Cushion covers where a custom made order and they are exactly what I ordered. Shipping time was quick considering that they travelled Fromm the USA TO AUSTRALIA.

Who I am, mostly.

Me, I'm Shirley Byrd and I operate this one-woman shop: from fabric shopping; to designing and cutting; to sewing and photo shooting. Sometimes I feel like a mad hatter having to wear so many of them!

I love how textile transforms living spaces into fabulous havens. Fashion, contemporary and modern decors, abstract art, and fabric art are my inspirations.

I began working with textile at the age of seven. I sat on the floor, next to my grandmother’s peddle-operated Singer sewing machine and fashioned scrapes of fabric into clothes for my dolls. My grandmother was a seamstress and a quilter. She taught me how to sew; how to make patterns from newspaper; and how to adjust store bought patterns to fit real body shapes.

Fast forward pass a Bachelor of Arts degree; a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa and then staff; and finally an HR systems specialist/project manager at a federal agency in Washington DC. (The longer the title, the more work you get to do!) It was during this latter period that my next career, though I didn't know it, was formulating.

My interest in home textiles devoured my evening and weekend hours. I was decorating my condo and creating a garden room on the balcony. I couldn't find what I wanted in ready made window treatments, cushions and pillows. I did find a nationally known home decorating store that made it possible for me to select fabrics, create a design and have them construct the project. Later, a 5-year long home decorating project lasted through two different homes and into retirement. My style had completely changed to a contemporary, almost minimal decor but still with a touch of the traditional. After I had retired, I worked at that same national fabric and home decorating store helping others make their home decorating visions come to life.

My shop is more than just something to do in retirement. It's a path to my next dream. Its a doorway to meeting all sorts of wonderful people. It challenges me to continue to learn even more about home decorating styles and to create high quality pillows that are practical, stylish--and timeless. And I'm loving every minute of my new venture!

Thank you for stopping by. Your business is appreciated and I try to reflect this in my shop policies by making them flexible, as well as providing protection for both you and me.

Refunds and Exchanges
I may accept returns if request is made within 5 days of buyer's receipt of the item. But please first convo me. Returns must be unused, undamaged or altered in any way. A full refund, excluding shipping fees, will be made 5-7 business days after I receive the pillow cover(s).

In most cases, I can send you a free fabric swatch (sufficient to fit into a #10 business envelop. If you are unsure of a color, please don't hesitate to make this request prior to purchase. If you are unsure of the best size that you need, use craft paper or newspaper and cut it to the size you believe you will need. Or if you already have a pillow insert available, use it to help determine an appropriate size.


If the pillow cover is damaged due to shipping, please convo me within 3 days of receipt of the item, preferably with a photo documenting the damage. A replacement will be sent. My job will be to resolve the cost of the item and shipping with the carrier, so this documentation will be necessary. If the package is lost in shipping, again I will send you a replacement. And again, I will contact the carrier. Still, it may be necessary for you to assist with resolving the issues with the carrier.

Annsliee pillows are designed and made to last. Pillow covers are carefully inspected by me at each stage of construction. Prior to shipping, inspection of the pillow is again made by me. I wrap all pillow covers in layers of white tissue and mail in a bubble wrap envelop.

The bottom line is your satisfaction, your happiness to have purchased an Annsliee pillow cover and enjoy it in your home. Should you have any problems, again I ask that you don't hesitate to convo me so that we can work something out.

Additional policies and FAQs
You can now purchase 10/90 DOWN/FEATHER inserts with sizes 18" x 18" and 20" x 20." Inserts are custom made in the US, run 2" larger than pillow size and are shipped already installed in the cover. Listed price includes the price of the insert; additional charge for shipping ($5.00); and upgraded packaging ($1.88). Pillows purchased with inserts are boxed and shipped FEDEX ground. Take your new, fabulous pillow right out of the box and place it in your dream decor!

Custom orders based on listed item(s) or creating a new design are most welcome. In most cases, a free fabric swatch can be provided. I only use my fabric. Some pillows are one of kind, others may be duplicated or made in different sizes.

Custom orders take approximately 5-10 business days from the time you make the request to receiving the order. Here is an example timeline for custom orders:
*You make a request.
*I will provide a quote, including shipping fee
*If you accept the quote, I create a reserve listing based upon our agreement.
*You make payment and it clears PayPal
*I schedule work on the order for the next business day
*Order is completed in 3-5 business days (unless otherwise stated) and the listing is updated with photos
*Order ships next business day

I am happy to reserve an order for you. However, since I cannot guarantee fabric availability, I can only hold an order up to three (3) business days (Monday thru Friday).

Thank you for taking the time to read my policies, I look forward to working with you.
