Snuggle Up With the Queen and Her Corgi Pillow Clones
Queen Elizabeth’s birthday is June 11, and she’s turning the big nine-o. What did you get her? Don’t tell her, but Spoonflower got her 90 Corgi clones, guaranteed not to pee in Buckingham Palaces’ marble floor, along with a life-sized pillow of the stuffy monarch.
This stuffed idea comes from Spoonflower.com, a website that lets users design, print and sell their own fabric, including fabric printed with photographs of pets that can be made into pet-pillow clones of their dogs or cats.
“It is a token of our affection and admiration for the Queen – and her life-long love of corgis,” says Allison Polish, President of Spoonflower. In honor of the big event, the company has released photographs showing the 90 corgi pillows, plus one body-pillow of the Queen herself, in a variety of poses. We can’t get enough of them!
Although they’re only sending two pillows to the Queen to open on her B-Day (one each for the Queen’s two remaining corgis, Holly and Willow), Spoonflower is toying with the idea of auctioning them off to aid one of the Queen’s favorite charities – stay tuned for more info!
