It’s just as fab as ever – just in a new place.
Look what I found and just had to buy! My love of Liberty Mitsi just grows and grows and to find these super cute Liberty shoes added quite an excitement to my day!
Great for the summer to wear with jeans but look really lovely with skirts too. May have bought them in Liberty Ciara fabric too! Oops..

I’m very excited to tell you that my new book Little Lady Liberty has been published in French! The French really love Liberty fabric so it’s great that my book will be available for them to buy and make the lovely things from the book. The Lilly duvet set sewing project is shown here but there are over 20 sewing projects in the book – all for little girls.
A sweet treat for you today! Such a lovely little baby dress in a Liberty fabric that is perfect for children’s clothes. Quite refreshing to see a girls dress made from a blue (but still girly) fabric – so hard to find in the shops today!
Children look simply gorgeous in any of the hundreds of Liberty prints available. Pick a fabric and pattern you love to get your little one kitted out Liberty style.
Thanks so much to Carol Li for making this pretty little thing for me.

I just couldn’t wait to try my Knot Bag with this fabulous ‘Pops and Boo’ print from the spring summer Liberty collection. It’s such a fun design and was inspired by the Garden of Live Flowers from the book ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
The Knot Bag is a stylish and practical way to wear your favourite Liberty print and only uses two pattern pieces – a lovely and simple sewing project. I made this bag in just 2 hours! Simply choose your favourite fabric and download my pattern and you have a new bag – hurray!
Thanks to my publisher, I can share these handy sewing tips with you from my recent book ‘Little Lady Liberty’. Hopefully, you will find some of the techniques helpful when cutting, pinning and finishing seams. I have also included clever methods of quickly sewing patchwork squares together, turning fabric tubes right side out, how to master button holes and a brief guide to hand sewn stitches.
Little Lady Liberty is packed with over 20 simple sewing projects for little girls from projects for the bedroom to twirly girly garments and many other pretty little things. You can buy my book here.
This lovely Liberty colour wheel quilt block was made for us from a Red Pepper Quilt design. It looks great just as a one block design to make a hanging picture, or you can piece together lots of blocks to make a stunning quilt. I just love the beautiful hand stitched detail that this colour wheel block has – you can really make this your own project by choosing your favourite designs and colours. This is a perfect project for your stash of Liberty fabric scraps but would work just as well from any pretty palette of rainbow coloured fabrics.
My Liberty scrap packs are perfect for this project – you can buy them here

Thanks to Barbara Morrison for making it for Alice Caroline – I think it looks beautiful.
A free party skirt pattern for you – one of the projects from my new book ‘Little Lady Liberty’. I’ve used Liberty of London fabric but any pretty floral fabric would look great.
This is my modern take on the kind of heavily embellished, traditional skirt worn with pride on special occasions by girls and women from different cultures across the world.
If, like me, you have a closely guarded stash of ribbons, this is a great way to dip into your collection. Take time to enjoy putting different combinations together, to create your very own heirloom masterpiece. It’s surprising how easy it is to create such a show-stopper skirt.
