One of my favorite web sites is Etsy.com. It is a virtual web store for artists to sell their handmade goods. I find lots of inspiration when I go on there. I happened to be looking at the different types of plushies other people are making. I stumbled upon one store that sold miniature owls that fit in the palm of your hand. Then I stumbled upon a store that sold little embroidered pillow key chains. Both so cute! It gave me an idea; why not make a mini-liluga key chain?
I sat down at my sewing machine and made my first one. I loved it and attached it to my key chain. I made another and took it with me to show my friends at Bible study the next morning. Although they liked my bigger liluga’s, I was surprised by the excited reaction I got from them. They loved it and all wanted one! I gave my extra one to my friend Karen with the promise to make the others one also.
My brain is thinking; why not go with the mini-liluga’s? There cuter, quicker to make, and fun to carry around with you. Travelling love!
To date, I have made 38 liluga’s. Most I have given away, some I have sold. I continue to pray and ask God who He thinks I should give them to. Several people that I have given them to have told me that they keep them in a spot where they can see them every day and be reminded that they are loved. It brings a smile to their face. God has blessed me to be a blessing to others.
