Spring cushions at Mini Magpie

Firstly, thank you all for your welcome back messages! It feels good to be blogging again and catching up with everyone.
Well I promised to show you what those pastel ribbons were for...
I've used them to trim the backs of some Spring cushions.
A major fabric tidy up and sort out in the autumn made me realise how many lovely vintage fabrics I had featuring baby animals. They get their own drawer in my cabinet! Laying them out together they are all very pastel coloured and Spring like.
I decided pastel stripes and coloured vintage wool would make nice contrasting backs.
So a batch of 5 have been run up for Mini Magpie at Poundbury.
Some used the final pieces of favourite fabrics I've had for years which is always a bit of a shame.
So that's enough of the backsides are you ready for the full frontals?
We have pink rabbits, lambs and ducks...
Beige calves, foals and bunnies
Lilac lambs, piglets and a frog
Cream mischievous ducklings
and yellow kittens, pugs and kids
So I think that pretty much covers every farm animal you can think of!
I've still a couple of other fabrics to cut and will be topping up my stock for a couple of Spring events (see my sidebar).
 I love them all. Which is your favourite?


  1. Your cuchions look great lined up on the sofa, it's hard to choose a favourite one..

  2. I have looked at them several times and still cant decide which is my favourite. I love them all!

  3. nice idea to trim the cushion backs with ribbons......all the animal cushions are lovely!

  4. Beautiful cushions, from the snuggly backs to the cutesy fronts! I wish I was 'doing out' a nursery so I could buy the lot!

  5. It is really hard using the last of lovely old fabrics up isn't it but look what a lovely thing they have turned into! I love them all too but he grasshopper one seems to evoke happy childhood memories for me for some reason x

  6. I love your cushions and I adore the backs just so perfectly finished x

  7. Love them all!
    Are you stalling out at Blandford?
