Jennifer draws out the illustrations herself and applies them to the fabric. From there she machine embroiders round the images to produce a black outline on the fabric, Kirsty Alsopp from “Kirsty’s Homemade Home” describes this process as the “crack cocaine of the craft world” and it really is addictive. She will then hand paint the images with insoluble paint so the cushions can be washed at a low heat. Every cushion has the trademark red heart etched on the surface somewhere on the cushion so everyone is able to tell that is a unique 'designer j' cushion.
