A patchwork memory cushion will bring forgotten memories back into your life for you, or someone you love, to enjoy every day. Perhaps you will use much loved baby clothes, your favourite dress that’s now too small, or treasured clothes from a much-loved relative? Whatever you choose, I’ll work with you to create a stunning design, which I’ll then transform into a cushion for you to display in your home, or give away as a special gift to someone you love.
Your design can be further personalised with wording such as the person’s name, date of birth, or a favourite saying or quote. Simply add any wording that you want to appear on your cushion at the check-out. If you would like a quote, but you’re not quite sure where to find one, then let me know and I can find something for you that will fit with the memories, the person, and its new place.
You can also choose a back for your cushion from cream cotton, cream fleece, cerise cotton, baby pink fleece, blue cotton, navy fleece, purple fleece or leopard print fleece. A fleece back will give your memory cushion extra cuddle-power – ideal for beds and chill-out areas, whilst a cotton back will make your memory cushion crisp and keeps its shape well – ideal for kitchen benches and more formal seating ares.
These memory cushions are available in two sizes to suit the material you have, their new home, and your budget. Choose from small – 40x40cm or large – 50x50cm. Both are filled with a plump hollow-fibre inner.
Before I sew them up into your chosen memory cushion design, all stretchy fabrics are stabilised using iron-on interfacing so that they will keep their shape. I add a zip closure and a cotton lining to protect your precious fabrics.
All cushions can be wiped clean and most can be washed by hand at low temperatures, but this will depend on the material that you send me to use in the design for the front.
