3 month ago I wrote a piece about a mother at school which had lost the fight against cancer. I then promised her two girls that if they wanted, I would make a cushion for them from the clothes of their mother as a memory of her.
The youngest daughter would love that and last week I got a box of clothes which I could use. It was mostly basic things, but a few pieces inspired me to use and thinking about Esther and what she loved and thinking about an 8 years old girls style, I came up with these tree cushions.
The sunflower was Esters favorite flower and was almost a symbol when she died. So many people had bought sunflowers for her.
The green flower cushion was from a dress of hers and the heart was from a fleece vest she wore the last time I saw her.
I hope that these cushions will help her daughter to bring her a little bit back to her mother when she needs to and use them when she is sad or down or needs a moment alone. I just can’t imagine how it would be without a mother and hope that this little gesture can help her to be strong and to remember all the good things about her mother.
For you Marit
