Fun Weekend Project

I saw this fab footstool on the Liberty blog today and immediately thought must add this to my list of projects. Not that I have the time to actually make it and don't really NEED it you understand, it's just really cool and I covet it.

Liberty often feature projects that promote the use of their gorgeous fabrics, natch.

But it occurred to me you could actually get the same effect by using splendid ties. You can raid your partner's wardrobe and they are dead cheap to pick up at jumbles.

No fussy cutting and pinning simply stitch them on. It'll do for me.


  1. This takes me back to my early 1970s craft magazines - when Liberty Lawn ties were in fashion first time round!

  2. Wow! That's really nice. I might have to add it to my list of things to make too!
