A Summer Season Full of Custom Made Projects

This summer was probably my busiest on record. I was able to work around the many chauffeured activities of my kids, vacation and other leisure time fun.

I taught 10 art classes for students at the Daily Grind Coffee Shop and was featured in a small article in the Indianola Record Herald. (see previous post).

I also increased the inventory of hand dyed jackets in my Etsy Store. I am happy to say I have sold a few.

My most successful venture has been doing custom cushions and pillows for clients that have contacted me through my Etsy Store. The arrangements have worked out very well. Here are a few pictures.

Another fun-filled school year is about to begin. I look forward to new adventures in art. I hope to still fit in a few custom projects during the school year.

Custom Made Bench Seat Cushion

This is a custom made bench seat cushion. It is made to order for this bench. It is an example of a custom made cushion that I can make for you.

This cushion was made custom for this bench using 3.5" high-density foam. I also wrapped it with a layer of batting for extra padding. The cushion also has welting/piping trim on the top and bottom seams in the same fabric as the cushion. I can make welting in a contrasting fabric as well.  Prices vary depending on size.  This one is listed in my ETSY shop for custom orders.
