Have you seen Sedef's of Down Grapevine Lane "Sweet Orchard" collection? It's truly absolutely and totally sweet. I could not wait for these prints to arrive in stores. I bought this bundle from Ministry of Fabric. Alisha always has a wonderful range of fabrics and her service is great.
This little stack I picked up on my last visit to Spotlight. Just random pieces that caught my eye. I especially like the pink stripes and the Little Red Riding Hood.
It did not take me long to cut into the Little Red Riding Hood fabric and make something quite useful. I always enjoy the planning part of any project and the gathering of all the supplies as much as the sewing itself. Choosing ribbons, threads, tags always excites me.
I made a needle book and a quilted round basket for small bits and bobs. I also made a couple of needle minders and a few small fabric covered buttons. You can find a template for this lovely button card, created by Elea of Elea Lutz Design here. Just print it out, glue it on a piece of cardboard and attach your favourite buttons. It would make a lovely gift to your crafty friend.
Oh Liberty! I truly believe that no matter what you make with Liberty, it would always look pretty. So many different intricate patterns, so many colours, so hard to make a choice. I settled on these three prints and made three small projects that I will show you all a bit later. Ava & Neve, another Australia-based store, has an amazing range of Liberty.
These prints I bought on eBay. I love tiny polka dots and gingham prints, they are always a nice addition to some projects, so as tiny florals. I generally buy fabric in fat quarters. This way it's much easier to have a wider range of different prints and colours.
