About Melissa Jayne

Handmade home and giftware with a whimsical twist of childlike charm.

Welcome to my folksy shop. Here you will find colourful, retro home and giftware, including personalised items, individually designed and handmade by me, Melissa Jayne , BA (Hons) Textiles. Based in Cheshire, UK, my designs and creations are inspired by vintage items from my childhood, giving my products a whimsical twist of childlike charm.

I enjoy designing my own printed fabrics, which I use to create decorative items such as handmade soft toys, scented lavender decorations and wide selection of colourful scatter cushions to include personalised family trees. My most popular products are my range of lovable shaped pillow toys called 'Cushion Companions®' - they are cosy, huggable friends for home and travel, designed and created with both kids and adults in mind. I produce them in an eclectic mix of colours and styles and offer optional personalisation on them; making each huggable friend completely unique and the perfect bespoke gift for loved ones.

As well as crafting with my own fabrics, I also have a passion for upcycling and enjoy sewing with novelty printed fabrics from my vintage collection to create one of a kind quirky items such as teddy bears and dolls.

Thanks for visiting my folksy shop. If you would like to keep up to date with new creations and to see what inspires my designs, you can follow me on my favourite social media platform Instagram
