Day Twenty-Seven

Happy Easter..!

Union Jack Cushion by Red Bird Makes

Hello...I hope you are all well and truly getting stuck into your Easter weekend whatever you may be up to. I've been fairly productive in that last night I finally got stuck into making my Union Jack cushion that I've been putting off for months. It is going to be featured in the Bath Life magazine in a couple of weeks time for the special Queen's Jubilee edition, so keep and eye out for it if you're in the Bath Area!! It will obviously also be making it's appearance in 'Charlie Boots' (online & highstreet shop) and my other online outlets after this bank holiday! I'm also working on the 'Teapot Stamp' cushion & it's sisters, so keep watching... I think this would make perfect set for a British summer garden party or picnic don't you think? 

Made from 100% recycled felt made from post consumer plastic bottles! We at Charlie Boots believe in sustainability, so when you buy this cushion you'll know that not only was the felt sourced from here in the UK, but it has been made using recycled materials and was also handmade by me. So do your bit to support handmade, buy handmade!

I do find it ridiculous the amount of bottled water people consume, when we in Britain are lucky enough to have a brilliant water system and we can access perfectly clean and tasty tap water for drinking - so there's really no need to buy it in bottles.
