I made this cushion cover using free-motion applique. It's based on the drawings of flowers by my four year old daughter, I love the childlike character of the petals, and the tall tall stems. They could be sunflowers!

The fabrics are a mix of vintage and new cottons, and each yellow flower has a small button sewn in the centre. The background of the front is cotton/linen mix in a lovely light natural linen shade. The reverse is yellow, white and pink Midwest Modern 'Martini Gold', by Amy Butler. It has an envelope closure so you can easily switch your cushions around.

This sunny and bright design would fit easily in to your living room, a baby's nursery, or a little girl's room.

It is made to fit a 40cm / 16" square pillow (insert is not included).

Due to the nature of the applique, it is recommended to wash the cover by hand, and dry flat. It can be ironed at a suitable temperature for cotton. The edges of the flower petals are designed to slightly fray over time, a characteristic of free-motion applique.

All inner seams are overlocked for strength and a professional finish.

This item is ready to ship. I live in Belgium, so please allow time for delivery.

If you'd like me to make a different cover in the same style, or with different colours, please ask!

Frequently asked questions about tailorbirds

No, there is no tracking number for regular Air Mail out of Belgium - this is a service that would nearly double my shipping costs. If you would like to pay extra for this please let me know when you order. It will also mean you need to sign for your delivery or collect it from your Post Office.
Sure! Please just ask in the 'notes to seller' section at checkout. Please let me know what colour birds you'd like - ie. pink or blue or yellow... There is no extra charge for up to 5 birds, and I can pop in a few spare birds for any future kids you have too. Just allow me an extra day or two to sew your custom tree for you.
I send a bag with around 60 pre-cut leaves with every order of an Anniversary Tree.
(Excepting the Ruby one which has 40 leaves already sewn on and is designed as a 'finished' product)
