I custom designed this lovely little quilted and embellished desk mat for a dear friend of mine.
I made her one about 3 years ago and she loved it and used it and wore it out, so she asked me to make her another.
These are so much fun to do and you can choose any number of my fabric blocks listed to create just the perfect custom designed one of a kind shabby cottage chic styled desk mats just for you!!!
Price will vary depending upon size, how many prints are chosen...etc. If you are interest in having one of these sweet desk mats made please contact me for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply leave me a comment here on my blog.
This mat was finished on both sides so she can change it over depending upon her mood that day!! I can do one for you this way or with just one side embellished and one side plain.
This one measured 20" x 11" as she requested it to fit on her desk just perfectly. The price for one similar to this is $35 plus shipping.
I offer many varieties of fabric blocks, mainly vintage and antique print reproductions on 100% premium cotton that has been color treated. My friend said that she washed the first mat I made for her many many times over the 3 years she has used it.
I make all of my items with quality and durability in mind so that you can enjoy them for years to come. I fully line these mats, my pillows and other items with white cotton flannel and triple stitch all the seams for added durability.
Here it is my latest pillow design for my ebay store: J.Rae's Shabby Cottage Designs.
This one features a lovely print by Victorian era artist Frances Brundage. What a lovely young lady all dressed in her finest attire. I used a beautiful cotton fabric featuring roses and stripes, then trimmed it in dark pink grosgrain ribbon that I folded to create a wonderful effect. I used a vintage pink chenille for the back and trimmed the gorgeous one of a kind creation with a pink feather boa.
Every now and then I just feel the need to trim my pillows with something new and different that the usual fringe, lace or hand made ruffles...So this one ended up with the feathers! I just love it!!! If you are interest in this pillow or seeing some of my other creations visit my ebay store with the link to the right!
