New Floor and Scatter cushion designs on there way!

I have a few cushions I have been making over the last few weeks using my fabric designs. What do people think?

I am currently writing up my own catelogue which I will have ready by end of next week so here are a couple of photos that will be in it.

I love to decorate my home so designing a range of floor and scatter cushions is a real passion of mine. Along with all the hundreds of other home decor possibilities.

Fabric covered fridge magnets

Need a place to hang your latest cake recipe? Somewhere to pin up that weekly to do list? Or maybe a little sweet letter to your husband/wife?

My new fabric covered fridge magnet range is coming soon. They will be packaged individually with their own cello wrapping and card board label backing.

They will be sold seperately at selected stockists.

Also, check out the range of magnet wall paint now available through Dulux in a selected colour range. Such a trendy idea for a kitchen - paint a banner of magnetic paint and stick up some of these awesome fabric covered buttons with all your latest recipes!

Polyester vs Feather Foam Inserts

Just some small info regarding cushion inserts and the best alternative that I think you should choose:

Polyester is a plastic fibre mix which is a cheaper alternative to the feather or down mixture for cushion inserts. I will offer a polyester cushion insert for my cushion range but I dont recommend it as the best option.

You can not wash a polyester cushion insert as it will go lumpy and you wont ever get it back into that plump state. After time the polyester cushion also becomes quite flat and lifeless and wont show off the design as well as what it did when you first bought it. They are a lot lighter and softer, and you sort of dont feel as if they are there when you lean on them.

The feather and foam mix which is a more expensive option is better because of its quality. You will have this insert a longer lifetime then the polyester option. It is firmer and plump and can be moulded easiely back into shape. It can also be washed and the shape wont change, and it wont become flatter with age. The cushion will always look like a new feature wherever it is placed.

So when choosing a cushion insert think first about the quality and how long you will be wanting this cushion displayed in your home.

Its Arrived! My new cushion range

Check out my new dandelion cushion range. More colour types will be added soon and you will see my cushions in a few stockists in the near future.

They are made with 100% linen which is a renewable resource and friendly to the environment. It has been hand screen printed using environmentally friendly inks and hand sewn in my own studio.

This cushion will be available in either polyester stuffing or a feather and foam mix.

I was loving making them and they have come up really good, Im thinking I will also print in black, red and grey tones.
