Liberty Cathedral Classic Cushions

I am delighted to showcase these stunning Liberty Cathedral Classic Cushions.  These beautiful Cathedral window cushions have been made by Suzanne Campion, one of the lovely Alice Caroline customers.  Suzanne is a firm supporter of the Quilt SOS project and so far, has made many quilts for us to take to new worthy homes.  She stepped in at the last minute last year to make lots of extra quilts so that each child would receive one in Vilnius, Lithuania – thank you so much Suzanne! Suzanne told me a little about herself and her sewing journey.  “My Gran taught me to …

Lovely Liberty Maxi Skirt

Anna JP is taking over the blog today as she has made this rather lovely Liberty Maxi Skirt in one of the new fabrics from the new Palace Garden collection.  Over to her. With the launch of the new AW18 collection I was really happy to be asked to make something to showcase one of the beautiful new prints. As I’ve already got a lot of patterned tops I wanted to try a skirt this time. Being in a bit of a rush, I decided to work out a pattern myself rather than wait for one to arrive in the …

New Fabric Collection by Liberty – AW18

I am dreaming of A Palace Garden with this New Fabric Collection by Liberty for the autumn / winter 2018.  The collection is now available. This collection has been inspired by Eltham Palace in London.   The mix of Art Deco glamour and traditional English style creates a collection filled with rhythm, colour and surprise.  We have been playing around with inspiring fat quarter bundles in the Alice Caroline studio. Eltham Palace is a former royal residence in South East London used by Tudor kings and queens dating back to the 14th century. In 1933 the palace was revived by new owners, …

Gorgeous Liberty Table Runner

Anna JP in the office has created this gorgeous Liberty Table Runner.  She has made it using Liberty Tana Lawn ‘Thorpe’.  As usual, when a new project comes in, there is a lot of admiration from everyone in the studio.  It’s a perfectly fitted table runner using a lovely colourful fabric that compliments Anna’s living space really well. Here’s what Anna said about the Liberty Table Runner: “I wanted to use up the last medium-sized bit of Thorpe which I bought in the remnant sale.  My first thoughts were to make a garment but felt the colours didn’t work for me. …

Liberty Luggage Loveliness

Liberty Luggage Loveliness has arrived!  I’ve been planning these ever since I had the amazing stash of vintage fabrics last year.  I know a great company in India who use offcuts of fabrics to make really cool stuff. They work sustainably and ethically with a loyal team to make these lovely passport holders and luggage tags. I have chosen a selection of lovely vintage Liberty fabrics along with those of a more modern design.  Lovers of vintage Ianthe, Wiltshire and Dante will swoon at the thought.  I am planning on adding to my summer wardrobe with the vintage Dante so …

Liberty Raincoat – Bring on the April Showers!

Laura has been really busy and made this rather lovely Liberty Raincoat.  She’s used our matt coated PVC Felix & Isabelle fabric. Laura LOVES the snow!  She comes from Sydney and has come to work at Alice Caroline recently.  Laura doesn’t ever get snow in Sydney and has loved being in England this winter – a proper winter she calls it!  Laura squeals every time it snows which has been quite a lot recently.  This is our view from the top of the hill on our lunchtime walks we often do.  Needless to say, it doesn’t take much to get us all …
