Happy Customer Photos

Time for a look at some more of your cute photos featuring my products.

secret crochet club - thepurplefoxboutique

Let’s start with something fun I was involved in last year – the Secret Crochet Club’s December subscription box! I made a special turquoise version of my Snowflake card for the boxes, which turned out really cute. It was fun seeing photos pop up on Instagram – this one is by Purple Fox Boutique. If you’re into crochet, this looks like a box worth subscribing to so check out the Secret Crochet Club for more info.

bunny and panda pyjamas - photo by Grace

I love a customer request so when Grace asked if I could make a red version of my Snow Bunny & Snow Panda fabric for her to sew into Christmas pyjamas for her niece, how could I say no? The finished pyjamas look really cute and I’m glad to say her niece loved them. The fabric is in my Spoonflower store now if you fancy making some yourself.

kawaii space iphone case

And finally, a very old photo that I keep forgetting to post. My dad got one of my Outer Space phone cases from Redbubble for his birthday (not from me!) and I got a quick photo. I was really impressed with the print quality on this one as the artwork has a lot of texture and detail. Cute packaging too! Redbubble is a great option if you’re in the UK as the phone cases are quite affordable, good quality and you don’t risk customs fees.

Seeing your photos honestly makes my day so please share yours with me – just tag @marcelinesmith on Instagram, share on my Facebook page, or leave a photo with your order feedback using the Etsy app.
