On the recent London trip a highlight was a visit to the Liberty store.
Today I sorted out all the Liberty fabrics I have collected over the years. Some from London, from Ebay, from “worn and washed fabrics” and some are over 20 years old – I made two pairs of shorts when I was on my “student placement year” aged 20, no sewing machine, just hand stitch – though I was only a size 10/12 then, so less to stitch! Somehow I managed to retain some scraps all this time and through… let me count….8 house moves.
Ready for Liberty indulgence?
I can’t do chocolate these days….. lets do Liberty fabrics and books (yes there are a few more additions this month. No, I am not going to admit how many!)
Question is……. exactly what to do with them. Precious fabrics are never a good idea……its daunting to make the first cut. I’m thinking about the Pink Paisley fabric (pic above this one) being a large centre piece, with smaller blocks around – lots of different prints- and then borders of magenta and teal prints. I did have the money to order a metre or two, but I blew it at the Plumo sale (I’ve had the Rajasthan cushions in my sights for a while). Oophs.
P.S. The French books – I got them made at Blurb, easy to use software, great quality – use Premium paper for printing.
