A Romance Between the Line It Up Tote and Liberty

What happens when the Line It Up Tote meets Liberty lawn fabric? Perfection.


I made the panel go from light to dark in value with some tiny Liberty scraps. No piece of Liberty is too small to be treasured and saved. The grey is Robert Kaufman Essex yarn dyed. It plays well with the colors of Liberty.


This tote has piping so I used a dark piece on the dark edge.


And light for the light edge.


For the lining (and piping), I used some faux-berty. Robert Kaufman’s London Calling and Moda’s Regent Street are both lovely lawns that play well with Liberty lawn. Plus I actually remembered to put in a label.


This little tote is for my friend Pam! I hope it will go on many great adventures with her.

Today’s pallete is bit of a challenge for me. These aren’t my usual colors; I usually go for purer colors. But I still think this is pretty.

These colors aren’t super prominent in my stash, but here it is! I kind of like it. This project was supposed to be a challenge to work outside my color comfort zone.

Modern Patchwork Sketchbook Cover

Modern Patchwork is one of my favorite publications! It’s always full of fun, fresh, well-made ideas. And I’m excited to be in the new issue! 

  

My project is this sketchbook cover! It’s made with Carolyn Friedlander mini charms. 

  

This is a fun one to dig through your scrap bin for. I’m contemplating making another one with my coveted Liberty scraps.

  

The cover is hand stitched with oversized cross stitches. I used Aurifil Aurifloss which is my fave floss. I’m pretty sure that citrine color is my favorite.

  

Inside the covers is more scrappy goodness with binding.

 

Modern Patchwork is available at your local new stands or you can pick it up digitally here. Check it out!
