Pompom Trim – Fabric Trimmings

The Stripes Company velvety soft pompom trim made of 100% cotton comes in lots of different colours to coordinate with our stripe fabrics.

You will be amazed how fabulous they look edging blinds, curtains, pelmets, cushions and soft furnishings.

They wash beautifully at 30 degrees and each run of different colour bobbles is secured to tape which may be stitched into seams.

Grosgrain Ribbon – Add a dash of colour and style!

Summer hat trimmed with The Stripes Company grosgrain ribbonStand out from the crowd by adding a splash of colour to your favourite hat with our *NEW* grosgrain ribbon.

Whether you are going to Ascot races or just pottering about in the garden you can truly bring your hat to life!

Use ‘Stitch Witch: Fusible Bonding Web’ and a few tacking stitches to bond the two edges of ribbon together. Hide the join with a loop of ribbon or a bow.  If adding a jute flower it is best to stitch into place using double thread.Striped Grosgrain Ribbon on Top hat
