Keeping that drawing forever – lukedrewthis children’s artwork gifts (with giveaway!)

I’m a sentimental sort and I have a small stack of crinkly, stiff sheets of paper, which to the casual observer, are the paintings of a small child. To me, they’re all memories. The first time she held a crayon. The first handprint drawing. The first tissue paper flower. I’d like to keep them forever.

When Julie from lukedrewthis got in touch with me about her wonderful business which takes children’s drawings and turns them into permanent art on things like bags and cushions, it was very good timing. A great friend of mine, who has been having a bit of a tough time, and has an incredibly imaginative little girl who loves to draw had just shown me one of her pictures. I asked Julie if she could help me cheer my friend up and here are the results, isn’t it amazing? I could look at this picture all day and see something different, and the fact it says ‘I love mummy’ at the bottom is just perfect. It looks so great against the simple cream colour of the bag, too.


Julie’s company is Bristol based and named after her son, who loves to draw. She’ll place your chosen drawing on a t-shirt, babygro, cushion or bag, all of which are ethically sourced and made of Fairtrade material. Everything comes in a variety of colours – I love the bright yellow for bags, and a black t-shirt with the drawing in white looks fab for guys, quite designer! Check out all the happy dads on the lukedrewthis gallery.

These are such a special gift for anyone, especially if the drawing is of them. Julie’s working hard on Mother’s Day orders for gifts at the moment (if you like the look of something, get your order to her by March 8th and it’ll get to you in time).

But, just for Bristol Parent readers, lukedrewthis is giving away the chance to win a cushion with your chosen drawing on in time for Mother’s Day. All you have to do is use the widget below to win as many chances as you want, including leaving a comment to tell us about your favourite drawing by your child.

Thanks to Julie from lukedrewthis for the beautiful bag for my friend. I know it’ll make her smile when she uses it.
