New pillows, sidetrack + GIVEAWAY WEEK!

The Autumn light in our room this morning was wonderful, so I set about taking these photos of our bedroom (this is the side track)...

I could have sat in here for hours. Then I realised I needed to show you all my new creations for the Etsy Shoppe.....



TA DA!!!
My new Oat Sack pillows. These are way bigger than the Flour Sack ones and they come filled!
This one was soaked in Green Tea for 2 days before I printed it. It is all done by hand (no screen printing) with the aid of a stencil I made. I have used Navy Eco friendly ink and used my Signature design in with it.


TA DA x 2!!!
This is printed on an old white fabric I have had for about 10 years+. It has a really nice pattern through it (you might be able to see it). I have used chocolate brown ink for the print and the navy blue for the stripes. The stripes go all the way around this cushion (the others back is plain)...and it is filled as well. I am just going to find out what you all think of these, then I will work out whether I am going to make these as a filled cushion/pillow all the time, or whether they will be a cover. It is cheaper for you overseas for just the cover.
So I would LOVE to know what you think. I adore them!
Oh, you may have noticed the beautiful Autumn light had vanished by the time I got to taking the photos for these =0.
Don't forget to leave a comment to go into the draw for my giveaway!!! If you don't have a blog or url, can you leave your name so I know who you are if you win please. Ta!

  4. Beautiful fabric for your beds pillows. Was that a vintage find?
    Can you make the cushions for your Ebay shop with a zip or buttons so that your can offer the option either way? I would think the innards would come in a standard size here and there. Just a thought....
    You are doing great work Ness. Keeps me inspired and working towards my goals. :) Thanks, Irene.

  6. The cushions look real good, they kind of remind of 'cornish-ware' - which if you dont know are thoose blue and white kitchenwear items.

  8. This is very exciting Ness. I love them! especially the bird cushion. Can't help you decide wether to fill or not to fill. Either way, I'm sure they'll walk out the door! Hayley.
