  • Handmade

Pay homage to your pet with a custom pillow.
Each piece is custom made to become a squishy lookalike of your dog, cat or any kind of companion – big/small/fluffy/bald – I don’t discriminate.

Designed to be a super huggable alternative to your pet, this pillow is ideal for those recently bereaved or to simply add some extra love into your home.

This custom cushion is bound to spark some conversations and would make a memorable gift for a friend who’s frankly fanatic about their pet – we all know one.

Measures approx (H) 42cm x (W)30cm, but this will vary depending on the design. Made from 100% vegan materials

Once you have placed your order I will email you to request photos and have a bit of a chit-chat.

Each piece is hand illustrated & digitally printed upon a super soft velvet fabric. Your design is then sewn onto a black or white velvet & stuffed by hand until plump.

Each piece is carefully designed. I spend many hours on each to ensure it’s the very best it can be! Production times vary throughout the year - but are usually between 2-4 weeks.

I’ll keep you up-to-date along the whole process and you’re always welcome to message me.

I ask for 4-6 photos of your chosen pet in a seated or laying position. Photos taken in daylight and from ground level are ideal. But don't worry too much, I can work with what you have! If you are unsure - email me and I'll take a looksie.

I always send a proof to you before production. At this point I welcome any feedback for adjustments you may like to make to the design, I'm happy to alter the design until you are 100% happy.
If you require any large design changes (i.e. open mouth, change of body pose) this may incur a small charge as it takes me a little longer to do. To avoid an extra charge, please let me know of any particular facial expressions, fur markings or poses you would like me to draw at the time of sending the photos.

Add another cushion to your order (of the same design) for only £40, just select '2 cushions' from the drop down menu. The quantity tab at the bottom is to add a different dog or cat.

I love my custom pet pillow!!! It is a wonderful representation of my recently passed beagle, Louie. Helen was tremendous to work with. She made all of the modifications I asked for to make the image look just like I wanted. I would highly recommend her products. Thank you so much!!!

I LOVE my pillow pup! It looks just like a miniature version of my dog, but the best thing is, I can take her with me everywhere I go. I travel a lot for work, so I put my pillow in my bag and head off and, of course, take tons of pictures along the way. It's a great way to always have my best friend with me even when she can't be there. Thanks so much for the great product!

Helen was an absolute joy to work with, she was able to produce our Bourbon (dog) cushion in quite a short timescale whilst showing patience with any ideas I had buzzing in my head. The end result was very professional and my son loved it!! My whole family did!! Lovely to support such creative, friendly individuals like Helen.

THIS IS THE MOST PERFECT GIFT FOR DOG PARENTS!! Helen has incredible attention to detail- she captured my corgi (little legs and all) perfectly! The soft velvet makes this such a chic tribute to a best friend. Helen was so easy to work with- she was quick to respond and make any adjustments requested. I highly recommend adding on a print as well!
