Announcement   Welcome to Josie's Heirloom Crafts--home of the distinctive star pillow!
I have been asked--what are these? The answer to that is that they are a decorative throw pillow, meant to accent your home! Several of my local customers love matching these to their living room decor, their bedroom decor, and of course--just buying them for their children! They are great for naps, as your head will nestle right in the center, with the higher edges cradling your neck.
These pillows are all sewn in my home in Maine using the method handed down to me from my great-grandmother, who made them back in the 1960's. The pillows are stuffed with premium, lofty polyfil stuffing so they are nice and soft. The buttons are chosen with care to accent the fabric and design of the pillow. I have many different premium fabric designs to choose from--find one to fit your home! Come back soon for more offerings and watch my Facebook page for updates on things that are in the works!

About

Making Distinctive Star Pillows

I didn't learn to sew until my kids were born, even though many people in my life had been great at sewing. My mom helped me in my learning to sew from several states away; many phone calls of "how do I do this?". Then, when I would go home to visit in the summers, we would work on things and she would show me little tricks--we had a great time teaching and learning!! I even started making my kids Halloween costumes every year--so much fun!!
This year my life settled down a bit and I decided to pull out my old sewing machine. What was I going to sew though?? My kids are far past the age where they want homemade clothes or Halloween costumes....then my mom mentioned "Grammy Abbott's pillows". I loved the idea and Josie's Heirloom Crafts was born (Josie is my grammy Abbott)!! I had always thought those pillows were great, but I didn't remember how to make them. So, once again, my mom sent me a video to remind me of the steps and away I went!! I even came up with one trick that she had been doing differently that she loved--the student teaching the teacher!!
I have been having a blast choosing fabric, sewing, and seeing everyone's reactions each time I show people a new creation. I have also learned more about making these pillows in particular and what I can do to make them better and better.
I love these pillows, and love seeing how each fabric combination turns out. I hope that you will also love the pillows you find for your home from my shop!
