Bike Saddle Warmer

Red and pink wool flower

Right now there is just too much snow to use the bike unfortunately, but at least I can report that my modern day wool embroidered travel cushion (åkdyna) is finished and will warm by butt on many tours in both autumns and springs to come! I’m proud to say it’s all my idea, my design and my embroidery (leaning on old and well loved Swedish embroidery traditions)!

    I love this! It’s so cute. Do you have a little white, wicker basket on your bike too? Because this would so go with that look!
