Sew Pretty Blog Hop

I am delighted to participate in the month-long Sew Pretty for Little Girls Blog Hop being hosted by Stitch Craft Create. This blog hop is all about sewing for little girls, focusing on the wonderful patterns in Alice Garrett's upcoming book Sew Pretty for Little Girls (Little Lady Liberty in the UK). All the projects in her book are made using Liberty Art Fabrics.

I had never heard of Liberty Art Fabrics before - they are beautiful! Take a look at some of the gorgeous fabrics:

Can you imagine using these fabrics to make dresses, skirts, accessories, bedroom decor, bags, baskets... Oh, the book is full of eye candy. Alice's projects are whimsical - I was itching to make one of them but could not decide which. Then, something caught my attention on the picture below...

Do you see that banner on the top shelf? Although it is not part of the featured projects, I had to make it! I did use Alice's butterfly template and searched for fabrics with small prints in my stash.

It turned out pretty cool! I stitched two triangles together to add body to each one, top stitched them, fused the butterflies, machine appliqued them using blanket stitch, then stitched triangles to the ric-rac. This banner will look so pretty in my little niece's bedroom. In her book, Alice shows us how to decorate a lampshade, which I will do repeating the butterfly theme. Finally on my list is the bag shown on the picture above...
