This little cushion cover has been made and personalised as a gift for an upcoming Christening present. Not only is it already unique, a simple handmade gift can be made ever more so by adding the date of birth and names to the item by hand embroidery. The design is one of my own, which I have reused for this particular gift, though all the fabrics are different from ones used in the past, therefore no two are ever the same. The little tractor, scarecrow, sun and the crows are all hand cut from felt then hand appliquéd to the centre patchwork panel over the farm and field scene. The whole cushion cover was hand quilted in the ditches to add texture to the fields and I added little flying birds by stitching simple lines. Recycling old buttons was a finishing touch for the scarecrows jacket, tractor and trailer wheels!
