Sew Darn Inspiring: Linen and Liberty

YAY!!! We are pleased as punch to inform you that our very own range of Linens have finally arrived at The Strawberry Thief warehouse!

Liberty and Linen really is the most delicious combination… We have tried very hard to select a diverse range of colours that will not only be beautiful when used by themselves but are also very complimentary to our favourite Liberty fabrics.

The Strawberry Thief Linen

View the full range here!

.

Made from 100% Linen and weighing 165 grams, our Linen is very fine and light weight – making it soft and durable enough for both quilting and clothing.

.

Remember: Linens need to be given a good wash before use, and pressed with a product like Best Press for best results. They tend to have a bit of movement in them!

.

Look at how beautiful these colourful Linens look next to some of our fave Liberty prints –

This flying geese quilt would be beautiful using different coloured linens – with one or two sections featuring a liberty print to really make it POP! Source

      Thank you Carolann! Sounds like a familiar story! Hehe! I have started to sort my projects out in to clear tubs so I can just grab which ever one I feel like working on for a particular day, it does help!
