Pillows by Tif, Dottie Angel

Tif sells “handcrafted, vintage, eclectic, original, recycled, goodness” like these pillows in her Dottie Angel shop. She wrote about the pillows here. Her cushions are made from recycled vintage, retro and found fabrics (as are all of the wares she handcrafts). Tif also has a new book coming out this summer, published by UPPERCASE, covering her life, family and crafting.

  2. Tif says:

    thank you all my dearies for your kind comments!

    the large floral fabric you see in the cushions came from a wonderful pair of retro curtains i picked up on my last trip home to England. i have used every scrap even the faded areas ๐Ÿ™‚
    the lining has been repurposed into cloth i use for embroidering my stitched words which i then applique onto wall hangings…

    the bench is mid century, pickd up from a sunday flea market, i made a simple slipcover out of various bark cloths in similar styles, patched together and then upon the top are doilies appliqued

    the little fisher price souls found me, both are in a very loved condition but they are so sweet and bring back lovely memories for me… so i fell for their charms and now they reside at mossy shed with me and my clan

    hope that answers any questions and again thank you for your kind responses, have a peachy week my dears ๐Ÿ™‚
