...and here are a few of our crafty customers' creations: from cushions, through handbags all the way to little girls' dresses!
Our lovely customer Angela made this beautiful tote bag using our sewing machine tea towel
. She added a touch of colour by colouring the bunting in with textile pens. How clever is that?
Angela says: 'These are so lovely! I am going to make a tote bag. Thought I'd try to colour in the bunting with Frixion permanent marker to see what it looked like, think it's worked'.
Elaine made this lovely cross-body bag using our pretty printed fabric
Elaine: 'Finally finished my bag in this wonderful Poppy Treffry fabric. The fabric is excellent quality and love how it's turned out ,think I will have to buy a different fabric hoping it's sold in store can't wait to visit the St Ives and Padstow stores'.
This lovely dress was made by Rachel who cleverly incorporated our fox terrier fabric
to create a beautiful contrasting part of this gorgeous girls' dress.
Rachel said: After buying material way back in august on my yearly trip to St ives, i have finally decided what to make with this fantastic print. Child's age: 2 years.
Good luck with your creations and do let us know what you've made this autumn!
