Hi everyone and welcome if you’ve popped by on the Little Lady Liberty book tour. I jumped at the chance when I was asked by Stitch Craft Create as I’m a bit of a fan girl of Liberty fabrics!!!

Little Lady Liberty by Alice Caroline book tour

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!!!!

    Love the pencil case (I have a thing for butterflies)

    I think a scrunchie was the first thing I sewed too!
