As promised, here are the first 2 creations from a collaboration between my mom and I. This one is our very first "softie". Her name is "mother earth".
I have fallen in love with these sweet little plush toys. There are thousands of them on etsy and i was so inspired by them, i had to give one a try. This is my original design and my talented mom hand sewed it!
This next Lori & Mom collaboration is this:
I handpainted the strawberry onto the fabric and my mom sewed on the felt stem/leaves. Then she turned it into a pillow with black fringe. I love it. The best part is that we made it together! It will be in my etsy shop today.
Happy Monday and good luck!
