Description

CHRISTMAS ORDERS CLOSED. THANK YOU!

A wonderful custom pillow case to preserve the memory of a loved one. Or perhaps you simply have too many shirts and would like something interesting and useful made out of them? I will sew this pillow case for you!

This listing is for ONE (1) pillow cover - MADE FROM A BUTTON DOWN SHIRT - that will fit a 16" x 16" pillow insert (purchased separately - available at most national craft stores.). Sometimes I can make a larger size if the shirt is large. Please indicate if you are interested in a larger size and I will let you know what insert to buy.

The pillows and quilt shown in the photos were made using my customer's father's shirts. They were a gift to her mother for the holidays in memory of her father. What a wonderful way to upcycle clothes from a loved one into a meaningful, yet practical gift.

Love this cute little bag. I enjoy collecting sea glass when vacationing in Mexico, but always end up digging around with one hand while holding my beautiful little treasures in the other. I searched Etsy looking for a shell collection bag to use, most of which were a bit too large and just not right for my needs. I was so happy to find this listing for this beach glass collection bag. It was uniquely made with care taken in detail and design. I hesitated a bit at the price, but none of the other options I found were as perfect as this bag. So I had to have it. It’s well made, has a drawstring to keep beach treasures safe and the metal clip makes it easy to attach to a belt loop or beach bag. I’m so glad I ordered it, I just love it and can’t wait to use it. Thank you, the blue fabric looks perfect!

FAQs

The turnaround time depends on the number of items in my custom sewing queue. It is best to plan as far as possible in advance, especially if you are considering giving one as a gift in December(holidays) or May (graduations). You can request a rush order. If I can accommodate you, there will be a $25 additional charge. Currently, quilt blankets require 6-7 months. Pillows, 2-4 weeks.
The blankets are machine washable. Machine was cool and tumble dry low. If you would like to press the top of the quilt, press gently using a press cloth or handkerchief so that you do not melt the T Shirt motifs.
No. A traditional quilt is made of three layers: the top, a middle layer of batting and a cotton bottom. The batting can shift and bunch so the quilt has to be stitched or “quilted” through the three layers. Maiden Jane blankets have two layers: the top and a cozy fleece bottom. There is no need for batting. The blankets are top-stitched and tacked down to keep the layers stable. The fleece provides a cozy and comfortable backing that is not as stiff as a traditional quilt. I can make a traditional quilt but the cost and time involved increases significantly.
I have made these quilts for over ten years. My customers testify that they are quite durable. My own children have used their blankets at college as throws and picnic blankets. They wash up very nicely. Will they be heirlooms in 100 years? I don’t know! But they are surely a “practical and pretty” way to get T Shirts out of your closet and drawers!
I use interfacing on shirts that are extremely worn or have holes in them. I also use them in the blankets that are sewn to cotton fabrics. This is mainly for ease of construction.
Yes!
Yes! If the sizing is right, I can often take two shirts and combine them into one block.
Yes.

You can leave fabric selection up to me or we can work together to make the selections. Sometimes customers will specify a color they would like or think would work well. Many times they leave the choices to me. You can always look through examples of my other blankets to get ideas.
