I’ve been a little behind with sharing Etsy updates on my blog lately. I seem to have released a bunch of new things all at once but haven’t found the time to write up a post about each of them. I’m much more active on my Instagram so if you haven’t already joined me over there and are interested in what I’m making, please do give me a follow!
I’ve been sat on this printed cotton for absolutely ages (possibly a couple of years now?!) and have finally turned it into something. I originally designed this cute little house/ cabin pattern back in university for a portfolio piece and never did anything else with it. I eventually got it printed on to cotton with Spoonflower when George thoughtfully gave me a voucher one Christmas. We played around with a couple of design ideas but nothing really stuck, until a few weeks ago when we came up with these lovely cushion covers. You can view them both on Etsy right here.
I’m seriously loving the outcome of these cushions and the way I’ve used this minimalist print that I designed so long ago. Most of the decorative pillows in my shop rely on their details and characteristic features to make them so quirky and unique, but I love that the print does the talking here. As you can see I used my staple coconut buttons, which are usually the eyes for my owls, and corduroy fabric so that they fit perfectly alongside the rest of my designs.
It was only when I was photographing these that I realised how “Scandinavian” or “Nordic” they look in design, and so I immediately searched Pinterest for suitable homes and interiors that I could imagine my cushions being a part of. Below are a small selection of my favourites.
“Scandinavian design is a design movement characterised by simplicity, minimalism and functionality..”
What do you think of these new cushion covers? They make a super cute pair, if I do say so myself!
