Guest blogging on the Liberty Craft Blog...
During the run up to Christmas I was delighted to be asked by the team at Liberty London to contribute a sewing tutorial to their wonderful Craft Blog! I jumped at the chance (of course!) and a few days later a thick envelope full of fabric plopped onto the doormat with a satisfying thump. I got my thinking cap on and came to the conclusion that at at this time of year the only place to be is curled up under the covers of a Sunday morning with a cup of tea, the papers and of course a hot water bottle! Not just any hot water bottle but one made with beautiful Liberty print fabric, quilted with cotton batting so it's squishy and soft and finished with bias binding! My tutorial is now live on the Liberty Craft Blog so hop on over to check it out!
The Liberty Craft Blog is a wonderful resource for fans of their iconic prints and is full of project ideas from some brilliant craft bloggers. Some of my favourites include how to make a DIY baby quilt by Hannah and Rosie of The New Craft Society, make your own cafetiere cover and coasters from the new book The Liberty Book Of Simple Sewing and these awesome DIY embelished glasses purses by Charlotte Smith of the gorgeous craft blog Lotts and Lots!
I'll be posting the tutorial in full here later on in the week - if you need a quick fix of Liberty print in the meantime check out my Liberty Print Hair Scrunchie DIY Tutorial (which received a mention in issue 3 of Sew Liberty Magazine!)
