Memory Pillows - Part 1
When a friend asked if I could make a couple pillows out of her Grandmother’s shirts for her Mom I said yes! I have never done this before but I thought I would give it a try. There is a woman on Instagram who makes gorgeous bags out of loved ones leather coats! @piprobins - Gillian Hyde
I began by deconstructing the shirts. Trying to get the most usable material as possible!
Shirt 1 - a kind of woven stretch material
Shirt 2 - denim stretch
Anything can be useful as long as it is not frayed (worn out)! Including these buttons and the front! I am going to use these as the closure on the back!
I was looking for a pattern and remembered a heart pillow I made years ago. I will post a link to it in part 2. I don’t remember what I did with the pattern so I looked at the pilllow and made it up!
So far this is what I have! The pink fabric I starched and starched so it didn’t stretch to bad as I sewed, and it worked pretty well!
This is as far as I got yesterday and I have another project that is time sensitive! Part 2 is coming!
Hope you have a great weekend!
