Incredible Local Artisan: Cheeky Monkey

This week I received the most INCREDIBLE gift for Henry that I had to share. People have been so overwhelmingly generous and kind in thinking of my little guy, especially people I don’t even know like Holly Johnson of Cheeky Monkey Home.  When I unwrapped this pillow I nearly fell over- especially when I turned it around and saw the incredible stitching of Henry’s name and birth information on the back!  Made of the most luxurious merino wool felt, I knew the minute I touched this pillow that it was a true work of art.  I was so touched and am going to treasure it forever.

So I went to her website and was blown away by her talent- and so excited to see that she was local!  There are so many gorgeous patterns, all of which would make the most amazing gift for a baby shower, child’s birthday or even just for a friend- and having a name or date of a momentous occasion added to it just makes it all the more special. You can purchase your own through her Etsy shop.

Look at this handiwork- all cut and stitched by hand locally in Belmont.  I just cannot rave enough about how magnificent the craftsmanship is!
