Cushion Design

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! 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.
