If you are looking for a gift that will pull at the heart strings, consider having a custom memory pillow created from special loved one’s clothing! These darling pillows are perfect for remembering a special time in one’s life or keeping a loved one who has passed close to your heart. Have a custom pillow created from Grandma’s wedding dress, Dad’s favorite shirt or your son’s little league jersey. These handmade memory pillows make wonderful gifts for weddings, Christmas, Birthdays. They are also heart warming bereavement gifts. For each and every pillow I make I try to keep the integrity of the garment in tact by incorporating buttons, pockets and tiebacks into the pillow. I can even add extra lace or create a patchwork type of pillow using pieces of more than one garment.
I can create a pillow out of almost any type of garment ~ (light to medium weight) jeans, button down shirts, T-shirts, dresses, skirts, pajamas, bathrobes, sweaters, sweatshirts etc. I have even done a few pillows made from jackets and blazers. As long as the fabric is not extremely thick or contains a lot of beading it should be fine. PLEASE DO NOT SEND HEAVY DENIM. LIKE A DENIM JACKET. My machine cannot handle the thick seams.
Each pillow is custom made to order.
