This is a seriously amazing thing.  My husband's grandmother passed away two years ago just before Christmas, and it has been really hard on his family.  His uncle just recently passed as well, and I think this would be an awesome way to give everyone in his incredibly large family to have a keep sake.

Thanks also for the tutorial.  I do have one question:  How do you join the two pieces together?  With all the white thread, it's hard to see where the joining stitches are.

Actually, you don't even sew the two pieces together. They just "snap" in place. You just push each top corner behind each back corner. So that way you can switch out the picture.

I'm glad everyone likes them!!!

What a gift to treasure.  I'm sure there won't be a dry eye in the house.  I was very touched by your post and hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family.  I miss my grandma, too!  Cry
