Alana J Design is all about handmade, vintage style, traditional British crafts, with practical uses, tinkered with and adapted to suit modern day homes. V pillowcases and patchwork cushions in an array of delicious, patterned fabrics, to add character to your home and brighten your day - to make you smile. If you desire a unique and quirky home, somewhere that speaks of your personality, browse these pages and be inspired! Most items are one-offs and you are unlikely to walk into someone else's home and see the same handmade, individual cushion or teacosy!
We currently have a range of twelve V pillowcases in different, patterned fabrics (including fleece) and are constantly adding new designs to this range - this includes an easy fit V pillowcase and we can also supply the V pillow pads in the correct size.
I sew from home, in my Victorian cottage in Bedfordshire, UK and mainly use vintage machines including a Singer and a Bernina.
Making V pillowcases in patterned fabrics is how it all started - add to that our handmade bags, inspired by vintage and retro styles, mainly using Numb-Skull pattern designs and each one unique - plus our range of handknitted tea cosies.
