I was really excited to look through this book Little Lady Liberty now that I have a little girl. I still love sewing for boys, but I'm getting interested in sewing for a girl now. Little Lady Liberty is written by Alice Caroline, who owns her own Liberty of Londonfabric shop. I have never actually sewn with Liberty fabric. I haven't reached the point of being able to spend that much on fabric, but I dream about the day.
This book has lots of cute, simple projects for little girls. Lots of floral and lots of piecing. I had a hard time deciding on what to make since Claire's room needs some decorating. Since Easter is coming up I decided to use the fabric boxes and make some bunny Easter baskets for the kids. I used a pretty brown and black linen for the outside which I quilted to the fleece and interfacing. I used some pretty rainbow dotted fabric for the inside. I added bunny ears and a face to each one.
I love decorating with them already, and I'm really excited for the kids to use them in an Easter egg hunt. Henry was fascinated watching me build the bunny faces of each one. I tried to use basic enough fabric that I can make somewhat matching bunny baskets for future children. Happy Easter!
