Stunning Cheshire Cat Cushion & Tea Towel by British Artist, Rory Dobner

The Cheshire Cat Cushion is screen printed on both sides with images taken from beautifully intricate ink drawings by British artist, Rory Dobner.  On one side the Cheshire cat can be seen sporting a very fine monocle, and on the other he’s removed his eye-piece to show off his amazing peepers to their full potential.

The Cheshire Cat Cushion measures 45cm x 45cm and is made from heavy-duty cotton with a feather filling (so not vegan-friendly I’m afraid).  Available for £95.00 from Rocket St George.

If (like me!) your home accessories budget doesn’t really extend to 95 quid cushions, fear not: the Cheshire cat and his monocle are also available in tea towel form for £14.00 – made from 100% linen and measuring a generous 75cm x 48cms.

Lovely, isn’t he?  And far too nice to do the drying up with.  I reckon that with the aid of some iron-on interfacing and a sewing machine you could easily transform one of these tea towels into a cushion, and save yourself quite a few quid in the process!  I’m tempted to give it a go myself.

Quirky Cat Cushions (Warning: contains swearage!)


Here’s a couple of brilliantly impolite cat cushions, both from Ohh Deer – the marvellous online emporium of funny, beautiful, and often irreverent, illustrated gifts and homeware.

Express your inner rage with the Purrfectly Honest Cushion, by David Olenick (above), and get rid of unwanted guests with the Piss Off Cat Cushion, by Laura Gee.


Both cushions are made from super-soft faux swede and have a plain stone coloured back cover.  They measure 43cm x 43cm and are machine washable.  Priced at £35.00 each, and vegan friendly!

This cushion and notebook by UK Etsy seller Vicky Houghton feature a gang of cute cats – the lovely Stella and her friends.  The Stella in question is Vicky’s rescue cat, who is very shy but is gradually learning to trust people again.

The cushion and journal are made from 100% cotton – including the appliqued cats – and both are machine washable.  The journal has a removable cover which will fit those A5 spiral-bound notebooks that you can find in most stationers.

The Stella and Friends cushion costs £33.80, and the journal is £17.22.  Both are available from the My Pipsqueak Etsy Shop.
