Sun pillow with a smiley face - easy sewing & embroidery DIY project for kids and beginners

? Hello, lovely! My name is Sunny, and I would love to be your sunshine. I am always cheerful, and I try to look for the positive side of life. Don’t complicate, be as simple as possible is my motto. Would you like to be my friend?

The sun pillow with smiley face and embroidery “You are my sunshine” on the back, is my easy-peasy sewing and embroidery project, and also one of the cutest!

I love this sun pillow’s bright colors, big smile, and cute message at the back.

As it is looking at me while I work, it makes me feel warm it makes me feel good, life is good! You have to smile back to him. :)))

It heats me, how something can be so simple to make when you know how to, and yet can look so beautiful and professional.

Why would we complicate things if we don’t have to? Right?

There is beauty in simplicity. 

You are my sunshine!
