A Pocket Full of Memories - sweet Liberty fabrics


My love for Liberty fabric runs deep - that no secret, so when this new Children's Collection was released from Alice Caroline, I began dreaming of what I might make with it.  "A Pocket Full of Memories" SS18 is the latest collection designed for all those kids projects you have been wanting to make and is now available.


There are beautiful bright and bold colours in this collection alongside the sweeter of pastels which just seem to work as Liberty does so well together.  The florals are stunning blooms and the whimsical characters such as butterflies, Hot Air Balloons, Stars, Birds and so many more - just ever so delightful.


After spending some time deliberating what I would love to make with them and which I would use together, I decided to make my Junction Road pattern.  I have a special friends little one, birthday to make a sweet gift for.


The Tana Lawn has such a soft drape so it is perfect for small children items as the feel is just ever so soft.



Combining big bold prints and small dainty florals work really well in this design.  With the Interwoven feature corner design giving this quilt a real punch.  


Because the Liberty is so soft I wanted the machine quilting to not be to heavy.  I chose to quilt simple lines across the diagonal so as to not take away from the beautiful prints and let them shine through.




And because I couldn't resist making up some of these sweet Hair Ties and Scrunchies with these stunning Liberty fabrics.  Whilst it may be put together as a "Children's Collection" - I certainly think that there are many print that will delight the adults just the same.  My favourite print is "Magical Bouquet".


For those Liberty fans or even if you are new to Liberty fabrics - these the won't disappoint. 

Happy sewing
