Tutorial: Swallow Cushion

I made this swallow cushion summer before last, using a plain cream-coloured cushion cover (from Wilkinson’s, if I remember correctly), some blue thread and a bag of mixed blue buttons from eBay.

I started with a silhouette that I found on the internet and then edited it until it looked like this.

Then, I printed it off at the size I wanted, pinned it to the cushion, and sewed all around (backstitch) in blue thread. From there, I filled it with buttons, and then filled in the holes between the buttons with blue seed beads.
