A box of thread. I’m absolutely thrilled with useful gifts. April and I carefully curated this colorful layered box of thread for you to use by hand or in your machine. The top has Perle emboidery floss that is so lovely to work with. Below is some inspiration. I’ve been working on a hand quilted throw made of linen. The second layer is all cotton thread for the machine. Stay warm and see you soon!
Liberty of London is the gift that we all want to unwrap or pull from our stocking. And contrary to popular belief, you don’t need yards of it to be satisfied. We have bundles of fat-eighths in the shop as well as singles so you can curate the perfect bundle for someone you love. Below I’ve listed a few ideas for using little bits of Liberty.
Below I’ve used a very small amount for a nice splash of color in my studio.
Here I’ve started cutting 4” squares for a quilt.
It’s so satisfying to find a pattern that fits every time. I can’t get enough of this adorable pencil. This pattern is a great basic shape to have and it’s incredibly easy to alter. As you can see, I’ve left off the ruching because I like clean simple lines. It only takes only an hour to sew and 3/4 yd. of fabric!
There are some photos below to show all of the different closures I’ve done. My favorite is the invisible zipper. The first one I made was in wool. I made a linen version for a wedding this summer and the Robert Kaufman Essex for everyday. Versitile and simple. I love it. There’s a sample hanging in the shop that I made from Robert Kaufman railroad denim. Come visit!
