Composed, crafted, measured, cut and sewn—all in a bedroom of a wood-sided farmhouse, built by a Civil War veteran, in a Minnesota river town. That’s the journey that each pillow cover takes, from concept to finished good.

As a graphic designer and seamstress, I make each pillow cover by hand, one at a time. Specializing in French-country, vintage-inspired burlap and cotton pillow covers, each piece has a certain couture-like feel (couture is a French term used to describe distinctive, high-end fashion).

I design and sew all of my pillows right here in my home. I grew up sewing on a little Montgomery Ward table top sewing machine and always loved it, but never imagined this is how I would support myself. As I was finishing my final year of post-graduate school, I brought a beautiful little child into the world who happens to be severely disabled. My little guy requires nursing level care and receives around 40 hours a week of therapies, most in my home, and although my days are filled with many interruptions, squeezing in my sewing and filling orders is something I have found I both love and manage well.

When you buy a pillow or pillow cover from one of my shops, you are helping me ensure that I can meet my son's needs and keep us in our simple farmhouse in the middle of Minnesota that has been modified extensively to keep him safe! I am currently raising the money for a service dog for him as well, and every pillow I sell truly helps, and I genuinely appreciate each and every one of you. I am honored that you have chosen me to help make your spaces beautiful!

I understand that with Etsy's new policies, shops in China are able to compete with me and sell a pillow for less than I can even buy my materials for one pillow, so I just wanted to share my personal story of where your money goes when you shop with me.

I no longer sew on a little Montgomery Wards sewing machine! All of your pillows are sewn on industrial sewing machines and sergers, and are professional finished, steamed, and at your request, can be delivered tagged and in sealed bags for quality gift-giving! My burlap is decorator grade sultana burlap, fully-lined in 100% cotton for structural durability. My competitors are using low-quality landscape grade burlap that is not hydrocarbon free and smells strongly of chemicals when you open their packages. Their burlap is not fully lined, and their pillows are not serged. They are sewn together with a home sewing machine, without finished edges and because of the loose weave of the burlaps they are using, will not last. When you purchase a product from me, it is guaranteed to meet my very high standards for quality, workmanship and durability.




CHECK MY SHIPS TODAY SECTION FOR EMERGENCY PURCHASES!

I am typically shipping within 5-7 days of the time of your purchase. Please don't hesitate to ask what day your order will ship, as it will very likely be sooner than the date Etsy is currently posting! Please note that I do not accept returns, so if you would like to see how an item looks in print, please request a sample of any design you are interested in. It is only $3 and worth saving you a heartache.

If you are in a hurry for your design, please check the SHIPS TODAY section of my shop. All those pillow covers are in stock, sewn and will ship to you the first business day of your purchase. Please note that the SHIPS TODAY covers do not have an insert option, and you must checkout separately with SHIPS TODAY items from other items in my shop, otherwise they will ship when the other items are ready to ship. They also may not have all the options I offer, such a color choice on the back, since they merely represent what I already have sewn and in stock.


International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to your country. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The buyer (you) may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot collect these or warn you about them in advance. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond my original delivery estimates. All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms.
