Here in Austin, TX, we are known for our musicians, but do you know about musicians who also sew? That’s how the Etsy shop, Little Sidekick, happened. Shop owner, Christina Marrs, started making animals from spare fabric while on maternity leave with her third son. Since she officially stopped touring with her very popular band, the Asylum Street Spankers in 2011, she has reinvented herself as a full-time maker and designer.
The giraffe was the first item that caught my eye, and then I started digging through her shop. The animals are unique for their clean designs with a plush backing. My little guy loves to cuddle with anything soft, so this is a great crib find. All items are handmade, so why not have a wood memory game?
