Liberty Scrap Challenge 2012 – January Edition!

by Nova on January 9, 2012

Yay! Scraps at the ready & let the challenge begin!

When I received my Liberty scrap pack from Jo, she had also generously included a fat 1/8 of some very gorgeous blue starry fabric with a note saying it reminded her of New Year Fireworks. So with that in mind the creative process of what to make for my first project in the challenge went something like this…

New Year = welcoming in = hello!
Fireworks = celebration = bunting!

To break us all into the new year gently I have made 2 ‘no sew’ projects! (scroll down for the tutorial link).

A fabric wrapped wire ‘hello’

I was inspired by this yummy yarn creation spotted over on the Whip Up calendar. Inspiration credit to Teri Dimalanta of GiddyGiddy.  As soon as I saw it , I  pinned it as I knew I wanted to create something similar with fabric scraps!

& next up some no -sew mini bunting! The lightness of the Liberty tana lawn fabric makes for wonderfully fluttery bunting, but it will work just as well with any cotton scraps :)

Such a quick & pretty way to spruce up your sewing space, shelving, mirrors, to  drape between pictures, across your bed headboard, around a window… in fact wherever there is a space in need of a bit of fluttery Liberty prettiness!

Ok so here’s the tutorials & how to…..

I was having trouble posting the tutorials (for goodness knows what reason the blog wasn’t playing nice today) so I have prepared a PDF with both the tutorials & the templates needed, all in one neat little package for you :) You can download the tutorials by clicking the link below ::

Mini ‘No-Sew’ Bunting & Fabric Wire Word Tutorial

(this is a PDF file & you will need to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer – free download available here)

If you have trouble downloading the tutorial, please let me know & I will happily email you  a copy of the pdf.

Perhaps you prefer tutorials this way? or both in the post & in a pdf? I always have the best intentions of making a pdf to go with each tutorial but then get ……… distracted ;)  let me know what works for you & I’ll do my best to tick all the boxes :)

Happy Scrapping!

If you make either or both of these projects (in Liberty or other scrappy goodness!) we’d love to see!

….. & after all that tutorial reading you deserve a treat :)

I have a few  scraps left over from my scrap pack which I need to share with a fellow scrap lover! Are you playing along with us?  Do you want a mini starter pack of luscious Liberty scraps ???? (there should be enough to get you started making some mini bunting)

Just leave a comment if you’re playing along and want a few scraps to get started! I’ll pick a random scrap lover on Wednesday morning (BrisVegas time)
