Poppy was Olivia's grandfather, and he passed away suddenly and unexpectedly some weeks ago. Olivia (she is 5 years old) drew this picture of him in heaven, and her mom asked me to turn it into a softie, hoping it would be a healing present to help her with her sadness.
The only comment of Olivia's mom was to point out the black on top of his head was in fact a hat- Poppy always wore a hat, so that was an important component!
It may seem strange to some of you that a softie like this can give comfort to a little girl. But I'm sure mothers know what's best for their kids. You know the strange thing is, that the week I received the email of Olivia's mom, I had almost the same request from an old customer of mine: she wants me to make grandpa softies for her daughters, because their grandpa is very ill, and she hopes the softies will give comfort to the girls, when their beloved grandpa passes. Softie making is not always just joy and happiness...
Olivia nagypapája nemrég váratlanul meghalt - ilyennek látja a mennyben az elmaradhatatlan kalapjával.
