Liberty sewing project

When I receive an email from Liberty asking me to do a guest post, I always do a little leap for joy. For past guest posts I have made advent calendar bunting and a travel highchair and this time I decided to make a summer project with the beautiful Liberty fabric I was sent. I have had a bare deckchair frame for three years hanging around in my hallway cupboard. Every year I promise myself that I will bring it back to life and this year I have finally got round to it!

I oiled the frame and made a simple, plain sling. I then used the gorgeous Thorpe print fabric to make a headrest cushion. If you have a deck chair, you need to make one of these! It makes the chair sooooo much more comfortable.

I do hope you hop over to the Liberty craft blog to check out my tutorial. Here’s a sneak peek…


Happy lounging!

    This is such a gorgeous project. I am totally in love with the Thorpe fabric you have chosen. I’d like to make a dress from it too!

    This is so pretty and looks quite an easy project for a novice sewist like me! Thanks for the idea – I’ve got two deckchairs that this is perfect for!

    Love this – such a clever idea! I actually have some of this fabric in the form of an abandoned (way to difficult) dress project – you’ve inspired me to put it to better use! x

      Maybe a little baby project, Chloe? Can’t be long now? x
