Here is a round up of this fabric stash. It all started with a gifted length of fabric - A Liberty Tana Lawn called Florence. A neighbour of a friend had become a widower and asked if I would like first dibs of his wife's fabric chest. That was five years ago.
I made the Mathilde Blouse but had to top stitch the pleats down just over my bust as they flared out and made me look ridiculous.
Here is what else I made using this fabric. There was about 4-5 metres of it.
A pocketed skirt from Sew Serendipity by Kay Whitt last year.
I made four mouse door stops two have been gifted and one is mine.
A girls dress which Big Sis wore three years ago and now is handed down to Little M. It is made from a vintage pattern that used to be my grandma's. My mum said she had one of these. Button shoulders, tie at the back, gathered waist - they stand the test of time don't they?
The watch strap revamp from earlier this year.
Finally, it's the turn of the left overs.
More recently my all time favourite skirt made a few weeks ago.
Another easy peasy peasant blouse over the weekend from this pattern which has been worth every penny, I highly recommend it. 45 mins work!!
A quilted tablet case on which I made a label out of a bit of the selvedge edge to remind me of this beautiful fabric's origins.
a pin cushion, then as the bits get smaller...
...more squares for my fantasy quilt in half square triangles.
I have enjoyed every inch of this fabric and although it has all gone now, I can still enjoy it in all it's various guises.
All done Number 5 - Liberty Tana Lawn Florence.
Which was your favourite?
Ps. This is a mosaic of projects.These are my makes over the last five years with this fabric, not all this week. There has been confusion in the past with these themed posts. During October I have made the skirt, blouse, pin cushion and tablet case.
