Stuffed animals are a staple in most children's childhoods and Nestwood has seen the effect first hand of something handmade, her own childhood pillow lasting her well into adulthood. Inspired by the gift she was given she extends these softie pillows to you and those you love.
Each pillow is made with Polyfil fiber, a pattern cotton print and flannel backing, accented with buttons and a contrast material. Each is handmade from home by Nestwood and are made to be extremely huggable and make great companions for sleepovers, away trips and long car rides.
Nestwood explains how she came to create the plushy pillows. My grandma sewed a lot when I was a little girl, I remember sporting vests and dresses that she lovingly made by hand, but the thing that I have held onto the longest was a small pillow, pink with cat-like features. I learned the basics from here and have always wanted to make something similar for my son, but a pink cat just won’t do for my son because I had passed down my old pillow. Contemplating and fussing about animals that he liked and that I also liked, I drew up a child size pillow around my old one but bigger, and just happened to have orange material- so the foxes were made. I love foxes myself, and so does my son and come this Christmas he will be getting his own foxy that he can hopefully pass down to his children.
