Oh, those are lovely! Yes, I have boxes full of scraps but I never seem to do anything useful with them ...
They're lovely. I like the first one best.
I think the blue might be my favourite.
Oh, you clever woman, you. These are lovely indeed. What a great idea. I'd love to try something like this. Have a wonderful week.
Those trees are beautiful. It's amazing what you can make using scraps. I would keep little bits like that but then I seldom get time to do something with them and they get forgotten. Hopefully some day I'll get to use up all my scraps of fabric and buttons and so on.
it's always so satisfying to use up all the scraps, and also to make something without spending any money x
Wow, so pretty, and so clever! Is this sort of free-hand/free-style machine embroidery ?Jillxo
yes, I use the free motion setting that I use for quilting but without the wadding
Beautiful, and definitely every teeniest bit of Liberty fabric has to be saved!
I love them, Tess. They look really organic and unplanned, very free.
omg, they are just so gorgeous. what a good idea.Brionyx
I love to use everything up, so satisfying x
Oh wow, how lovely, clever you. I always hang on to odd scraps as well. I really must make a scrap quilt soon next and use some of them up. CJ xx
Those are very lovely. It's been years since I quilted or appliqued, but have started to have the hankering again and have begun to collect fabric, so I will be able to answer this question in a few months!
Beautiful! At the moment my scraps are being turned into patchwork but even then there are bits which are too small - now I know what to do with them! xx
oh yes, save all the tiny pieces too! x
Very pretty x
Oh those are gorgeous - love your Liberty trees.
Totally darling little trees. Love them big time. Waste not, want not, eh?
I love Liberty prints and I love these trees! Beautiful.
liberty prints are my favourite fabrics in the whole world x
They are so beautiful! I can see they could be fiddly to sew though! X
Beautiful! I don't think I'd have the patience or the nimble fingers for such amazing work (never mind the eye sight). x
This is so true isn't it? I save the smallest scraps but my, your applique is beautiful. What will you make them into? You teased us with just a small picture of your work!Caz xx
these are destined just to be little pictures, I might make some cushions too though x
Tess, these are adorable! What are they going to be? I also like to use every last scrap, the smaller it is there more it challenges you :-)Amaliaxo
Really lovely x
thank you x
Oh how gorgeous. Reminds me of a story I heard about an old lady who had died, her family were clearing her house, and in the attic found a little tin,labelled 'Pieces of string too short to be useful' ? I think your Liberty scraps show nothing is too small to be used, and beautifully so X
oh fabulous! great colours and I love your stitched signature!
