About

Together we co-create the perfect personalized gift - embroidered pillows and art - that commemorate milestones and celebrations.

I began my keepsake business with a custom request from Raleigh interior designer, Anne DeCocco. She wanted to make custom message pillows for a handful of her best clients. We embroidered their favorite sayings onto custom made pillows using their favorite colors. Anne's customers gushed at her thoughtfulness, how unique to make something that spoke just to them! I loved the experience of working with Anne to make these one of a kind items. I was hooked on creating these custom pieces.

From there, my shop blossomed with unique designs. Inspiration is everywhere - from visits to the New York Subway to the dreams of you my lovely customers. I've found that stitching a loved ones name, favorite phrase or vacation spot is a great way to start making a custom keepsake. Add in using their favorite colors or matching their home's color scheme and you've made them something truly unique and as special as them.

~ Detailed Craftsmanship In Keepsakes That Are Made To Last ~

When I started making pillows, I knew I wanted them to last for a long time. I can envision my family tree design pillow becoming a beloved family heirloom for someone. To refine my skills, I worked with a locally renowned seamstress. We focused on creating durable seams and strong zippers. She helped me develop my skills to a level at which I feel confident my pieces will withstand many washings and snuggles.

~ Partnering With You To Make A Design You {And They} Will Love ~

One customer shared that she felt like her hand was held through the whole ordering process. She was spot on - that is exactly how I want you to feel. I want you to feel as warm and fuzzy about the process of designing a custom gift as your loved one will feel when they receive it.

As part of my design process, I partner with you to develop a digital proof so you can visualize your keepsake with it's custom details and colors. Recently, I added digital editing software to my design toolkit to help create more realistic proofs. This step takes away a lot of the mystery and uncertainty of commissioning a truly custom item.

~ Request Your Own Design ~
Are you still looking for the perfect design? Send me a message to request the design of your imaginings, I look forward to working with you to bring your unique vision to life.

How do you make this?

Want to see me make one? Watch a few of my videos here: http://www.belindaleedesigns.com/p/videos-tutorials.html

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.
