Pin It? Make It! : Felt Bird Cushion

Ok, first up I have two apologies to make...

1 - I'm two days late - so sorry - have had a bout of nasty headcold-itus and am now a bit behind with all sorts of things
2 - For some reason, the past two link ups haven't shown up the participant's links, so I'm sorry about that. I'm not sure why, but I'm trying something new this week, so hopefully this will become an issue of the past.

Ok, now that I've got that off my chest...this week's Pinterest project...

Now this talented Etsy Seller Sukanart, makes these adorable bird (and other designs) felt cushion covers, which I have pinned a couple of times...

They are all gorgeous, but I thought, why not try making one I did!

Loving these shades of greens and teals..

And in it's final home...our bedroom...

And now that I have made one, I must say that Sukanart sells these at a bargain price, for all the time that would go into making them (or maybe I'm just a really slow embroider/sewer, which I think is part of it, but the other part is - there is a lot of stitching to be done for just one of these cushions!) and they would be worth every cent.

But thank you, Sukanart, for the inspiration!

How about you? Any Pinterest inspired makings happening out your way?



  1. I love your take on it! I'm an equally big fan of those colours. And perfect in a long cushion as well. I've got nothing to join in with this week but I'm very hopeful that next week I will do!
