She has used fabrics from my ebay shop  and website to make cushions, dress 1940s and 50s dolls and to line purses and kindle cases. She also makes delightful blackberry cases which she  knits using pure wool and fastens with vintage or made buttons.

These beautiful cushions were made by Marie Goldstaw of  William Morris Cushions. 

Marie has been buying pieces of fabric from my ebay shop  for a while now and I often wondered what the finished products would be like, lovely aren’t they?

Marshwood a design from Hardy’s Fabrics.

..and what a great way to make a wooden garden seat comfortable, Marie has used Ashley Wilde pink floral fabric to make the inviting looking cushions.
