These ornaments are perfect! She was very easy to deal with, answered my questions right away, and sent me a pic before shipping. I haven't given them to my friend yet but I'm sure she'll be very happy.

I can not say how much I love the pillow we received. It was made so well and the owner was absolutely wonderful to work with! She messaged me throughout the whole process and sent a picture of the pillow before it was shipped! I’m definitely going to place another order for my niece and nephew! I would definitely recommend!

Cyndi made a memory pillow for my nephew’s son. He is 10ys old and just lost his father. The pillow turned out great and he loves it. I had pillows made for me, our girls and grandchildren when my husband passed. Cyndi does an awesome job, I highly recommend her!!

I love this pillow made from my father-in-laws t-shirt. I think of him every time I see it on my sons bed.
Custom Orders and Memory Pillows
I learned how to sew from my cousin. She helped me make a quilt for my husband's 30th birthday. I was contacted by someone looking to see if I could make a pillow out of some Beatles concert shirts he had. I watched a few YouTube videos and taught myself how to make a pillow with an envelope enclosure. My business grew from there. I began making t-shirt pillows from shirts found at thrift stores and selling them at craft shows near Columbus, Ohio. My business then evolved to Memory Pillows. This is now the focus of my shop. We have made pillows out of a variety of shirts. I have turned Polo shirts, Button-up shirts, Sweatshirts, Sweaters, Uniform shirts, Jerseys, Fleece jackets, and Windbreakers into pillows. We have also used sheets and tote bags to make pillows.
We make the ordering process simple! If you are interested in a custom pillow, simply purchase a custom listing in our Etsy shop. I will contact you as soon as I receive your order to give you our address to ship your shirt to.

Frequently asked questions
The standard pillow size I use is 16x16. If the shirt is smaller and doesn’t allow for this size of a pillow, I make the biggest size pillow in relation to the shirt. 18x18 and 20x20 sized pillows are available by special request.
Gift wrapping and packaging
Looking to purchase a gift for someone? Simply include in the purchase notes it is a gift. I can ensure I leave the price off and can also include a message on a nice note card if you'd like!
Custom and personalized orders
We love custom orders and can make pillows with your shirt or the shirt of a loved one.
Please check out our listings for custom memory pillows.
Once an order is received for a memory pillow, the address to send the shirts to will be sent.
Can custom orders be returned?
Due to the nature of our products, custom orders cannot be returned or exchanged. In the event of any request for a refund, pictures of the product must be sent. If the product is kept, the refund will be adjusted by the cost of pillow forms, patches, and shipping.
Any custom orders will be cancelled and refunded if the shirts are not received within 60 days. The refund will be deducted by the cost of any custom patches that were ordered. I will make several attempts to contact you via Etsy conversations and email before this happens. The orders will be archived in the event the shirts are received. If the shirts are received after the order has been refunded, the order will just need to be placed again.
Custom and personalized orders
Scraps are not sent back automatically. I do not return shirt scraps unless requested. I will happily do so, just include a note with your shirt that you would like any scraps sent back.
