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.


If you want photos added to patches please email them to me at Lisa@LisasCreativeDesigns.com. Please include your order number and name.

*Once you place the order and complete checkout a pop up window will open up with my shipping address to send the garment(s) to. If you do not get the pop up please email me at Lisa@LisasCreativeDesigns.com .

Please include your name and any special instructions for me in the package.  Also, please be sure to include any lace, ribbon or embellishments you would like me to incorporate into the design.



Memory Pillow Made From Little Girl Dress


SIMPLE PILLOW~ a simple square, “no frills” pillow made from one garment. Features one layer of fabric, like with a shirt. No added embellishments.




PILLOW WITH PATCH~ a simple pillow made with one layer of fabric (front and back) from the garment with an added personalized patch to the front of back. Patch can include a photo.
***Please send me the photo via email at Lisa@LisasCreativeDesigns.com after placing order.



Patchwork memory pillow made from pajama bottoms


PATCHWORK DESIGN~ Pillow made with a patchwork design using more than ONE garment. Design can be up to 9 different pieces of fabric on the front. I have done pillows with 3 or 4 pieces as well. (Feel free to message me for photos) The back will be a solid piece of fabric or two different pieces. Optional personalized patches with or without photo are included in this design.




FANCY PILLOW ~ I have the most fun with these pillows and they are extra special! These pillows can include two layers of fabric (like lace over satin from a wedding gown) and can be embellished with added buttons, straps, handmade fabric flowers, bows, lace, etc. The sky is the limit with these pillows. Optional Personalized patches with or without photo are included in this design.



I strive to make each pillow about 12- 14″ square unless the garment is smaller than that.

Each pillow is stuffed with polyester filling. You will receive a complete pillow. Not a cover and insert.

Scraps are not sent back unless requested upon ordering.

    Beautiful job on a custom pillow!! Was so easy to order, easy to ask
    questions, and shipping was so fast! Highly recommend!!!

  2. witsend1960

    I love the beautiful pillow created from my mother of the bride dress.
    Instead of the dress being tucked in the back of my closet, never to be worn again, it sits out where I can see it everyday and smile at the wonderful memories. I am so thankful to have found such a creative person as Lisa.

    The transaction and communication was easy and the pillow was shipped quickly. Wonderful customer service.

  5. Lynda Foley

    Working with Lisa was wonderful! She created two incredibly beautiful boudoir pillows from my 35-year-old wedding blouse. She was able to use the silk and both types of lace from the sleeves and collar. My husband and I laughed and cried when they arrived because they brought back so many wonderful memories. I highly recommend her for creating a true keepsake gift from nostalgic clothing that is just hanging somewhere unseen. I will definitely work with her again!

  6. Marla Hargadine

    Received my order today and was literally in tears. The pillows are amazing and exactly what I wanted. Lisa was great at communicating with me during my order process. It is obvious that she put a lot of love and hard work into the memory pillows she made for me. My family will treasure them forever.

  7. Myranda Beard

    simply AMAZING .. from communication to shipping to the final product. HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!

  8. MeantToBe

    Amazing work! I can’t even begin to find the words to say how special these pillows are. Made from my mother’s wedding dress and my father’s wedding suit, the pillows were made with care and creativity. So grateful!

  9. Karen (verified owner)

    Great experience! Very good communicator! Great eye! Fast! Perfect! Thank you!

  10. Rose Connaughton

    Was able to get a set of pillows out of a long skirt!
    These are going to be a gift for my friend who suddenly lost her sister the day after Christmas 💜 thank you Lisa for getting the pillows done so quick!

  11. Colleen Mccarthy

    I ordered three pillows from Lisa. My parents both passed away this year (exactly one month apart) unexpectedly as they were only in their 60s. I sent Lisa a shirt of moms and one of dads. When I received the package and opened it, I was overcome with emotion. They were perfection. Exactly what I'd hoped for. The perfect gift to give my siblings this coming Christmas alongside a photo of my parents in which they were wearing these shirts. I was bawling upon receipt of these pillows and am sure to be emotional when giving them as a gift. My family will treasure these pillows and hold them close while remembering mom and dad. Lisa, I can't thank you enough. You were so easy to work with, the quality is top notch and the turnaround time was way faster than I would have imagined. Thank you – we will treasure these pillows.

  12. Cynthia Valent

    I had questions before I ordered and a modification after the order. Lisa responded promptly and the pillow is perfect!

  13. Ryan Barnhart

    I ordered pillows for my husband and his siblings after their mother died. These were just what we were looking for! Lisa did such a great job and she was fast and communicative. I would definitely recommend.

    We absolutely love the 3 pillows Lisa did from shirts that belonged to our dad who passed 12/20. She did an amazing job and we are thrilled. I plan to use Lisa again with some of my mom’s things. Just so happy and cannot say enough about the experience and end of result. Love!

  21. carriettar

    These came out great! Lisa kept the details from the original articles of clothing, and made adorable keepsake pillows for my kids.

  22. Roberta J Feld (verified owner)

    I absolutely adore and love my new pillow. I had two sweatshirts of my late husband; both so meaningful: one had his police dept emblem and the other had his picture celebrating a wonderful birthday. Lisa created a beautiful pillow for me, incorporating highlights of both sweatshirts. I now have a beautiful, meaningful and lasting memory, one that I proudly display and enjoy every day! Lisa did such a gorgeous and professional job! Thank you so much, Lisa! It’s a pleasure to share! Great appreciation, Roberta Feld

    Amazing product and quality! I ordered a couple pillows for myself and my sister to remember our grandmother who recently passed and they came out better than I could have dreamed. Perfect keepsake and way to keep her memory alive.

    Thank you so much!

  24. Justine Gopel

    This was such a great purchase! Once my order was received she made it and sent it back almost immediately! Thank you so much! My sister loves it!

    I had three of the memory shirt pillows made. My husband passed away July 27, this year. One was for me one for my mother-in-law and one for my son. They are so nice that I am getting 3 more made. Lisa did an excellent job on them!

    Lisa is very professional and even made a suggestion that wasn’t a part of my order to make it more personalized. She is friendly and offers a quick turn around. I am very happy with the quality and feel of the pillow. I will enjoy this pillow for years to come! I would definitely order from her again.

    Sent 2 baby shirts and a sweater(ugly) in my mother's favorite color to make a pillow for her. It's absolutely adorable and beautiful! My kids are grown now – one on their way to college so the baby shirts are really sentimental. Lisa made such a beautiful pillow from the items I sent! Thank you!!!

  31. Katy moore

    My dad received the memory pillow for my mom exactly as ordered. He was very touched & loved it. I can’t thank Lisa enough for going the extra mile & making this first Christmas season without my mom a very blessed one.

    Lisa did an amazing job creating 3 memory pillows for my nephews. I can tell that she put the time in to create wonderful designs with the shirts that I sent her. I recommend Lisa and am grateful for her creativity and care she provided me.

  38. Renee Evers (verified owner)

    I cannot say enough good things about Lisa and her quality of her work. I had sent her two shirts and a sweatshirt of my sons. He passed away and these items were to be made into memory pillows for family members. I searched on the internet for someone to make these and came across Lisa’s website. Its a little scary sending the shirts of your loved one off to someone you do not know. Precious cargo! Lisa did an incredible job!!!! Love our pillows that will give us some comfort of memories of our son. Thank you Lisa! ❣️

  39. Kim M. (verified owner)

    We absolutely love our keepsake pillows made in memory of my son, all his favorite t shirts makes them very personal , special and something to hug 🤗 and cherish . I just ordered two more because they turned out so great. Thank you Lisa.

    This was my second order of pillows from Lisa and again just beautifully done. I have had several compliments on these remembrance pillows as have each person of the 4 others I have given as gifts. When you can no longer hug the person who has gone on to heaven to be able to hug a pillow made out of a shirt that they loved is just really special. The packaging is even special with a note from Lisa. I just placed my third order as I keep giving mine away and miss having mine to hug. Thank you Lisa 🙂

    Lisa did a wonderful job turning one shirt into 4 beautiful pillows. I couldn’t have ask for a better job. She provides shipping confirmation and did the work in a reasonable time.

  45. Tina (verified owner)

    Lisa was the best ever. Excellent communication and my finished product was absolutely perfect. Will definitely use her again.

  46. debbie (verified owner)

    The pillows came out amazing my mother was obsessed with collars on all her shirts and Lisa incorporated those collars into the pillows making them that much more special. The shirts still smell like my mom too which is a upside Lisa even went as far as to do a little extra stuffed heart that I gave to my granddaughter and she absolutely loved it. Thank you again for the amazing work

  47. Sara

    2nd pillow I ordered. Both are beautiful. They were gifts for family members who loved them. Great way to remember a lost loved one. Fast service, always responds right away to any questions asked.

  48. Christine R. (verified owner)

    I was very pleased with the custom memory pillow. This was not as easy task since it was made from a well worn tank top, but it looks great and the deceased’s family will hopefully treasure it for years to come. Thanks!

  49. lisapar319

    Absolutely beautiful. I had purchased heart ornaments for my mom's 12 grandchildren and I wanted something special for myself. I had this pillow made and I cried for 20 minutes after taking it out of the box. It is made from my mom's favorite jogging outfit. I miss her so much and although it isn't the same as holding her, I feel closer to her when I hold the pillow and picture her in the outfit.

    Absolutely PERFECT!! Lisa was extremely helpful with my concerns (I messed up on the address), she even went to the post office to help! She answered all my emails right away. Both my husband and mother-in-law were in tears when they opened them, after losing dad/husband in Nov. Thank you Lisa, you did a FABULOUS job!!

    Lisa did great work on my Dad’s old suit jacket. Mom was in tears when she saw it. She now proudly displays it in her apartment so she can show it off for visitors. I’ll never be able to top this perfect gift for her. Thanks Lisa for making this great memento.

    I was very nervous mailing my Dad’s shirts for the memory pillows to be made. Lisa was so sweet and responded to all my emails and help ease my mind. She was very patient and kind with me. She let me know when she received my Dad’s shirts and kept in touch with me throughout the process. When I received the finished product, I was beyond happy!! My heart is broken after losing my Dad, these pillows make me smile and feel like he is close. I can’t say enough about Lisa and her product!!

    I had all these logo’s on clothing that was too old to wear, but what to do with The Old Course St. Andrews, Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, etc. Send to Lisa and she made a GREAT pillow.

  67. Bonnie Nesseth (verified owner)

    I just love them, I gave each one of my children one of the pillows and it was very heartwarming so thank you so much you did a wonderful job.

  68. Janet K. (verified owner)

    I LOVE my pillow. Lisa is an Angel in making a t-shirt my dad had into a pillow. I have my pillow on his favorite chair in the living room so others may see it. I am sending her three more t-shirts so my siblings can have a pillow in his memory.

    Lisa did an excellent job transforming my heirloom wedding gown into a one of a kind pillow. I will treasure the shared memories since both my deceased mother and I wore it. Great way to remember 2 special dates in our history!
