Cushions galore

Hello! Apologies for the radio silence on the blog for such a long time… It’s been a big year and now it’s almost over!

But before that it’ll be Christmas and there are lots of goodies in the Touch Wood Design Etsy store if you need to stock up for the silly season!

If you’d like to keep up with my adventures in sewing, pop over to the Touch Wood Design Instagram account.

A little bit Christmassy

One last cushion project to show off before the Christmas break… I made this new stamp cushion design for a wedding present – I think this highland stag came up really well, although the photo doesn’t quite capture the pretty turquoise of the background.

I’ll have to make more of this design next year, but I might change the background colour to the beautiful azure blue of the Scottish flag. He looks a little bit too Christmassy in his current colourway!

Big thank you

Thanks to everyone who dropped by to say hi at the GOMA Christmas Design Market last Saturday! After a sticky, humid morning we were very glad to feel the cool afternoon breeze – and see so many people carrying bags of handmade gifts!

As always, you can find my cushions over in the Touch Wood Design Etsy store and if there’s somthing you missed out on, you’re most welcome to send me a message and I can make another one for you.

Even more flower power

Red daisies this time around… or are they zinnias? More flower power for my cushion stall at the GOMA Christmas Design Market this Saturday 28 November outside the gallery at South Brisbane. The market will run from 9am to 4pm – hope to see you there!

More flower power for you! Got to love the clash of pink and red – I thnk this lumbar cushion is my new favourite!

You’ll find this and a bunch more one of a kind cushions at the Touch Wood Design stall at the GOMA Christmas Design Market outside the Gallery of Modern Art at South Brisbane on Saturday 28 November from 9am to 4pm.

Pineapple season

It’s less than three weeks until the QAGOMA Store Christmas Design Market, so I’ve been busy making new stock. I’m on a roll with lumbar cushions now – there’ll be a bunch of one-off designs like this quirky pineapple one at the Touch Wood Design stall. Hope to see you there!

Flower power

More flower power as I dig into the pile of felt offcuts and see what I can make with them! I think this is my new favourite design – happy daisies.

Waste not, want not

My Mum always advocates keeping sewing scraps, courtesy of living through hard times and because “you never know what you might be able to use them for” – and she is so right! I’m turning the leftover felt strips from my postage stamp cushions into some bright new lumbar cushions. As is the nature of these things, they’ll all be one-offs! Here’s the first one, featuring a tulip design.

A special occasion

I think I only make one of these German robin postage stamp cushions every 18 months or so – there are soooo many letters in ‘Deutsche Bundespost’ and when you’re cutting them out by hand it does take a while! Here he is, and you’ll find him over in my Etsy store.
