I've been looking forward to September's Coast magazine, always a lovely read around the British coastline and a celebration of our very special seaside. Taking a peek at the contents page, who do I spy...

Whoop! The edition featuring my souvenir makes with the Seaside Sisters is out at last!

The lovely Clare from Coast magazine contacted us about running a feature on things you can make with tea towel.  This is just the sort of project we like, so we were super chuffed to be invited to share some of our favourite projects with Coast readers.  We are very partial to seaside souvenirs and these projects show you how to make your own holiday souvenirs from the humble tea towel.

Once the final four designs were decided on, we spent a day with the talented Coast team on location shooting our four tea towel projects. The location was a beautiful house filled with rooms adorned with light and texture. Seeing the work that goes into product shots was impressive and we are very grateful to Mel, Joe and Yvonne for the care and creativity that went into the photos. 

All four projects for making a cushion, apron, bunting and bag are in the September issues of Coast magazine.  You can see more of our coastal crafting on the Seaside Sisters website and tea towel souvenir workshops are planned with Crafty Pint in the autumn.  You can even buy the ready made made projects featured in Coast - take a peek here and here.
