The book is written by Alice Caroline who was introduced to sewing at a young age and is also a longtime fan of Liberty fabrics so much so that she now sells them! It’s a beautiful book to look through, and covers everything from starting to sew, different techniques to colour theory as well as covering a wide range of projects from a hair scrunchie (which I think is the first thing I ever sewed!) to a bed quilt. It’s the perfect book to look through with beautifully styled photos and a range of projects that the little lady in your life (and probably you too!) would like to sew. I particularly love the layered skirts, although I daren’t show them to Little Lady as she will be hassling me immediately!
One of the things that I was inspired by were the butterflies that were scattered throughout the book and used in the curtains and lampshade project – they are so bright and cheerful and, given how pricey Liberty can be, the perfect way to make a few precious scraps go a long way.
I didn’t quite fancy cutting out that many butterflies so instead used the instructions for the Orla Pencil Case, traced some butterflies from the back of the book and then spent a happy while arranging everything until I was happy!
The instructions were easy to follow, although I did make a couple of additions to the pencil case by putting in zipper tabs ends and boxing out the corners. And soon enough I had a couple of pouches and the desire to decorate all the things with butterflies!!!!
Thanks for popping by,
Today’s sky – beautifully sunny.
