A parcel arrived in the post which we had been eagerly awaiting. Inside was a cushion beautifully decorated with my sons’ artwork drawing, embroidered into a hand-stitched design by Natasha of Sew Personal To You. In fact it was even more than we expected, as I was assuming that we would just receive the cushion cover, but a cushion pad had already been inserted inside.
Here are my sons’ original designs, which they drew specially for the cushion, the day we agreed to do the review. These are pictures that they think Daddy will love, as whisper, they plan to give the cushion to Daddy for Christmas.
And here is the beautiful cushion created by Natasha.
You can see how accurately Natasha has copied the boys’ artwork, even the gap where son1 didn’t quite join Yoda’s leg upto his body. It is a wonderful way to preserve your childrens’ precious doodles by turning them into unique personal items either to keep yourself or as a gift.
Natasha has only recently started up Sew Personal To You as a small business, inspired by transferring her own childrens’ artwork onto polo tops. She maintained excellent communication with me, letting me know when she was planning to start the embroidery and when it was finished. And she explains in advance how line drawings, rather than coloured in, are preferable since she tries to match as close as possible what your child had drawn, line for line – tricky when coloured in but not impossible!
So if you’re thinking about Christmas presents take a look at Sew Personal To You. Your childrens’ doodles can be transferred onto all sorts of personalised items – clothing, cushion covers, hankies, shopping bags, tea towels, wall hangings, bookmarks, notebook covers and much more. And you may include extras such as the date and your budding artist’s name.
The boys were thrilled with the cushion and they even got a sticker each.
And I’ll let you into a little secret. I’m planning to host a giveaway on behalf of Sew Personal To You early in the New Year, in plenty of time for Mothers Day.
