The Liberty Book of Home Sewing – Book Review

The Liberty Book of Home Sewing

I didn’t have to fall in love with this book after opening it – I did so before.  Just the thought of a sewing book using Liberty prints exclusively was enough.

The book starts with a bit of History behind the famous and much loved fabric of Liberty.  It then goes straight into some great sewing projects – Cushion covers, curtains and blinds.  Aprons, potholders and various bags.  Messenger boards, bean bags, book covers and gadget cases.  Those are just to wet your appetite:)  There are many more.

I think the lay out of the projects are fantastic with clear diagrams on how to cut your patterns and sew the projects together.

There is also a small section at the back of the book on sewing essentials – from equipment, making the project patterns and some tips on sewing.

It is full of inspiration and is not overwhelming for beginner sewers.  It has got me thinking….maybe a few more liberty prints need to be added to my stash – I would love to do some of these projects!
