Note from shop owner Sorry, I am "on vacation" for the next few months. My landscaping business is booming and I don't have time to sew until fall. If you have a question or would like to inquire about a custom order, please convo me.
Best, Jenn

I received the Irish flag pillow with the Chicago skyline on it today. I was impressed with its quality and perfect condition! I am very satisfied with my order. Totally worth the cost. I purchased it as a gift for my older brother that is in the military and is currently not in Illinois. He always loved Chicago and loved our Irish heritage so this gift is perfect for him! So thank you!!

About

Personalized Birthday Gift Goes Pro

A friend requested that for her birthday she would like one of her "creative" friends to make something to express her love of Chicago. I decided to put the city's famous skyline on a pillow. I began by taking lots of photos of the skyline and making several terrible drawings. I learned that if I were to actually illustrate ALL the buildings, I'd never be able cut out the fabric or sew it anywhere. I began simplifications and after several pattern changes I found, the one. My sewing skills were now put to the test. I wasn't much of a seamstress when I began making pillows, and I'm rather embarrassed by the first few attempts, but I've learned some incredible techniques and haven't been afraid to make mistakes. I am a perfectionist to a fault but also allow the imperfections in my work to provide added character.

Researching and illustrating new cities for custom orders is always so much fun. I love shopping for new fabrics and simply knowing that my creation is adored by the people who receive them. Sewing is very much a labor of love. Seeing my pillows in someone's home or hearing about how much they love them always makes my day.

I think your home decor should be a fun expression of the things you love. Things that inspire conversation, remind you of something special and things you simply want to be surrounded by. I take great pride in my craftsmanship for each item and have high standards for hand made goods. Each item is unique and sewn with great care and attention to detail.
