I have been doing a lot of sewing for other people- no complaining mind, I like to sew for others, especially creating something with a certain person or place in mind. You remember the little tea cozy that went to Liberty's- here it is in all its fine surroundings, along with the tea cup- made using Laurraine's pattern. You can see more Liberty Lifestyle makes, like Katy's Ferris Wheel at their Facebook page. Ayumi has now received this tray which also featured Liberty Lifestyle fabrics.
It was made using her cutlery tray tutorial but on a much larger scale- this is in-tray sized to store works in progress. It now lives with Ayumi along with Penny's spool/button basket! Details on how to adapt Ayumi's tutes to make these coming soon at Sew-Ichigo. I have more Liberty Lifestyle makes planned, I'll show soon, just have to actually make them!
I have also been working on a big project for Annie at Village Haberdashery- big as in a large item!
It is a double duvet cover, made with Lotta 'Bella'. I wanted to make a large scale item for these big prints. These are 8 inch equilateral triangles.
It is a weighty beast! But I am really happy how it turned out.
Details on how to make it are coming to Village Haberdashery blog soon! It needs to travel to Annie first for a photo session- that all sounds very glamourous!
Olympics start tomorrow, I am more than a little excited. Cannot wait to see the magic Danny Boyle creates with the opening ceremony x
