Another Finished Project - SIL Pillow

Mrs. Roy's favorite son-in-law is a former Marine.  This t-shirt was a fond reminder of his time in the service but, quite frankly, it was about done for.  Besides the intentional cut in the neckline, both arms had been cut off and there were tears and holes all over this raggedy treasured tee.  So Mrs. Roy's daughter shipped the t-shirt to Mrs. Roy and asked that it be preserved as a pillow.  After much fusing, mending, trimming and clipping - Ta-Da!  And yes, that's camo peeking out from the top of the neckline. 

As Mrs. Roy reviewed the tags for this post, it became apparent that this project was fun just because it involved sewing and it was frugal and ecologically sound because we reused something we already had.  Mrs. Roy does confess to buying the pillow form but everything else was already on hand. 

Another project finished and another happy relative.  Life is good!


  1. I think that's a really good idea -- that would be a great idea paired up with Fifi's t-shirt treasure quilts.

  2. I absolutely love the pillow! What a beautiful lovingly made treasure! You're really good Mrs. Roy!
