Whimsical Fair was created by enterprising Melbourne-based mum-of-two Rebecca, after her hunt for beautiful cushions found the mainstream offerings lacking. So of course she had to make her own! In today’s post I’m featuring two beautiful floral cushions made with love by Rebecca.
Rebecca has a keen eye for quirky and unique prints, which has lead to her searching everywhere (from the US to Japan and beyond!) to find fabric to turn into the most amazing cushions! She buys her fabric in small quantities so you can guarantee that your order will be limited edition, and that you definitely won’t spot the same cushion in your local home store. Whimsical Fair has plenty of fabrics to choose from – over 55 in fact! These include floral, novelty, gothic, and animal prints, and Rebecca can do custom listings too. Every cover is 45 x 45cm and fully handmade, and they feature a side zip for ease of washing.
I adore a bold floral print, and so the gorgeous Betty Merle cushion caught my eye straight away. The cushion is named after Rebecca’s grandmother and features large purple blooms on a light emerald background. Each cushion is made with a coordinated backing, and the Betty Merle cushion has a navy backing which ties in with the shading in the flowers. It was so kind of Rebecca to send a second cushion as well, which features delicate pink and yellow flowers with a coordinating pink backing, and this is also on a light emerald background which ties the two cushions together.
You can purchase directly via the Whimsical Fair website, or look out for Rebecca at a market near you if you live in the Melbourne area! You can choose from buying the 100% cotton cover only, or add an Australian made Lofty insert (non-woven polypropylene outside with a white hypoallergenic resilient fibre inside) or a Luxx insert (100% cotton outer filled with 100% duck feathers). Prices start from around $36.95AUD (cushion cover only), and you can expect to add about $10AUD for the Lofty insert or $15AUD for the Luxx insert. Rebecca will post all over the the world, starting at a flat rate of $7.45AUD for items sent within Australia.
