Lovely Nature Print Leggings

I love these leggings! I wear leggings a lot for exercise, Pilates and Yoga and also just for leisure often with a longish top and in the winter with a nice big longline jumper. Leggings are also great for going out if they are unique enough and with the right top can look amazing!!

However many leggings are quite boring and if they do have a print everyone is wearing the same print which is embarrassing! So when I had the opportunity to design these leggings I wanted to put a unique print with a tribute to our wonderful natural world onto them.

I love taking photographs of nature and I wanted to see how these transferred on to a piece of clothing. I am very happy with the way the photographs of nature scenes and flowers and butterflies printed on to the leggings. I like the details and the interesting form that comes through on the fabric.

 My other photos of skies and water scenes are  less busy and give a cool blue or red or other more block colour though with a subtle shading and depth from  the original photograph of the sky or sea or water scenes.

If you enjoy wearing leggings or you know someone who does do take a more detailed look by clicking through any of the links!

Each pair of leggings is printed before being sewn whch means the print extends across the whole fabric.  Leggings have a compression fit due to the high spandex content so are figure hugging and leggings can suit all body types it is up to you how you wear them and what you wear them with. They are made of an Ultra-stretch ecopolyester spandex blend (88% polyester, 12% spandex) of a medium weight. To care for your leggings  its simple,  just wash on machine wash cold and lay flat to dry.
This all adds up to  comfortable and cool clothing great for the person who has a flair for the individual, who perhaps likes nature and loves wonderful colours and a unique print you wont see everywhere.

Here are just a selection of leggings with nature prints available. Do click any picture to find out more and see more of my designs. Thank you.

Cushions With Nature Photography

I love taking photographs of the natural world for designs on these cushions, throw cushions  and pillows. At home I love to have lots of cushions to give a homely, welcoming, warm feeling to our home.

Photographs include birds, horses, ducks, butterflies, bees, nature scenes, skies, water, vegetables, flowers and plants. All photographs are taken with love and care. Some in our own garden, some out on countryside walks and nature reserves.

I always feel that it is important  to spend time in nature as it is very healing and relaxing. As our natural world becomes more crowded out by housing and buildings I love to celebrate nature in the hope that others will feel it is important too to conserve the wildlife, animals , flowers and natural world we have left. 

I love to have nature in home decor to remind me even when I cannot be outside experiencing it that nature is all around and so importnat. It is also very beautiful and wonderful! Most of these cushions have the original photograph and some have a verse or quote as well, as I do love beautiful quotes and find them very uplifting and often comforting.

Some have the design on both sides while others may have a plain colour on the reverse.  Many are customisable for your own personalisation or message.

For many I transfer the design of a photograph of an animal, nature scene, flower or natural detail onto the cushion. For others I will make the image small then tile the image to make a lovely interesting pattern.

The cushions and pillows come in different sizes and are made from 100% Polyester high-quality Simplex knit fabric. It is a soft heavyweight material which gives a lovely colour definition for the photograph designs.

Great unique gifts foor Christmas, Birthdays and House warmings and a lovely complement to many living rooms and bedrooms and are in a variety of colours. I also feel they make lovely Mothers Day gifts as they are so pretty. Anyone who loves and appreciates nature will be happy with a gift like this. The advantage is you do not need to know any measurements and many of these cushions will fit happily into a variety of decor styles.

Do click through any of the links below to find out more or to  look at the full collection. More are being added on a regular basis.  Thankyou!

Nature Inspired Ornaments And Gifts

Stunning Snowdrops Ceramic Ornament

Here are a wide selection of ornaments in different shapes from stars to hearts, square, round and oval. All are photographs inspired by our natural world.  So we have animals, flowers, beach scenes, birds, water and skies, wood and leaves to name a few. Some are metal, some are ceramic.

I love taking photograps of our natural world. Some are in my garden or local parks, nature reserves and when out on country and beach walks or on holiday. 

In my own home I love to bring the outside in, to bring nature into the home gives a real welcome home feeling. I especially love the heart shapes and have these in several rooms in our home to add a homely feel and a bit different to the standarised ones you find in the shops. 

If you are looking for a unique ornament to decorate your home or maybe something a little different to decorate your Christmas tree this year do take a look at the items for sale. All are customisable so you can leave your own special message on the front or the back. 

I think they also make lovely, very personal gifts for a loved one that can be treasured for a long time.  

 Here are just a small selection to show you and we are adding more all the time.
