Nursery Tree Design



So my little baby arrives in roughly 4 weeks and I decided to make it something fun and happy for its nursery. I decided to design a tree as it was a good gender neutral object( the baby's gender is a surprise) and also I found some great inspiration for the idea. The romp store website had this great tree decal and cut-ture had this amazing enchanted forest wooden tree that I loved. So I used this 2 ideas and came up with this huge tree design. I appliqu├ęd all of it and sewed it all with different fun stitch techniques I used vintage fabrics and other store bought fabrics. I loved adding buttons and ribbons to add texture to the leaves. I love my orange birdie!
We hung it up on the wall this weekend with a wooden poll and I am so pleased with how it turned out in the end!
