for Mothering Sunday.  She loves art and drawing so I thought I’d make her something bright and cheery to put her pens and …

Liberty Vintage Pinafore

 Laura has made this gorgeous Liberty Vintage Pinafore using one of the recently launched quilting cottons.  She’s used Lawn A from the new Winterbourne collection.  It’s got a lovely vintage feel and it really showcases the use of a quilting cotton in a garment.    Here’s what Laura had to say about the project.”I have long thought that Liberty’s quilting cotton would also be suited to garment making (though the name of the fabric itself implies just the one end-use).  Specifically, garments that require a little more warmth or garments that benefit from having more structure, like this pinafore. The …

It’s finally finished – Anna has finished making the Radiant Stars Liberty Quilt this week.  After 15 months of very happy, slow sewing the quilt can be shown in all of its glory.

Each block would take around 2 hours to sew together but I would …
