Fun Finds For Mom

Cozy custom pillowcases

My super talented friend Sara (of watermelon sorbet fame) cooks, decorates, creates and sews the most amazing things. She’s like the living, breathing embodiment of all the cool and crafty blogs — and she doesn’t even read blogs! Lucky for us, she does make custom pillowcases. She started out by making her son a pillowcase with a dinosaur applique when she couldn’t find one that she liked. Then she started making them for friends and fulfilling orders from strangers, after she showed off her pillowcases at local craft shows.

This appliqued bunny pillowcase is so sweet and soft, it reminds me of my favorite blankie when I was a little girl. I was going to iron it for these photos, but then I thought — come on, the  wrinkles are part of its coziness. Who wants to cuddle up with a non-wrinkled pillow, right? Here’s a close-up look at the funny little bunny…

Wouldn’t a bunny pillow like this be such a great Easter surprise for your little one?

Here’s what Sara has to say about her company:

Go To Bed Sleepyhead creates custom appliques on pillows perfect for little and big people.  The cotton appliques can be applied to a toddler or standard size pillowcase and are completely catered to the client’s wishes.  Standard pricing is 15 dollars for a toddler pillow with applique and 20 dollars for a standard pillow with applique.  Please send inquiries to sara2jane2 (at) yahoo (dot) com.
