About

hand embroidered modern accessories for the home : cozy and cute

Before pillowhead was a twinkle in my eye, I loved to create things; weaving, drawing, paper craft, sewing. In 2005, I embroidered a pillow as a baby shower gift. In 2006, I discovered the wonderful world of Etsy through my husband's constant web surfing. So I decided to give it a try and I'm still here!

I find that embroidering by hand is a slow, calming process. The placement of every stitch has to be right, and can't be rushed. In the end, I get something that I feel is unfussy and modern looking, produced by the age old process of hand embroidery. I like to stitch words because I love words. How can you not feel optimistic sitting next to a pillow that says 'happy'? Or tranquil snuggling with a pillow that tells you to 'relax'?

I also have an interest in typography and printmaking. I am exploring linocut printing and carving out medieval style letters and printing them makes me feel that I am again making something new in a manner that is very old. Soon I hope to share some of my prints in my shop.

My customers are very important to me, and I feel so fortunate when someone decides to purchase from me. I make everything with care and I hope you will enjoy browsing through my shop.

Thanks for taking the time to read and support handmade artisans.
