For most of you that follow our page, you’ll know that my dad passed away in June of this year. When I was back helping to settle some of his affairs, I was able to get a few of his shirts that he used to wear to make into pillows.
It took me a little while to be able to bring myself to make a cut into any of the shirts. So far I’ve still only finished 1, but am hoping to get the rest done by the first of May. I have put a deadline of myself so that I can give them out to the family as I had wanted….and I believe my dad would approve.
With that said, I’d never done one of these and so needed to find some instructions that I felt I could follow in my less than totally with it self. The tutorial I followed can be found here. I love how she explains what to do and I feel it leaves the integrity of the shirt and the purpose in tact as well.
Please see my video showing the finished product below. (I didn’t video actually doing it as I had to stop several times to cry.)
- Sewing Machine
- General sewing notions.
- Please follow the tutorial here as I did. 🙂
Have a great day, and keep creating!!
