Gifts at Materialise

We have a lovely range of handmade gifts and christmas decorations in store at Materialise with the emphasis being on handmade. I get a bit tired of all the mass produced stuff at Christmas time.
 Here is a selection of some of our lovely Liberty wrapped baubles
 Some have been embellished with semi precious stones for a little bit of tasteful bling.
Make this fast and fun Christmas stocking. Easy to follow Pattern & Instructions is available 
Then fill it with cute and crazy little things such as this cool shower cap. Also available for big hair.
Many more gorgeous stocking fillers can be found like these little pin cushions, also pure linen aprons, tea towels and there is always a gift voucher if you can't decide. We also have handmade earrings and bracelets.
 I've made some Flea Market Style cushions using some of the beautiful Japanese fabrics we have in store. 
 Each cushion has a boho feature panel
 They are just simple and would make a beautiful gift for someone special and would look great in a contemporary home. So if you are looking for something you just can't find to finish off your Christmas shopping, come into Materialise......
Here is the artichoke in full bloom in my garden. The colours are electric and so inspiring.
Materialise will close for a Christmas break from Christmas Day and we will re-open again on Monday January 6th. 
Wishing you all a very merry and relaxing Christmas.

New Patterns

Just in time for Christmas we have two new patterns.... 
In stock now is the ever popular Frou-Frou Skirt. A favourite pick in many little wardrobes because it feels so nice for little girls to wear.  
The Little Lady Sundress caught the eye of many customers who came into the store and has been requested by many. The pattern for this frock will be available this coming Saturday. 
 I have made some subtle changes
 Improving the frock and making the finish on this dress one of my best so far. 
I have also included an option to make it into a top. I think it will look amazing with cute little shorts or jeans.
