Collection: Little Birdy
To celebrate the art of sewing - I came up with this little design. If you look closely, you will see little felt applique daisies, cute felt applique birds with satin stitch eyes and beaks - and tiny stitched feet. All quilted on corduroy! All designed from scratch by me :)
Please note - this has been recoloured as of 26 August 2012 to match the new Spoonflower v2.1 profile. The blue and yellow have been updated.
More coordinating fabrics are available in my Little Birdy collection.
If you would like to see what the design looked like before I went stitching crazy (!) you can see it here:

This looks amazing printed Shelley, so realistic and the colours just sing in the new profile, top design :)
I'm pretty thrilled with how it printed! :) I do all my designs in Photoshop.
That looks so realistic! What program did you use?

Hello Stitchy Birdy v2.1 :
I'm so happy you think it looks "real" as it's all digital! Thanks Tanya and Amy!
i agree with pennycandy. love the colours too.
Your design really looks like it is made of felt, corduroy and stitching! Marvelous!
Thanks Elishka! Can't wait to get my swatch of this in the mail. Hoping my daughter will agree to it being the basis of her quilt!
The birdies are really cute!! Love the details on this!
:) I'm so glad you like it! I've been wanting to experiment with textures and this seemed like the right contest to do it for.

Thanks Kelly! I was struggling to decide between this and the purple daisies version to enter in the Sewing contest. I like them both!
Love your design, wonderful details!
