Jane Foster's vintage fabric children's cushions

Have really enjoyed returning to some sewing this half term by making these bright, fun children's cushions using vintage Miffy fabric along with 70s and retro cottons. Available now from my website here.
For those of you who may miss my previous cushion site, I shall be listing more vintage fabric cushions on my main site over the next few weeks.

Nautical theme going on in Jane Foster's home

I'm noticing an increasing nautical theme going on in our home - we've been visiting our wonderful Devon beaches most weekends and I love looking for the various shells, striped pebbles and tumbled glass one can find. Our dream would be to one day live by the sea but because we don't, we've created a beach style deck here instead where I imagine the sea is just beyond our back gate! We've painted our new shed white and added a shallow shelf for my daughter's and my striped pebble and shell collection. (But I'm not allowed to make Scandinavian flowery curtains when it gets a window!)
