Custom Order

I just finished up a custom order today.  A pillow cover with an anatomical skeleton image. This image is from The Graphics Fairy.

You might remember this image from a post about a pillow I made for my son.  He is an Athletic Trainer and I thought he would get a kick out of this image.  A picture of his pillow is below.

This pillow has proven very popular on Pinterest and I believe that is actually how the buyer found me and contacted me through my Etsy.  This pillow is also going to be a gift for a son; a medical student, from what I understand.

I’m doing pillow covers with an envelope backing rather than full pillows now.  The pillows take up too much room on my craft sewing room shelf space and, as room is at a premium in there to begin with, pillow covers make more sense storage-wise, plus they will be less expensive.

Feel free to contact me for a custom order.  Most of the time I can do what is asked for (and will tell you if I can’t).  I hope the recipient of this pillow cover will enjoy it!

It's a great pillow, Kathy. The son of your customer will be totally thrilled to receive such a cool gift from his parents.

a great idea to do a pillow cover rather then a complete pillow. there was a booth at the country living fair that had the most awesome pillow covers. I wanted two or three for every holiday! next year I'm taking more money with me! lol!
love the skellies!
happy day!

That pillow was one of my faves too! It really is a great gift for med school students and then folks like me who just like cool, creepy skeleton stuff. =)

Hi Kathy, Love this custom pillow. What a great gift for a med student. Love the decorative edge stitch.
Your work is wonderful and a great idea to go with the slip covers.

Hey stranger!

You are sewing up a storm! I like the envelope style pillows, I find them easier to poof and puff. And I like this graphic! Your son is going to study medicine? That is great! A doctor in the family, wish I had one! :)

I hope you had a lovely Easter. I plan to get by more...God willing. Things just get crazier around here and I'm treading water.

Take care,
