The idea for Flannel Monster® came about in June 2014 when I wanted to preserve a special t-shirt my daughter had outgrown. A bright idea, a trip to the local craft store and an afternoon at the sewing machine later, this first Flannel Monster® pillow was brought to life. Since then templates have been tweaked, a logo designed and labels purchased.
Each Flïllow™ is designed from a clean upcycled t-shirt, custom selected 100% cotton flannel and coordinating trim, then handmade in Clearcreek Township, OH. While I continue to create these one-of-a-kind decorative pillows, I am working on other product lines including: fun flannel scarves (Flärfs™), pull-over flannel hoodies (Flüdies™), and flannel mini pillow covers (Flövers™). In the works are collegiate Flüdies™, featuring college color plaids/florals and flocked designation letters (i.e. OSU, OHIO, UD, etc.) across the chest.
It is my hope that every Flannel Monster® product goes to a loving home where it is cherished and enjoyed as much as in its making.
