New Customised Lavender Cushion

Last week it was my friends birthday and i decided to have a go at making her a lavender cushion with one  of my owls on! I'm really happy with the result, especially how it looks sitting on her bed next to her other cushions and bear, cute.

I decided to use a natural linen as a base as i am into quite a neutral and earthy colours. Then i chose a vintage black and white dogtooth pattern for the back. I transferred the owl onto the fabric using heat transfer and i love the result, i was quite dubious about the finish this method would leave but its really neat and professional. After sewing the pieces together i filled the owl with toy filling and dried lavender from the garden. He smells lovely!

As you can see i placed Alex's name on the cushion beneath my burrowing owl just to make the gift extra special. When buying for others i always go for gifts that are slightly personal so i thought that making them totally customisable would be brilliant and the perfect treat for any owl lover.

I can make cushions with any Night Owl design or if you have something else in mind get in touch by commenting below or emailing me at, i'd be happy to help.

This owl cushion would be priced at £12.50, you can hopefully see the approx size from the photos. The price also includes the personalised name.


  1. I absolutely adore your designs. Will definitely be making a few purchases when I'm all moved in and the student loan has rolled into my account. I love the personalization as well, it makes a gift so much more special :) You will be my next weeks design Sunday I think ! <3 Molly xo
