Storybook Cushions

Storybook Cushions encourage young readers to tuck their bedtime read into a safe and treasured spot each day.

Whether it's a favourite, a familiar or a first-read , taking the book from their special cushion becomes a vital and anticipated part of the bedtime routine.

Below are some of the designs for the storybook cushion covers currently available. Each can be customised with names, colours, themes and so on using embroidery, applique or both. I’m adding new designs each week and can make almost any theme, excluding copyrighted characters unless I can find a suitable fabric.

Covers are either 40cm x 40cm (requiring a Size 16 insert) or 45cm x45cm (requiring a Size 18 insert.)

Each cover is $A35.00 plus packing and postage based on actual costs from Australia Post. (Including the insert makes postage exorbitant). Payment is by direct deposit only and details are provided when your package is posted.

Fabrics and colours may vary from those in the photographs depending on availability but if you have a preferred colour scheme such as predominantly blues, pinks, oranges and so forth then please indicate this.

Most designs can also be made into library bags. Library bags are $20.00 each, or $30.00 if personalised with the child's name.

For orders, delivery times and payment details please contact me using Storybook Cushion in the subject line and including

  • the name of the design
  • preferred colour scheme
  • names to be added if desired. (Please add $5.00 extra for this service).
