We think these wildlife cushions by Isabel Rogers www.isabelrogers.co.uk are simply adorable; a lovely way to bring a bit of the British countryside into the living room. We had a chat with Isabel, and now we know more about them, we love them even more.
She told us how she sketches iconic or threatened British species in ink pen, and then has her drawings printed onto fabric before whipping up an envelope cushion by hand, even using French seams for a finish to be proud of. If that’s not enough, Isabel is planning to donate a percentage of her profits to a British wildlife conservation charity. We actually found them on Folksy www.folksy.com/shops/1irogers, and think they’re a snip at £11 each. Perhaps we’ll leave the cushion-making endeavours for the bedroom revamp.
