Memory Pillows from Grandpa's Shirts

Thursday, November 25, 2021

A couple weeks ago, a woman posted in our local Facebook group looking for someone to sew her grandpa's shirts into pillows so she could gift them to the family at Thanksgiving. I knew it would be a meaningful project, so I agreed to do it!
