Beth and I get asked some pretty interesting questions at craft shows. I thought I would take some time to answer them here in case you are wondering the same thing.
do you make them yourself?
Well yes, yes we do. Thanks for asking! I have been sewing for many years and started the animals in 2012. They are all my own design and patterns.
What is the stuffing?
The stuffing is a brand called Fiber-Fill. Beth and I buy it in 10 pound boxes. Each box will do about 15 large pillows. Its is the fluffiest and bounciest I could find. We have tried some other brands and just were not as happy with them
Are They machine washable?
This is a question we can’t always say yes to. Each animal pillow is made with different materials. The minky fabric, denim and cotton pillows can all be washed on a delicate cycle and then either air dried or delicate setting. NO high heat for the minky. It will ruin it. But yes throw it in a pillowcase and wash it. The ones that are made from upholstery I would not wash. You wouldn’t throw you couch in the washing machine would you?
Do you take credit cards?
We happily take credit cards. Thankfully we both have the technology to be able to do that. We do pay a small fee to use the Square App, but it is worth it. Cash is great too and if we know you we will take a check. Paypal also works for ordering on the Facebook page
Do you make memory Bears?
I love to make memory bears! I love the creativity I get to put into them. When you order a memory pillow from Sir Winslow, you get to choose from any of the animals I do. Well, that’s not exactly right. I will attempt to make any animal you want. (I did a squirrel this fall) If it was special to your loved one, I want it to be special for you.
Did I answer them all?
If you have a question, I would be happy to answer it for you. Leave a comment below.
