Liberty Lifestyle

Hope everyone has had a blissful week in the sun; the weekend was so glorious, spent up on the roof garden and then lunch and tennis with friends and family on Sunday. I loved every minute, apart from Otto digging enormous holes in my mum’s freshly laid turf. Bad dog.

Anyhoo, I was planning on doing some sewing at the weekend (before the sun started to shine) because I recently won a Liberty craft competition. The challenge was to use Liberty Lifestyle fabrics in any creative way and instagram the result. Here are my entries:

How to make a magnetic noticeboard board

I made this magnetic noticeboard from a baking sheet and Liberty’s Woolf print. Find the tutorial here.

Tea light jam jars

I lined this tea light jar with strips of Lytton print. Find the tutorial here.

Liberty Lifestyle blind

I made this ‘cheaters’ blind by sticking Cranston print onto a really cheap roller blind. Find the tutorial here.

Liberty print apron

I customised this child’s apron with Lytton print. Find the tutorial here.

How to make a Liberty baby blanket

I made a reversible baby blanket with Dorothy and Woolf prints. Find the tutorial here.

Liberty Lifestyle fat quarter bundle

I was thrilled to win one of the bundles of Liberty Lifestyle fabric and now I have to decide what to make with it. Any ideas?

P.S. If you want to buy any of the Liberty Lifestyle prints, Fabrics Galore is a great haberdashery that stocks all of the prints and you can order online with ease.

    Results! (I have bought some fabric in mozambique and may need a ‘little’ help. Well a lot…)

    Hey Katy, what about starting a patchwork quilt? I’ve got The Amazings on my mind so you could combine your win with their online classes. The fabrics are lovely, so you’ll be able to keep them together with the finished quilt. Well done on winning. 🙂
