"Absolutely beautiful pillow! A lot of love went into making it."

Makes a wonderful personalized gift for animal lovers.

The Artistic Process:

Each item is an original work of art. The artist first communicates with you to learn about your pet and the story you are looking to tell through the portrait. Is your pet sweet? feisty? happy? lazy? grumpy? She then sketches out the portrait and creates a color palette and selection of colorful textured fabrics that will will bring out the essence of your furry friend. Next, the artist cuts the individual fabric like puzzle pieces. The portrait and pillow are then hand sewn together by the artist on her vintage treadle sewing machine she calls "Bessie."

Here are the steps:

  1. Place an order for your Custom Pet Pillow Fabric Portrait.
  2. The artist calls you to learn about your pet and to collaborate with you about colors and fabrics. (Please be sure to include your number with the order).
  3. Provide the artist with a favorite photo to be used as a guide. Email is preferred. (The artist will give you the information for sending her the picture.)
  4. The artist hand sews your pillow on her vintage treadle sewing machine.
  5. Your pillow is carefully packaged and sent to you.

Size: Pillow: 14" x 14" or 18" x 18". Sizes are approximate.

Made in: Hemlock, NY

Lead time: Approximately 3 to 5 days from when the artists begins her work. Items will be made in the order they are received.

Amazing process, amazing product!

Wendy was incredible - the process of making this pillow was much more involved than I imagined but the end result was so impressive. We exchanged numerous emails and pics as she selected fabrics and asked for details about how our lovely cat looks and how his personality is reflected in his appearance. The finished pillow is incredibly detailed and fantastically well made. I am so impressed with Wendy’s skill and NOBODY expected a pillow like this - not a photo copy on cheap fabric from a big box store but an heirloom piece that will be cherished for years to come. 10/10 would recommend!
