Rachel made me an absolutely stunning Christmas cushion from my daughter's Christmas clothes from her first 3 Christmases. She was extremely well organised, with a few questions to find out what pieces were extra special and she has such a good eye for detail, she sent me photos of every phase of the making and I couldn't be happier with the result, I'm now collecting the Christmas outfits from my new daughter to have another cushion for her in a few years x

Rachel took on board my wishes for the clothes I’d painstakingly picked out. The finished item was way more than I could ever have imagined - the placement of particularly sentimental items, I couldn’t have wished for better.

I bought this pattern to make a gift for my niece. I’ve never followed a pattern before so was a little nervous but there was no need to be. (I actually messaged Rachel to check the instructions would be simple enough for me!)
Easy to follow with pictures and also includes a link for you to go online and follow instructions too. I’m so pleased with my make and really chuffed that I made it myself. Would definitely recommend and it’s the perfect lockdown hobby.
