SONGBIRD BASKETS (First released March 2023)

These beautiful embroidered Songbird Baskets were inspired by the birds that visit my garden. They are perfect for holding small gifts – eggs at Easter or little trinkets any time of the year. They woud look gorgeous as part of a Spring tablescape, one  sitting on each of your guests plates or nestled on top of a stocking at Christmas  (the addition of a red felt breast would turn one into the perfect Robin).  The birds are about 7cm high  and fit a decent sized egg!


This 12 page Digital Download has all the instructions and templates you need to make your own baskets.  There are  4 pages of photographic step by step instructions, 100% scale templates and a stitch guide.  I like to think they are very detailed and easy to follow. I also hold live video tutorials on my Instagram every Friday evening. 


The templates come set up for  both UK A4 and US Letter printers and there is also a set of SGV file included for cutting machines. 



For extra help there are three Instagram Live Make-A-longs saved in my feed... 

Part 1
