Firstly, I have to add a link to this local ladys sewing work, because she was the one who inspired me to start sewing in the first place! https://www.facebook.com/personalisedbirdpics She produces and sells personalised family trees for people. I really wanted one... but also really wanted to set myself the challenge of having a go myself!
Here I have a tree (an Autumn one, because Autumn is my favourite time of year) with three owls representing my two nephews and my little niece. I did the cutting out of the felt and the sewing all by hand (because I haven't had much practice with a sewing machine to feel confident enough to use one just yet!) and im really pleased with the outcome. I was originally going to frame the final design but felt that sewing it onto a plain cushion made for a much softer alternative and still gives a very nice frame for the artwork.
