A simple home is deserving of attractive accessories that provide comfort and utility – things that add pleasure to our daily lives. I make the things I like with quality, natural materials that will last a very long time. I hope that you’ll like them, too! πŸ™‚

Blue green white hot water bottle coverBlue & green stripes hot water bottle cover, $24.00
Add to cart

I knit this cotton hot water bottle cover with a tied turtle neck that stretches to insert your bottle. Its stripes are a turquoisy-blue, variegated green and white, and plain white cotton yarn – machine washable & dryer safe. (I wear an oven mitt when filling the bottle so I don’t burn my fingers.)

On cold and snowy winter nights, a cup of herbal tea, a good book and your hot water bottle will help you feel warm and cozy. I use mine on frosty nights to warm up my bed before I get in or on my lap when knitting or reading. (When I use it behind my back, I don’t use as much hot water so it’s a bit flatter.) A simple home in northern climes needs a hot water bottle or two!

Fits a standard sized hot water bottle, approximately 10.5″ x 7.75″ excluding the turtle neck.

A cotton hot water bottle cover in green and white, with a tied turtle neck that stretches to insert your bottle. Machine washable & dryer safe. (I wear an oven mitt when filling the bottle so I don’t burn my fingers.)

A simple old-fashioned hot water bottle seems to ease everyday stress and lull me to relaxation; I think it’s the soothing feeling (physical and mental) that warmth equals comfort. I use mine on frosty nights to warm up my bed before I get in and on my lap when knitting or reading. (When I use it behind my back, I don’t use as much hot water so it’s a bit flatter.)

Fits a standard sized hot water bottle, approximately 10.5″ x 7.75″ excluding the turtle neck. The joint on the back where I joined the ‘circle’ isn’t quite as neat as I’d like (inset picture).

 

 

Pair of cushion coversPair of throw cushion covers, $60.00
Add to cart

These two lovely cushion covers on a natural coloured ground with green leaves are made with a linen/cotton blend fabric and plush cotton fringe. They’re a perfect fit for a nature lover’s gift or your own home for a comfortable, natural decor that evokes a quiet hush like a walk in the woods.

The larger cover fits an 18″-20″ cushion form and the smaller a 14″-16″ (forms not included). The backs (see inset picture) have an envelope-style opening for inserting the forms.

These throw cushions fit in with many styles, especially those that are striving for a restful, natural decor in their simple home. Bring the outdoors in!

Machine washable.

Ticking-&-lace-cushion-coverTicking Pillow Cover with Vintage Lace and Fringe, $40.00
Add to cart

This ticking pillow cover is made from dark blue and white cotton mattress ticking, with a pretty vintage hand-crocheted lace piece sewn on. A vintage 1970s fringe frames the pillow.

I’ve hand-sewn the lace with tiny stitches.

The cushion cover is 17″ x 16″ to fit an 18″ pillow form (form is not included). The back is the same fabric with an envelope-style opening for inserting the form.

Pair-of-Nautical-Cushion-CoversPair of Nautical Cushion Covers, $65.00
Add to cart

A pair of nautical pillow covers in red, white and blue with real rope cording for your cottage decor, boat or living room sofa. The fabric depicts ships, boats, anchors, lighthouses and other maritime themes, and both cushions are embellished with a tiny anchor charm.

The covers fit 20″ and 16″ square pillow forms (not included). The backs are the same fabric with an envelope-style opening for inserting the forms. They are offered as a set of two.

The quality 100% vintage cotton fabric, ‘Sailing Days,’ is by Schumacher (the parent company of Waverly), with blocks of red and white, blue anchor circles and rope. I’ve stitched real rope cording around the pillows. The fabric, although vintage, has not been used before.

Perfect gift for a nautical decor, a sailor and for your lakeside cottage, or any room that could use a reminder of summer adventures on the water. Of course, they’d also be perfect for the cabin of a real boat!

I recommend hand washing because of the rope cording. The fabric is washable, but I’m afraid that the cording wouldn’t withstand the rigors of a machine.

Personalized Book Thong, $12.00

Made to order with two or three initials. Pairing a book and a personalized bookmark that includes beads with the recipient’s initials makes a meaningful and lasting gift for book lovers (incuding you!).

17.5″ to 18.5″ long, including the tassel.

These unusual book marks will keep the page in large and small books.

Choices:
1) Red, green, yellow or natural colour crochet cotton.
2) Two or three initials

****Let me know in the “special instructions” section on the cart order form which two or three initials you’d like, and which colour(s).

I also make these book thongs with beads instead of initials. See below.

Add to cart

A pretty crocheted flower pin cushion adds a simple pleasure to your sewing or mending! Perfect gift for sewers and a great stocking stuffer for Christmas, too. A little over 4″/10.5 cm across.

I crocheted these pincushions from remnant sock yarn, sewed a vintage button in the centre on each side & stuffed them with polyester stuffing.

They’re the same on top and bottom – a pretty sewing accessory and alternative to those tomato/strawberry pincushions!
