French Pillows w Bird Collage & Bunny Portrait

Easter Crafts, Sewing Patterns

Today I want to share some beautiful, unique French pillows with Birds and Bunnies, spotted in the hip-groovy Marais district in Paris.

Bird Pillows

If you’ve made our ‘bird with umbrella’ pillow, you could make this French pillow with bird print as a companion.

Techniques:  To make a pillow like this, however, you must first create the whole pillow design with all the various layers in Photoshop and then create transfers.  The ‘bird with umbrella’ tutorial teaches you how to use transfers.

You might like to review our stenciling tutorials on how to use stencils on textiles.  Overlapping mono-printing might give you a rougher, artsy version of this.


French Pillow with Personalised Portrait


This pillow is perfect as it is with that bow-tied bunny portrait.

However, if you have previously made our bird pillows, I’d replace it with a bird portrait to continue your interior design theme.

Taking it further…

I also love this portrait idea for making personalized pillows, which would make great graduation, anniversary or birthday gifts.
