New Pillow Designs for September!.....

Thursday, September 2, 2010

"Little Swallow" pillow
W
ith September's arrival,.... I felt it time for a few fresh new designs to be added to my Etsy shop, "Heidi Devlin Design". Of course most of them follow along with my undying love of "Farmhouse Chic" ....which whether it is French, English or good-old American, for me "farmhouse" is fabulous!!!
My new designs are simple, somewhat "vintage-in-feel" & so very charming!...And even though I do love the quiet quality that neutral fabrics offer,...I am having such fun adding a bit of interest to the backs of some of my designs!....Some have backs that are either beige or blue traditional mattress ticking, while others will be showing off the incredible reproduction French prints from the talented designer Kaari Meng from French General!...I'm just "over the moon" with love for Kaari's fabrics!...& have been ordering yards & yards of various prints!...So be watching for more to show up in my shop!....I am planning on stockings & ornaments for Christmas,.... both with not only my signature "burlap & oatmeal-y cotton", but also bits & pieces of these lovely French prints as well! So much to look forward too!

he designs today are all about the "casual feel of wonderful cottons", the "hand-stenciling" which I am very proud to offer,.... & the "lovely workmanship" that I feel is so important in today's world!

F
or me it is so rewarding to be able to design, create & sell such pretty pillows to all of you!...It is simply delightful to hear from many of you...knowing that others share my love of old-fashioned quality as well!......Home-made & Hand-made is definitely alive & well!

I
also would like to remind you all that I love being asked to do "custom designs", which my last photo is all about!...Recently, a lovely client of mine, asked me to create a pillow for her two young sons. She described the room she & her husband were putting together for their newborn & toddler son, & very much wanted to have a very special pillow with their names. Of course I was thrilled to be asked! The pillow turned out so beautifully that I asked my client if I could indeed offer it in my shop! She happily agreed & here it is,....
my sweet "Our Sons" pillow!....Not only is it hand-stenciled on the front, but also has a darling prayer on the back!....Such a special piece!

t was my pleasure today, to show you what I have been up to, with lots more in the works!....Please come visit my Etsy shop soon & take a peek for yourself!!....Thank you all for your continuing support!.... & for reminding me daily how much you too appreciate the "handmade"!
Off to make a little dinner.....

Love Always.....Heidi xo
