Rather than have all yesterday's prints sitting around doing nothing, I wanted to sew some up to get a feel for how the designs I'd done were working. The designs I did were too large for pouches but were perfect for a cushion.
And because the designs were A4 they looked best for a 30 x 40cm cushion.


I love how they've come up. There are possibly a couple of tweaks here and there that I want to do in the design, but on the whole, considering they are my first proper real screen-printed produced item, I am over the moon.


Having now done these, it has really helped order my mind in what I want to produce and keeping things cohesive. I'm going to slow right down (yeah, yeah, heard it all before) and keep things simple.


In the meantime, these first original one of a kind screen printed cushions are right here...

I really love your new cushions! I usually tend to like neutral accessories / decor but I've seen so many lovely colourful fabrics and things lately online and via Twitter that I'm feeling the need for some colour in my life! :)
