I’ve been making some memory pillow covers from clothing since December. Until last week, all of the memory pillows I’ve made were fashioned from men’s button up shirts.
On more than one occasion, I’ve had someone ask if I could make a memory pillow cover from a tee-shirt or a sweatshirt. My answer to that question was affirmative, and last week, I finally gave it a try.
My sister, whose husband passed away two years ago, gave me one of his tee shirts so that I could make a pillow cover for her granddaughter. The shirt she gave me held sentimental value for this particular granddaughter who liked to tease her pap when he wore this shirt. I think she’s going to enjoy having this special reminder of her beloved grandfather.
The shirt had the same line “Old Guys Rule” on the back, and I was able to incorporate that into the back of the pillow.
A covered zipper on the back of the pillow cover allows easy removal for laundering. This pillow cover was made to fit a 16″x 16″ pillow form.
If you’d like to have a memory pillow cover made from a clothing item, please contact me. You can use the contact form here on this website or you can find me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/elainesearersewing/ .
I’d be happy to work with you to make a memory pillow that you or a loved one will cherish.
