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..

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.

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.
