textiles THE NIGHT BEFORE LIBERTY There’s a shipment of Liberty of London fabrics in transit to the workroom. So, of course, I am up late looking at each of these six prints and wondering just what fun things they will become. Mauvey, Kate Ada, Kitty Grace, Ebs, Douglas Stripe and Clemmie – we’re going to have so much fun together!

Reply Sylvie August 24, 2010 at 4:15 am How lucky you are to work with Liberty Fabrics! And I wish I could get a little sampler like you! Have fun with the fabrics! I just made 2 top with Liberty fabrics and I get wait to get some more. Reply Andree Lachapelle August 24, 2010 at 7:39 am Those are gorgeous! Already, the creative wheels are turning… Reply Katie@ Grow. Cook. Sew. August 24, 2010 at 7:54 am I love the last one… can’t wait to see what you make! Reply Kelly August 24, 2010 at 9:26 am Wow! Karyn those are fabulous! Great picks! (my favourite is the Mauvey.) I just bought “Sew Serendipity” (by Kay Whitt) and any/all of these fabrics would be amazing for the patterns!!! Reply Carmen August 24, 2010 at 10:06 am Karyn, you take fantastic care of your customers! Reply Charlotte August 24, 2010 at 10:14 am Oh! Oh! I can already see Mauvey lining a new autumn jacket (made from a pattern this time!). Let us know when it comes in… Reply celine August 24, 2010 at 1:49 pm I love the fourth one. it looks so good. Reply Jennifer August 24, 2010 at 9:33 pm If I had that swatch book I would never stop flipping through it… might even carry it around with me so I could look at it everywhere 🙂 I’m loving Ebs, though I tend to go for the more traditional-looking Liberty prints. I would love to have a top or dress in this fabric! Reply Karyn August 25, 2010 at 2:10 am firstly – they ARRIVED!!! and they are so much lovelier on the bolt. i’ll take and post some beauty shots soon. sigh. Amanda – i know, the orange palette totally caught my eye. i tried to be more diverse with my colour selections, but orange won! Sylvie – oh, how i wish that sample book was mine. i had to give it back! and liberty is my favourite fabric to wear. it feels amazing! Andree – it’s true, these fabrics inspire. i don’t know which one to start with! Katie – i imagine that last print as a cute blouse of some sort. Kelly – i’ll have to look up that book. the mauvey fabrics is yummy raisin and grey shades. it would look great on you. carmen – i can’t help it! charlotte – brilliant idea. i used liberty to line a coat before. made me so happy to wear that coat. celine – you have to see it in person. roz was jumping up and down when she saw it. jennifer – ebs, is even better in a large piece. it will definitely be a dress for me. Reply Jane from NZ August 25, 2010 at 4:41 am I had my mum bring over some mauvey from London at Christmas time (we don’t get much selection of Liberty fabric here in NZ). You have great taste Reply amelia August 26, 2010 at 10:12 am i am so jealous you get to flip through that sampler. how inspiring. you’re choices are fantastic! i wish i lived closer so i could come see them in person…or that you had a mail order store… so beautiful. Reply Bee August 26, 2010 at 10:55 am They are all awesome, but Mauvey sings to me the most! Reply rosalyn August 26, 2010 at 2:36 pm omg. so good. Reply Anna August 26, 2010 at 4:55 pm these are all too beautiful, what a great selection and the colors are gorgeous Reply Michelle August 31, 2010 at 8:31 am The Purl Bee (I think) had a lovely and simple scarf tutorial using a yard and a half of Liberty… sigh. Reply Michelle August 31, 2010 at 8:36 am Yup. A yard and a quarter.
