Swatch Portraits at the Purl Bee

While perusing the blogosphere I came across The Purl Bee. Oh what a feast to the eyes! It's a paradise for those who love sewing, knitting, crochet, Liberty of London fabrics, beautiful girly crafts in general. Absolutely gorgeous. Their newly opened shop Purl Shop in New York must be amazing, they offered macarrons for their grand opening, yum! 
In their store they have a full wall of these goodies:



FUN? So I decided to go ahead and make my own. The instructions can also be found at The Purl Bee and it seems so easy! I picked up some fabrics off Ebay from Liberty, such an incredible selection!! 


I'll show you when it's done. If you are in NY and haven't been to the Purl Shop I think you should definitely check it out (and let me know) :) Look at the cutest ever map Lena Corwin made especially for them.

  23. Me encanta esa forma de poner las telas en bastidores de bordar, yo quiero hacerlo con las mías pero hay de algunas que no tengo ni un retalito...
    :-(

    Bueno y las telas de Liberty sencillamente son preciosas, las quiero tooooodas!

    (veo todo en inglés... espero que me entinedas asi)

    Besos!
