custom handmade throw pillows for kids

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to finally unveil my newest product line - personalized throw pillows for children! Perfect for adding the finishing touch to a nursery or a child's bedroom. They've been in the works for 3 months. A friend of mine, Jen, inspired by my olliegraphic collection, came up with this super cute all-fabric, completely handmade interpretation of Meg's drawings, and then went all out perfecting the final product.

To make them, Jen starts out with high-quality upholstery fabrics (we're offering 7 colors to begin with); sews on a face cut from muslin (light, medium or dark); then sews on a hairstyle cut from felt; hand-embroiders the eyes, nose, and mouth; hand-embroiders the name (in print or cursive); and finishes the pillow cover with a neatly sewn flap (so the insert is removable). Needless to say, each pillow is truly a labor of love!

Jen made samples for several different photographers, so I'll be adding more product photos soon to my website and Etsy shop, but I couldn't wait another day to share these pillows! I'd love to hear what you think of them.
