About

My sweet, humble products travel all around the world!

After raising 7 children, and becoming an Empty Nester, I was utterly lost! I have always been a Maker, creating something daily. I cannot stand to just sit, but because I was born with physical limitations, I could not always do the activities I wanted to. So creating became my passion.

My first love is Interior Design, so pillow covers were a way to creatively meet that need. I am always changing up my home decor, and this is a fast and inexpensive way for customers to make their living space uniquely their own. You can never have enough pillows!

My knitting bag follows me wherever I go, because I must be creating at all times! Even something simple. The pattern is etched in my mind, and I have sent these all over the world! Our Pastor asked me one night how long it took to make one, and I said about an hour. I told him I have even thought of sneaking them in for when I'm not taking notes. He joked that maybe I should, because he would know to stop preaching when I finished one!

I first started making the Travel Tissue Holders out of vintage decorator fabric, and they were an immediate hit! I now also use quilting cottons, and line those for more stability. I have sent these to nearly every state in America; and overseas to Ireland, Switzerland, Sweden, UK, London, Australia, and Canada, as well as others.

This year, my oldest grandson, Gairon would have turned 24. Unfortunately he died unexpectedly at the age of 2, due to an undiagnosed, undeveloped part of his brain. His death changed us all, but especially his Mama, who was raising him alone, while going to college full time. I have decided to donate 100% of my sales from the Travel Tissue Holders to a research fund she has been giving to on Gairon's behalf at Denver Children's Hospital, so that in the future, other parents may not have to suffer as she has, at the loss of a child; and so that more children will live longer and healthy lives. I am choosing this product, because in the 22 years since he has been gone, she went on to graduate with a master's degree, and has done so much work to help others, and improve the world. She is currently serving at a major world relief organization, and has become a world traveler in the process.

At SydneyKathryns, we want to make a difference in the world. We strive to provide our customers with quality products, but life is about so much more than that. We want to use the proceeds from those products to change lives. Won't you come along on the journey with us?

Here is what people have said in their reviews:

Such attention to detail! My tissues used to be a wad at the bottom of my purse...this should solve that problem! I was very impressed with the quality. Thank you:)

This shop has so many incredibly beautiful fabrics, it's hard to narrow it down. Exquisite taste in selected materials, well made.

Elegant, understated, beautiful craftsmanship! THANKS.

Very well made from quality fabric and expert technique. Shipped quickly and very well packaged.

I purchased these as gifts for the moms for my wedding. Sewed patches on them with the date. They LOVED them. The shop owner was incredibly helpful and made sure these arrived in time. I would highly recommend.

Just what a lady needs - a pretty way to carry tissues so they're hidden and don't become mangled in a purse. I ordered two custom-made. This one was made of gold silk for my evening purses. It's lovely - worth every penny!

The fabrics are marvelous! The lavender smell is the best!

This will be for my Mom for Christmas because she LOVES lavender!

Beautiful pillowcases! The seller even bought additional material to ensure all four cases were made from the same dye lot!

Kathy was a dream to work with!!!! She made an amazing throw to protect our couch from pet hair and the sun fading our couch. The craftsmanship is excellent and we are thrilled!!!

What can I say? I keep buying these to share with friends!

Repeat customer! These make wonderful gifts. Beautiful, useful and elegant.

Bought these as a gift- but I will have a hard time parting with them!

Never fails to impress me with the wonderful quality!
