Cushion making, it's Monkey Business

My best sellers at Custard Hall have been cushions. I just popped in today and found another two have gone off to new homes.
This month I've been topping up with a few more in vintage children's fabrics. I adore this barkcloth with blue koalas and monkeys playing on a bamboo type plant. It's really unusual and I've not seen it before. One of these has already sold in my etsy shop and is off to New Zealand.
Do you like my monkeys? I have a huge soft spot for old toys and these two I've had ages and wont be parting with. There's a boxful under my bed. I'll show you some more another day.
I only had a small piece of this animal fabric and with spring on the way thought it was time to use it.
 I've backed it in green wool.
 This pink toy fabric has been sat in my stash for ages and the need for cushion replenishment meant it's finally got to the top of the pile!
 Backed in pink wool.
Just some of the cushions I've made this year!
If there's anything you fancy pop over to my etsy shop.
 I've stocked up on fabrics today and got some more projects planned for half term, but looking at this lot possibly not cushions!
Have a lovely week.


  1. I've always wondered about the phrase 'boxful of monkeys'! Lovely cushions as always - I particularly like the first one with the koalas and monkeys on - do you ever wonder what might have been going through the designers minds?! Jane x

  2. Your fabrics are just gorgeous...... And you know I'm rather partial to a monkey or two myself!!!!x

  3. I love the fabric you use, actually I am very envious of the fabric you use. I have vintage fabric envy today ...
    happy weekend wishes

  4. You seem to catch the most wonderful fabric, love the kittie one! :) x

  5. Wow you have the most amazing things. The fabric is fabulous and the old toys are gorgeous. I dont think I would part with them either.

  6. I just love your cushions, no wonder they fly off the shelves. You eye for vintage pattern and colour is always spot on.
