A little wobbly on its feet, but looks as pictured and is perfectly detailed and adorable. My one caution to buyers is to check the shipping time. This is definitely an item you have to plan a couple months in advance.

My birds are my signature work and I have made thousands over the last 12 years since I created my original bird pattern! My work has been featured in 'Brides Magazine', 'You and Your Wedding', 'Country Living Magazine', and 'Mollie Makes UK' to name a few! I created patterns for the book ‘Pretty Little Cozies by Lark Books USA. I also worked with Mollie Makes magazine to create a set of love birds for their front cover, issue 36. To see an example of my lovebirds they are featured on this beautiful cake http://vimeo.com/19802272

After completing my textiles degree I worked as a freelance illustrator and sculptor working on fabric birds and other work before setting up my Etsy shop in 2007 with a collection of my fabric and paper birds.

As well as the original bird designs I sew, photograph, package your order...and everything in between! Along with ready made designs I welcome custom orders and have lots of experience working with happy couples ( and Mums! ) to create special custom pieces for Engagement Wedding Anniversary and Baby gifts.

My Wedding Cake Topper Love Birds...
...have become my signature work since my first cake topper sale on Etsy way back in 2007! Their shape and method of making have been thoughtfully refined over the years from my original design concept to the little birds you see in my shop today.

Materials and Method of Making
I work with new, recycled and vintage fabrics and love working with vintage linen in particular. I am drawn to a colour palette of neutrals and vintage faded floral (although a splash of colour does find its way into my work sometimes!) I own 3 sewing machines but most of my work is hand stitched I enjoy this slow process and connection to my work.

I am based in the UK and can ship worldwide to any location. For international orders I use a fast and reliable priority airmail service and you can order with confidence, every package has a unique tracking number and insurance.

Many of my little birds have found found happy homes all over the world, thank you to my wonderful customers for their continued support of an independent artist!

If you have any questions before making a purchase, or would like to chat about placing a custom order please get in touch you can contact me through Etsy 'conversation' or email me at;
