We had decided to decorate our daughter's room with a firefly theme and wanted to add a unique touch to the room. I found Belinda Lee Designs and ordered the lavender colored pillow with our daughter's name and birthdate. When the pillow arrived, I was thrilled with the detail and how absolutely perfect the finished product looked. Belinda made the process easy and we received the pillow really quickly. Definitely would recommend! Perfect idea for wedding gifts or new babies.

BelindaLeeDesigns is awesome to work with. She worked with me on colors to make the sure the ones I was thinking would go together well. She was quick in responding and it arrived in time before my daughters birthday. My teen daughter loves it! Would definitely order again.

When your family grows, your family tree pillow can too! This family just added a sweet baby girl, so their pillow is back to add her to their tree pillow too!


Sharing helpful sewing and machine embroidery tips, patterns and tutorials. Inspiring budding creatives to keep trying new things!

I sewed my first project when I was 11. Actually, I sewed two - a pig and a panda. They were assignments middle school Home Economics class. I was only supposed to make one, but my parents had recently gotten divorce and I was worried that if I gave one to my mom and not my dad, my dad would be sad. {Oh, silly child of divorced parents!}.

Both Piggie and Panda came out pretty well for a grade 6 sewist - I put my heart and soul into those softies. Don't believe me? Mr. Pig lived with my mom up until about a year ago (that's 2013). I think 30 years of life for a stuffie is pretty good - don't you?

Fast forward to 2013, my young daughter received a book called Sewing School and decided I should start a sewing school. She had seen watching me sew up custom creations and ship them off to my Etsy customers. And she was onto something - it was time to share my love of sewing. That summer I started teaching Sewing Summer Camp!

Teaching summer camp was a great way to share the sewing love, but it also got me started with making original patterns and tutorials.

This shop is where I share those original patterns and kits to get you started sewing!

How do you make this?

Want to see me make one? Watch a few of my videos here:

It's a combination of graphic design in my embroidery program, loading up my hulking embroidery machine with the right thread colors, hooped fabric with backing material and stitching it out, followed by trimming the fabric to the right size, cutting a matching back piece and inserting a zipper.

So it's a combination of creating the design on my laptop with my Brother embroidery software, a 10 needle Babylock embroidery machine and a regular Juki sewing machine.
