Don't give a card, gift a memory! These handwriting pillows are a great graduation gift, include your handwritten sentiment and photo. You can't ask for a more personal gift than your handwritten message or recreated into a pillow. Find a letter or note and turn it into a letter pillow, using the person's own handwriting.

Just send me a convo with the image and handwriting -- I will take it from there. No need to send me the original, I can work from a photo or scan (jpeg or png) Clear images work best, and watch for shadows.

I do not necessarily have a limit on words as other sellers. However, not all writing can be scanned. I would be happy to review what you'd like created before you purchase, to determine if its suitable. I will enlarge it to fill the pillow. So you get a different look in some cases than a small piece of paper. But you will get the essence of the writing.

It doesn't have to be a letter. Something as simple as a signature that you want to preserve makes a wonderful memory pillow.

Other items I scan writing are as shown, the organizer bag. I do memory shirt pillows too, I have an entire section on memory items.

Proofs are available -- I will send you a digital item to approve before you purchase at no charge. The best images are those clear. But I've taken some images that clients have said "you probably can't do this" and made it happen.

This is made in true etsy spirit. Not only do I create the image as explained above, but the pillow case is made in my smoke free home. I bring the fabric home by the bolt, cut, apply the image using high heat and pressure and sew the cover.

You also have a choice of bleached cotton or natural osnaburg fabric. Its a wonderful cotton to work with, many compare it to burlap or linen. Many prefer it to burlap as it doesn't have the odor or fray-- and is certainly softer. I have a room of fabric, so if you need something custom just ask. I have had clients do their own shopping and send me their fabric to make into a pillow.

This is made to order, but I don't have a long turnaround time. If you need it sooner, convo. I do not do rush fees, I either can or I can't. I'll be honest and let you know either way.

Please have a valid email and watch for convo's if there are any questions. Provide all personalization info either in the notes section or convo.

Tell me about osnaburg

I love using osnaburg fabric. Its a natural heavily woven cotton. It has a nice texture that many compare to linen or burlap. Many of my designs are very dense, and it takes the stitches better than a flat fabric. Sometimes there is a random thread that doesn't take the color or bleach.Just like you'd see in linen or burlap. There aren't a lot of them, sometimes we won't see one in a project, other times you'll get one or two. They are super small, visualize a single thread woven in about an inch of the fabric. The fabric may also have a slub, this is not a snag, with a hole as if you snagged a sweater. Nature doesn't create cotton uniformly and most embrace the organic look. Neither are flaws.

Wow. Carol, I knew this would be perfect, but you went above and beyond for me and I could not be more thankful from the bottom of my heart. The photos and text I had were lengthy, and I wasn’t sure if it could be done, but you made it happen and this pillow is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Made my mom cry, sister cry, and my husband just ADORES it. Such a sentiment and valuable gift we will cherish forever. I could not be happier with this gift. You are so talented and anyone that is looking for sentimental memory gifts needs to purchase from Carol. Thank you thank you thank you! god bless. -the Vancamp’s
