Sweet Dreams Little One: Gorgeous, Custom "Big Kid" Toddler Pillows From Emmi's Cottage {Review and Giveaway} **CLOSED**

Result:
46Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Congratulations to the winner, Anne!

Who knew a toddler could get so excited about a pillow? EG has never really been interested in our bed pillows, so I didn't really expect her to be overly excited about her "first" one. Making the switch from crib to toddler bed prompted us to get such a pillow. Crazy as it might sound, I just wanted her to have a "special" first pillow. You know, one just for her, just her size, and of course...one that matches her room! While searching for the perfect little pillow, I stumbled across these beautiful creations from Emmi's Cottage.

The Emmi's Cottage front page told me all I needed to know and I was sold:
"Simple and pretty things, made to last and made with love. This shop uses only the finest fabrics, trims and quality materials around. VINTAGE INSPIRED PRINTS ARE MY SPECIALTY."

Who couldn't love that motto? I instantly fell in love with the vintage inspired fabrics, beautiful colors, and super soft chenille. They were the perfect pillows! I could tell just by looking at the pictures that the pillows were well crafted, and I know the fabric used to make them to be of high quality. I am so lucky to have been made a pillow to review for EG! This might be my favorite review product yet! And it's definitely EG's favorite product! It's funny, it only took a few minutes for her to get attached to it. I showed it to her before we went to bed the night we received it, and she instantly wanted to lay on it. It's like she knew that it was made just for her, and the size was absolutely perfect. Now whenever she gets in the bed for any reason she asks for her "balloo" (pillow). So cute! You can see in the pictures what a perfect size it is for a toddler. It's not so full that it will hurt their necks when they sleep, and it is the perfect fit for their little beds. The fabrics used are super soft, and did I mention, GORGEOUS! The ric rac around the edge adds the final touch to these pillows. Any little one would be thrilled to have one, and they would make awesome gifts!

The name pillows are absolutely beautiful, but it doesn't stop there. Wait until you see the other items that Emmi's Cottage has to offer! By far my favorite things in her shop are her appliqued pillows like the Bella the Blue Bird "Dream" pillow pictured above. The detail on these is incredible, and I know that Dianne at Emmi's Cottage puts a lot of time into handstitching on these pillows as well. I almost want one for myself! Other beautiful items you can find at Emmi's Cottage are burp cloth sets, hair clip holders, and beautiful blossoms hair clips. You are sure to find something you adore, and if you love the pillows as much as I do, simply keep reading for information on how you can BUY one and also how you can WIN some great stuff from Emmi's Cottage!
