Over the past two weeks, I have been working on a new custom burlap pillow order for a gift shop in Alpena, Michigan. I am thrilled to be able to partner with another Michigan small business to sell my handmade burlap goods! This is my largest pillow order to date since starting Lina and Vi, and it was an exciting challenge to be able to sew a set of new custom designs for the shop.
For a few days, I had a room full of pillows in my house, and it was quite the sight. I'm happy to report that they are all packaged and ready to ship up north, and that one of the new custom designs is now available for purchase in our Etsy shop.
Just in time for the warmer months, our new burlap Up North Michigan pillow is a way to personalize your decor for the coming Fall season. Of course, mostly Michiganders will understand the lingo of 'up north'. Here in the southern part of the lower peninsula, it typically means that you are heading on vacation to an area in a northern part of the lower peninsula. Heading to the upper peninsula is also included in heading up north in Michigan, but more often than not, most of us journey the shorter drive north in the lower peninsula to get away and enjoy the beautiful Michigan landscape.
The Up North Michigan design is available in black or brown text. These rectangular burlap pillows measure 10 inches by 23.5 inches long, and they are backed with a solid cream canvas cotton fabric. They add interest and pop to a couch or loveseat with a sweet reminder of our happy places. Are you a fellow Michigander and do you vacation up north? I'd love to hear what cities you visit!
