Flea Market Cushions

Liven things up a bit at home with an injection of "flea market chic"; cushions that are pretty and eclectic at the same time. You certainly shall never see another the same!

Available for sale:

ONE - Vintage garden.

This cushion is a scrumptious mix of vintage printed cottons, reproduction 1930's style cottons and painstakingly hand sewn English paper-pieced hexagons! Really pretty and fresh. It measures 16" x 16".


TWO - Spring Fever

Another generous 20" square cushion which took a gorgeous piece of vintage fabric adorned with sprays of tulips as its starting point. This has been combined with a lovely vintage hand-embroidered panel and more vintage cottons (with a bit of modern mixed in for a fresh touch). A string of hand-sewn English paper-pieced hexagons completes this pretty cushion. Perfectly pretty.


The Nitty Gritty

Each cushion comes with a new feather-filled cushion pad. I would recommend dry cleaning these cushion covers if required, as they feature patchwork and trimmings (but the choice is yours).

A discount of £4 will be made if you require only the cushion cover, without the feather insert. Please contact me for revised postal charges in this instance (sometimes useful for overseas customers, typically it will cost £3 to post only a cover overseas).

P&P add:
UK = £4
Overseas = £10

Sleepy Owls

Can you possibly resist these cute little owly faces? Each owl is crafted from cosy and cuddly flanelette (certainly brings back warm memories) with their eyes and tummy patch in pretty florals and spots and feet and beaks in toning felts. Their eye lashes are hand stitched.

Generously stuffed with new fluffy polyester fibrefill (conforms to current safety regulations), their appliqued patches are securely blanket or satin stitched.

Sleepy owl measures approximately 9" tall and 10" wide, perfect for little (and grown up!) arms to cuddle (just ask the Muchkin!)

Sleepy owl can be purchased for £20 plus P&P.


UK = £2.75
Europe = £3.50
USA/Rest of the World = £4.00

Is there an owl to whom you would like to give a home? Maybe...

3) A colour scheme if you choose (eg. pastel/bright/pink/blue etc).

Please note: I cannot send specific cards (it would simply take me ages to photograph them all!)
