Scraps of Liberty Lawn

Posted on Updated on

A friend’s birthday.

She is a sewist/knitter too.

It wasn’t easy to decide what to make for her.  I filtered ideas, I poured over a few craft books, I searched through my wool and fabric stashes.

I wanted the gift to be useful rather than just decorative.

Look what I decided to make!

Liberty lawn fabric pieced together to make a beautiful needle case, then wrapped in a spare piece of lawn instead of gift wrap.

She liked it too! I love gifting a home crafted present to someone who understands the effort you put into making it, don’t you?

      I took the idea of wrapping from somewhere else and I love it too!

    It’s gorgeous, all that piecing! It’s great when you know the person receiving a gift will appreciate the time and effort.
