I want to share with you one of my favorite Etsy sources for pillows. If you are not familiar with Etsy, it is a commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items as well as art and craft supplies. In other words, many shops come together and sell under the Etsy hub. It’s worth checking out if you haven’t ever.
Many times it seems like all of these shops have the same pillows, but not so with DecoYellow.
It’s handmade and well crafted. Amy is a young mom who also owns an etsy shop where she designs and makes pillows.
She also made me this pillow. It wasn’t at her shop. I saw it at another and asked her if she could make it, but with a custom font. And, of course she could! So, never hesitate to ask for custom pillows.
Amy says the shop balances her practical and artistic sides well. She sews her contemporary designs on her 1960’s vintage sewing machine. She loves crisp lines and bold colors. So do I! It’s why I am so drawn to her designs. Every one of them. And, I love the soul and story behind her sewing. She sews to be like her mom, who she lost when she was 18 years old. And, she donates a dollar of every order to cancer research for her mother.
And, I’m not sure if this is weird, but I’m always drawn to those who live or have lived a place that I’ve lived. Amy lives in Lehi, Utah. I lived in Salt Lake City for 3-4 years. So, I feel a strange connection, just because I’ve seen and enjoyed some of the same sites she sees and enjoys. Okay, now that I’ve confessed that quirk, does that make me a weirdo? There is a reality show, called Downsized, that plays on the WE channel that I love watching because it’s shot just up the street, 30 minutes away or less. I’ve been to all of the places they go to on the show. That totally slipped out of my mouth. Another confession. Total creeper? Love me anyway, please.
Back on topic… I want to share with you some of her fabulous pillow designs. She didn’t ask me to, she’s not paying me to and she doesn’t even know I’m planning to do it. But, seriously, you guys need to know about her and her pillows!
Oh, and did I mention, she’s fantastic to work with? After I ordered my navy chevron pillows, I noticed Kirsten Krason has one just like it behind her in her latest profile pic. Copy cat. Just playing. I am glad she noticed these as well, though!
Be sure to visit Amy’s Etsy shop, DecoYellow to check out her designs. It’s all reasonably priced, too!
