How to extend LVM partition on Fedora 27?

My Fedora 27 workstation PC froze, and when I rebooted it said:

Low Disk Space on "home"
The volume "home" has only 0 bytes disk space remaining.
You may free up some space by emptying the trash.

I emptied the trash, and now I want to extend "home".

Here is may failed attempt to extend the "home": Boot Fedora live OS from USB (the same live OS I used to install the system). Then navigate to "Advanced partition (Blivet)".

Here is a screenshot of "Samsung SSD 840" showing plenty of free space: image description

"fedora" 32.82 GiB and "fedora00" 47.83 GiB are on "Samsung SSD 840". Only "fedora" is being used, "fedora00" can be deleted. Here is a screenshot of the "fedora": image description

I want to extend "fedora-home" from 5 GiB to 20 Gib.

So I right-click on "fedora-home" > Edit > Resize. When I click "Resize", Blivet immediately crashes and the live OS desktop appears.
