CMH Studio  Meet Me Behind the Scenes at Cheeky Monkey Home Studio

I get asked a lot, “Who makes your pillows?” and “Do you have a shop..?”, and I thought it would be fun to invite you into the Cheeky Monkey Home studio, to show you where I cut, stitch and sew all of my products.  Come on up to my third floor home studio…..it is tiny, but we can all fit!come-upstairs

This is where I design, cut and sew most everything that I make at Cheeky Monkey Home. The wool felt I use is made in Germany, and it comes in several thicknesses and endless colors.  I keep many bolts of felt and supplies in my studio, and I have a small storage space nearby for my product inventory.  Otherwise, I try to get my supplies locally, and I have some amazing suppliers right here in Massachusetts!

CMH Studio  Customize Your Pillows at Cheeky Monkey Home

Hello, and Happy New Year!  This year I really got to know my customers, and I learned that I need to let people know that—YES!— we do custom pillows and personalization (a lot!!).  While there are many colors and designs on our Etsy Site, we also love to do custom orders.  A custom pillow (with a personalized message on the back) makes an amazing and memorable gift. I want to share some of my favorite custom designs in 2014, just to get your creative juices flowing….who knows, you may have a custom vision in mind too!

 

The most common request I get is for a new color combination or a different size of something I already offer.  Below are custom versions of the bunnies, painter’s palette and world map pillows we sell in our shop.  As much as I like the originals, the new combinations are pretty special too!
