Personalised Cushions 

Our PHOTO cushions are a great hit with all age groups. We make cushions for baby christenings, birthdays, anniveraries and 21st's. The images are really modern and, where appropriate, photos fit seamlessly with the artwork. It takes a little time from start to finish on the photo cushions (3 weeks) but trust us the wait is worth it!

–––– WE ALSO MAKE MEMORY CUSHIONS, BEARS and BUNNIES FROM CLOTHES SUPPLIED. Please email is on or call us on 087-1461673 for more details.

We can also make simple embroidered cushions for everyone and the metallic threads and funky artwork make them a great hit with everyone (these usually take 3-4days). All our cushions are overlocked with envelope fold on reverse and gift wrapped.  See also our *new personalised ribbon service* below.
