It is made completely out of recycled fabrics from my scrap box and feathers plucked straight from an old feather pillow. I carved a little leaf shape out of a cork and stamped the falling leaves using acrylic paints.
I also hand emproidered the babys name, date of birth and weight in a Whinnie the Pooh style font around the outside of the tree... I scanned it before I did that so no pics, sorry.
I love how this has turned out and I really enjoyed doing it.
I've been trying to spend a couple of hours a week doing something crafty. There is another one of these waiting to be packaged up and sent out (I'll show pictures another time) and I have been doing loads of work on my Japan painting that I started months ago. I'm hoping to get it finished in the next couple of weeks. Picture update to come!
Right now, it's chucking it down with rain outside and one of our neighbours is setting off the LOUDEST fireworks you've ever heard! My poor little dog is terrified, we just can't keep her settled. I don't know why they have to make so much noise - the noisy ones aren't even the pretty ones!
