How about making this great bathroom tidy?
Step 1 - Take a large bag of rice and cover with the fabric, securing at the top with an elastic band. Trim excess material if required.
Step 2 - Add your decorative touch, such as these beautiful key tassels which we tied on.
At Fabric Mills we have loads of short ends, wonderful designer fabric off cuts. They are just perfect for 'make your own' projects. For the doorstop we used a chenille fabric and decorated the doorstop with contrasting key tassels (available from Fabric Mills). We also have lots of other trimmings and accessories to help you complete your project.
Is there anything more satisfying than creating your own Christmas stockings, advent calendars and decorations?! Yet again our wonderful customers have been hard at work.

Now Tor really is inspirational! We think you will agree that her wonderful 'bags of loveliness' are fantastic! As Tor admits she is addicted to her vintage hand-me-down sewing maching!
