Memory pillows

 Back in February I made these six custom memory pillows for a customer. She called at the end of last year asking if I could make pillows from clothing of a loved one's clothing.  He passed away a year ago this past March 1st and she wanted a pillow for herself, but also to gift pillows to his sons and his wife.


She picked star patterns for hers and the wife's pillow, but wanted simple patchwork for the sons'.  She had a nice variety of shirts so it was easy to match them up to make the pillows.
 

I embroidered custom labels for the backs of the pillows as well.
 



Pillows are a nice way to preserve memories of loved ones, especially when we want to spread the love between many siblings or if a quilt seems a little too expensive.
