Chevrons or Zig Zags – we love them!

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

zig zag cushions

cushion on green chair

At Fabric Rehab we love chevrons and zig zags, so we thought we’d show you some cushions we had made by Caroline, the very talented seamstress.  As you can see, she has done a lovely job – and has even pattern matched the chevrons front to back!   The edges have been piped with ecru and burnt orange linen. Soon you will be able to come and have a look at these cushions in situ at our new showroom – but more on that in early 2014…..

Rendall & Wright

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

These gorgeous Christmas decorations and cushions have been produced by Lindsey and Helen, the duo behind the Suffolk based interior furnishings company – Rendall & Wright.

3 cushions3 cushions1

I love that all 3 cushions really compliment each other, they would look great together on a sofa.  Lindsey and Helen used fabrics from our Alexander Henry ‘Farmdale’ collection.  I thought the cushions looked so plump and sumptuous – a tip from Lindsey is to use a feather cushion pad a couple of inches bigger than your cushion cover to achieve the same look.

Who wouldn’t want one of these hanging from the Christmas tree filled with chocolate coins?!  The girls made these lovely cone Christmas decorations using a range of fabrics from our Funky Christmas range.

If you’d like to meet Lindsey and Helen and see their gorgeous range of goodies they will be at the following festive fairs in Suffolk:-

Edwardstone Christmas fair – Friday 5th November 9.30am – 1pm
Elizabeth Hospice Fair – Thursday 18th November 9.30am – 3.30pm
Ipswich School Christmas fair – Friday 19th November 12.00pm – 5.00pm
Homewood House Christmas fair – Friday 26th November 2.00pm – 7.30pm

Giraffe quilt

Since the arrival of Alfie I’ve been thinking about lots of baby projects.  I happened to mention to my mother-in-law that I’d love a quilt for his cot,  I’d ear marked some fabric I wanted to use, and a couple of days later this lovely quilt appeared!  Unfortunately this fabric has been discontinued but we have a lovely animal print ‘Funky Jungle’ that would make lovely quilts.

cupcake teddy

Look at this truly scrumptious  ‘Cupcake Teddy’ that one of our Fabric Addicts has made using Pink Cupcakes for her friends baby girl - who could resist!   Take a look here for more lovely bears by Abby at Bubs Bears.  If any of you would like to send in pictures of projects, please do, we love posting them on our blog for others to see.
