MEMORY SHIRT PILLOW


"THIS IS A SHIRT THAT I USED TO WEAR.  WHENEVER YOU HOLD IT KNOW THAT I AM THERE.  LOVE"

I love these memory pillows.  I think they are a great way to remember a departed loved one.

MEMORY BEAR




 Memories Bears are my latest project.  They are made from a shirt of a loved one that has passed away.  This was my first time using doll eyes and noses, which I was nerves about but was very easy to do.  I had a pattern for the bear which was also very easy.  The pants I had to design myself and took a little while to get right but I think they turned out well. 

Another version below was made from a sweat shirt (I used it inside out).  He's too cute!!!

DAD'S KINDLE TABLET COVER


Dad's Christmas gift this year was this homemade cover for his Kindle Tablet.  I didn't have a pattern, I just measured the tablet when he was napping.  I then cut out a pic of cardboard the same size to help me work out measurements.  It has clear vinyl corners and strap to hold the tablet in and a strip of elastic to hold the cover closed.   I think it turned out well and I may make more :)  He loves it!!!
