Holiday Spotlight: Blessed Friends Forever

IMG_0064Up next on our holiday gift giving spotlight series is Blessed Friends Forever (they’re your BFFs!). Marie draws and designs these sweet little pillows herself. I just love that she is having custom fabric produced, so she can sew up these little pillows. Custom fabric is something I’ve dreamed of, but never tried.

These sweet little pillows are just the right size for children to cuddle. Marie has also just started make swaddle blankets and they look lovely.

Here’s what Marie has to say about her process and the drive behind her shop:

I love making these drawings because it has become therapeutic and very stress relieving. I also enjoy discovering more about saints, why they have the clothes they wear, what they are known for, and especially asking for their intercession as I make each saint. I have found great comfort drawing these saints and creating pieces with them for others to enjoy, mainly as pillow dolls. I’ve definitely learned to appreciate the craft of sewing while making these products as well (it isn’t easy)!

You can find Marie and all of her handmade goodies at Blessed Friends Forever! She’s also on Instagram @blessedfriendsforever
