If you've been a reader here for more than a year or so, you may remember that my Granddad passed away last April. After our family members had a chance to get the things that were most meaningful to them, there were still quite a few pieces of clothing that Granddad wore often, so I've been gradually turning them into keepsakes for various family members. Last Christmas I made some of his old boot socks into some fun Sock Snowmen (Tutorial here).
Then I made most of his Western shirts into Memory Quilts for my Nana, Mom, and Uncle for Christmas.
And just recently, I turned one of his favorite flannel jackets into a Memory Pillow for Nana. It was really easy to.
All you'll need is:
- 16-in Poly-fil Soft Touch Pillow Insert (or other desired size)
- Button-down shirt or jacket.
- sewing machine,
- scissors, etc.
