A new product line for Mrs Plop's Shoppe - Country Chic Hand Painted Hare Cushion With Ticking Fabric

Ok, I know it's not felting, but Mr Plop and I are very proud of our new product line. This is hand-painted by myself, not printed, so each one is completely unique and one of a kind.

When I finish the painting part, it's over to Mr Plop who does the sewing bit. Fab! because sewing really isn't my forte, but luckily Mr Plop is an expert! His ancestry is in the textile trade, his Grandparents owned a haberdashers shop and he was taught to sew when he was very young.  Oddly, my ancestors were in the textile trade too! I only found out recently that my ancestors on my Father's side were all in the trade in the North of England. It's a shame I didn't inherit their finesse with a sewing needle, but I guess my roots have shown up in a roundabout way with my needle felting.

If you would like to order one of these cushions, you can see the listing in my Etsy shop here: OOAK Hand Painted Hare Cushion by Mr and Mrs Plop


  1. I love it! The striped ticking makes a great background to your superb painting. How wonderful that it's a joint venture too.

    1. Thank you so much Lyn! We loved making it!
