thai tree cushion

while visiting the grand palace in Bangkok last year I was taken by the formal gardens being tended with some very old fashioned clippers.....

these trees were fantastic, a lot of work but looked amazing

so from this inspiration came...
 I used a great work shirt 'donated' by my housemate to make the foliage and back of the cushion with a nice white quilting cotton with blue thread to sew the tree trunk
pics below of the making process, going to make some more with different shirts... just got to pic the next colour


  1. I just love it, this is such a great idea. This is something that I even could do with the kids. Thank you for the tutorial Alice, it's great.

  2. I went to thailand this november...I know what you mean...Those trees really caught my eye!I loved them!
