it all started with a book.
lily was given this adorable book from her aunt courtney last year for christmas. really adorable. i highly recommend it.
lily loves it! its all about a little girl who had a favorite dress, then grew out of it, so her mom made the dress into a shirt, then into a skirt and so on, until it was just scraps.
this year for christmas, gracie decided to make some hair bows for lily just like the bows made in the book with the last scraps of the favorite dress.
but even better than that sweetness was the wrapping paper gracie made. this is one of my favorite drawings she has ever done!
in walks one of my newer sponsors, sunny little studios.
if there were ever a sponsor that fits my artsy family perfectly, this is it!
sunny little studios takes your child’s artwork and makes soft toys or pillows from it.
this is the pillow they made for lily!
when i opened the box as a surprise for the girls, i said it was from gracie for lily, and they loved it! lily was stoked to have an amazing pillow and gracie was honored to see her work on a pillow and further appreciated.
here’s a close-up of the detail in the work on the pillow. how great is that?! i cannot get over the details, even down to the eyelashes.
isn’t that just the cutest pillow you ever saw?!
sunny little studios not only takes a child’s drawing and turns it into a multi-dimensional pillow, but they can also turn it into a sweet stuffed animal, or robot, or whatever it is they have drawn.
they also can mail your child a “softie” for them to color and decorate themselves. these owls are so sweet!
check out this family pillow. i think this would be the sweetest idea would be for a mother’s day or father’s day gift!
sunny little studios has been so kind to offer all of you a discount too! when you place your order, just include in the comment line that you learned about them from the pleated poppy to receive free shipping and handling! (offer good through april 20th)
if you do order a pillow or softie, i would love to see your final product too! take a pic and tag sunny little studios and @thepleatedpoppy on instagram or post it on facebook!
