Naughty but nice #1- Liberty Fabric

OK I admit it, I did by some Liberty Fabric the other day, but how could I resist?, it was inevitable, it had my name on it!

I'm sure there are people out there who have used the excuses "it was calling to me" or "it had my name written all over it", I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Patchwork House has recently had lots of Liberty Fabric, so I was secretly hoping they would have my special one, and as I was wandering around, I found it in all its an adorable little scrap bag- that jumped into my hands and begged to be taken home. And thats how it ended up to be in my house.

I don't know what I am going to do with them yet (apart from admire them).
My mums first reaction was something along the lines of:
"great and what are you going to do with them? You can't do anything with those scraps"
I gasped offcourse and said "You can do anything with scraps!"...I just haven't decided what exactly.

There's about 2 and a half fat quarters worth of scraps- I could make a mini quilt or maybe a cushion, or maybe even a softie like a Melly and Me pattern...

What would you do with a bag of Liberty scraps?
 Do you have a project that springs to mind?- If sew I would love to know!

Hope your having a wonderful wednesday!

  1. That sure is a lovely selection of scraps. I'm sure they'll become something gorgeous after they have been petted sufficiently.

  2. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I love collecting fabric and just enjoying it until something comes to me. Something will come to you too.

    By the way, your dog is sooo cute!

  3. That’s ok Kate, thankyou also :)
    I really enjoy collecting fabric, especially when it’s a piece that I found and I absolutely love. I have a fabric that I bought about 2 years ago because I loved the colours in it and although I still haven’t thought of something just right to do with it yet, every now and then I pull it out and smile. Like my liberty scraps, one day I will think of something perfect to do with it!
