Vintage Style Stitchy Postcards

Fun and original stitched postcards will bring brightness and cheer wherever you choose to place them: are you lucky enough to have your own camper van or beach hut; do you want a reminder on your sitting room wall of the time you spent in London or Paris; do you just think they're jolly groovy and you're going to find a place to put one!

Each stitchy postcard measures approximately 6" x 7.5" and hangs from a natural candy striped string. The postcard is sandwiched with cotton quilt batting. The main panel is vintage white linen which is adorned with an abundance of pretty applique flowers and scenes, vintage-style hand embroidery and perhaps some vintage or modern trims and buttons.

A lovingly hand-made one-of-a-kind stitchy postcard can be all yours for £18 (post included to mainland UK, plus £2 P&P anywhere else in the world).

Vintage Dinky Cushions

The choice is yours, these pretty little cushions can either be pretty and practical and function as a pin cushion or as they are filled with some ultra fragrant Provencal lavender (as well as polyfill to make them nice and bouncy), you can use them to scent your drawers or just to sit prettily.

One side has a lovely crocheted flower with a raised design, crafted from 100% natural yarns, and the reverse is made from beautiful vintage fabric.

Each measures approximately 5" square and is generously stuffed.

Vintage Union Jack Cushions

Rule Britannia! Jolly up your home or your garden with one of my super special and unique cushions inspired by the classic union jack. Each one is completely a one-off in the best possible way!

Each cushion has a stunning vintage fabric as its background in shades of classic blue. These fabrics originate from Europe and date to around 1930-'40. The stripes are in various pretty modern cotton prints and each has a finishing flourish with an eye catching central detail.

A feather-filled cushion pad is included (measuring 12" x 16"). The reverse of each cushion is made in white cotton with a vintage fabric feature strip and contrasting buttons to close securely.

£40 each plus P&P.

UK = £3.00
Europe = £4.00
Rest of the World = £6.00
