Beautiful Liberty Patchwork Bag

This Beautiful Liberty Patchwork Bag has been made by Dawn from the studio.  Dawn is in a sewing group and is always arriving at the studio with another beautiful Liberty item.  It’s got red Jelly handles by Lecien and is made using 2.5 inch Liberty squares. The deep red binding and red handles look great with the random Liberty squares.  Many of us have a spare stash of Liberty lurking in our fabric cupboard.  Mine is literally huge as I can’t bear to part with one off or vintage pieces.  Dawn has put together pinks and reds to give this …

Liberty patchwork Anna Bag

Sarah from the studio has made this really pretty Liberty patchwork Anna Bag from my range of exclusive Liberty fabrics.  It’s simply lovely.  It brings together two of my favourite things – putting colours together and making bags.
