Made by hand with love


Sewn By Carol - Home Of The Reading Cushion

You may not have heard of reading cushions before or you may know them by another name - book cushions, reading pillows, book pillows or even pocket pillows. They are standard cushions housed within a themed cover onto which is sewn a large pocket into which you can slot that favourite book or e-reader.

They represent a great gift idea for young and older generations alike. Perfect for an avid reader or bookworm whilst also acting as an encouragement for the little ones to get into reading. When they're not being used they're also a lovely addition to a bedroom or a favourite armchair!.

All my reading cushions are hand made and lovingly embroidered by me so each one is completely unique - Find Out More >

Most Frequently Asked Questions

Are The Book Cushions Handmade?

Absolutely YES! They are all completely handmade by me (well, with a little help from my sewing machines). I work from my little studio in Staffordshire UK. The only thing I buy in are the cushion inners (pads) which I source from a local UK supplier ensuring that they all fully conform to safety and fire regulations. You can read all about how I make them in my feature: The History Of The SewnByCarol Reading Cushion

How Big Is Your Business?

I am a small UK business ... a cottage industry if you like. I've simply turned my passion into a small business.

I'm not looking to mass produce and sell cheaply - I hand sew and craft unique designs of the best quality I can and combine this with the best customer service I am able to provide.

What Is Your Customer Service Like?

I pride myself on my customer service. Apart from the immediate automated email order confirmation you will recieve personal emails keeping you informed as to the progress of your order. I can be easily contacted directly and will personally respond to all communications as quickly as possible. Any problems with the cushion and I will gladly refund or replace because I want happy customers.

Is My Payment Secure?

100% Yes. You can make your payment using a credit or debit card of your choice or via Paypal or any of the other major payment platforms. Your payment will be made through the security of Paypal or Shopify and not directly through us. We therefore do not collect any of your personal or credit card details - they are all handled throuh some of the most secure and trusted financial organisations in the country.


I bought two of Carol's wonderful reading cushions, one for myself ane for my 24 year old daughter! They are beautifully designed and very high quality with exquisite embroidery! My daughter and myself both love them and mine looks very pretty on my favourite reading armchair! Very highly recommended. Thank you Carol.
