Lovely Liberty Easter Eggs

  My Lovely Liberty Easter Eggs – I just had to have a go at making these fab Easter eggs this year – after the success of my Christmas baubles, I thought Liberty would look just as great on an Easter tree.  Inspired by Mary Berry and her program about Easter food and decorations, (there was a lovely Easter tree on the Easter feast table – but it would have looked even better in Liberty fabric!) I thought it was about time I had a go. Admittedly, there’s not that much time before Easter day – um it’s tomorrow but …

You will need a white tea towel (or a I made one from a piece of white linen 20in x 25in. To hem the edges: fold 1/4in over along one side, press, fold another 1/4in over, press and stitch through all layers, repeat at three remaining sides.

Half Term Haberdashery – Lovely Liberty Project

One of my Liberty projects is featured on the Liberty of London website today in time for the Half Term holidays.  It’s a customised girl’s jumper – the perfect rainy day project to make this half term and wear all winter. I thought this would be a fun and quick project to make and it’s always good to see the delight on someone’s face when a homemade gift is received.  It would also be fun to make alongside a daughter or grandchild as it’s a fairly simple project.  It’s a great up cycling project so you can take any jumper …
