A record number of pillows have been made lately. Many of them were very unique! Each one was hand crafted to ensure the items were repurposed into a wonderful keepsake! If you love the idea of a Memory Quilt, but want something smaller Memory Pillows are perfect. Memory Pillows come in two sizes: medium ( 16" by 16"), and large (20" x 20").
Medium and Large Patchwork Memory Pillows
The large pillow measures 20" by 20". Five shirts with small logos are needed. A complimentary fabric, in the color of your choice, will be used for the back of the pillow.

Medium Embroidered Memorial Pillows
Memorial Pillows can be made to honor those we have lost.
The Medium pillow measures 16" by 16" and comes in one style. It is made with 1 cotton button down shirt and has a sweet sentiment embroidered over the pocket. this style is very popular.
"This is a shirt I used to wear, whenever you hold it, know that I am there. Love, Dad" or the salutation of your choice.
It is backed with the back of the same shirt and sewn with an envelope closure on the back. This envelope closure allows you to wash the pillow cover.
The front of the shirt is kept whole-buttons and all!
The sweet sentiment is sewn over the pocket.
This is what a past customer had to say about her 5 pillows: "I can't thank you enough for bringing a small piece of our Dad back to each of us."
Medium Sweater Pillows
This pillows measures 16" x 16".
Sweater Pillows have become incredibly popular. They are super snugly because the front and back of the sweater make up the front and back of the pillow. Many of our loved ones have had a favorite sweater. Why not make a beautiful pillow with it and a sweet remembrance. I can make you a pillow or a set of pillows created from any special clothing or fabrics that you cherish. Pillows don't need nearly as many t-shirts as quilts; they are backed with super soft fleece in a complimentary color and pattern.
They can be double-sided with either a repeat of the clothes pattern seen on the front, or with a special blanket that you may have.
The pillow measures 16 inches by 16 inches. One sweater is needed.
Each pillow is backed with the back of the sweater.
I will supply the pillow form.
