You never throw away any Liberty London fabric scraps.  One, because it’s almost $40 a yard, and second, you may find uses for the little swatches.

I know my DIY sewing posts aren’t huge hits, so I’m just going to show you what I did briefly.

Picked up a .97 garden apron at Home Depot’s garden center.  Love my Fiskars Rotary Cutting Set, a must have for any seamstress.


Cut a patch of Liberty fabric and sewed it over.  I mean I love my hardware stores, but I just thought this would girly it up.


Extra fabric I did some patchwork and made 4.25″ wide and 19″ long strips – two of them.  Sewed, flipped inside out, pressed and did another stitch along the edges. Yes, those are pink pinking shears in the background.


Now I’ll match.


Of course I wore it to LGO.

I’ll be ready for this my next time in the garden.


I really need those signs that say, “Out in the garden” for all the times I miss the doorbell.

Diana Elizabeth will also match her table placemats.
