Welcome to Designs on Cushions. 


Many thanks for visiting Designs on Cushions,  I make cushions for almost every significant event in my client’s life stories which  has given me a wealth of experience and insight that I bring to each heirloom cushion. School cushions have celebrated everything from those very first days in nursery and the move to “big school” as well as highlighting sporting events, exam years,

Guides and Scouts, 6+ and 7+, transitions at 11+ and 13+, senior school, 6th form, university and medical school!

You can choose from the using cherished items of clothing or a unique to you personalised linen cushion.

My normal working time for cushions, is 5 - 8 weeks as all orders are bespoke and handmade by myself in my garden studio.

Orders for Memory Cushions are now being taken for completion in 2022.

I look forward to cherishing your memories,  Julia x


Our patchwork cushions are made to order and can be used to create and cherish memories, be it school days, babyhood, a loved one or a special time in life.


Each strip  tells a story, with schools days: from the grass stain on the cricket whites to the prefect’s tie, forming  a unique record of your child’s time at his or her school. Baby cushions reminding you of favourite outfits.


Our bespoke cushions are handmade to order out of high-quality 100% linen. 


By adding your choice of embroidered lettering you can make your cushion into a unique gift that will celebrate those special occasions in everyone’s lives.
