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!!

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.
