We know our lovely customers and fans of Poppy Treffry are a very talented lot. If you look through social media (#poppytreffry), you will find a lot of beautiful creations made using our fabrics (and even our tea towels)! Here are some of our favourites that would make a lovely Mother's Day gift you could make yourself.
1. Framed Tea Towels
We often overhear comments in our shops about how lovely our tea towels are and how you'd almost feel guilty using them on dishes. Well here's an idea of what you could do with them instead: frame them! There are so many lovely pictures on Instagram posted by our followers, proudly showing off their framed Poppy Treffry tea towels.
Here are just a few gorgeous examples we've found and we think they would make a lovely, thoughtful but also inexpensive Mother's Day gift:
2. Pretty Bags made using our Fabulous FabricsIf you're quite handy with your sewing machine and would like to make something unique that no other mum will have, why not make a lovely handbag using our ever so popular fabrics. The good thing is, you can use your own imagination and creativity to design a bag that you know your mum will love! Let's have a look at some pretty bags made by our lovely customers... Note the cute sewing machine tote bag; the lovely lady used our Sewing Machine tea towel and coloured it in with fabric pens to give it a bit of oomph! What a great idea! There's also a full tutorial on how to make a cross body messenger bag like the Labrador one in the picture and you can find it here.
3. Lovely CushionsWe don't know about you (or your mum) but we are pretty obsessed with cushions! It doesn't matter if there are more cushions than the actual seating space, we just need more! If you think your mum might be one of 'us', making a lovely cushion for her would be a great idea and it's not that difficult either. You can use your favourite fabric, an old shirt, one of our fabrics or again, even one of our tea towels! A full tutorial on how to make a pretty cushion can be found here.

Use our Labrador or Four Legged Friends tea towels instead. Cat lover? No problem, just use our lovely Top Cats one. There are plenty more pretty designs to choose from, to let your imagination run wild.
