Title: Baby Memory Pillow
Post by: Bead brain on May 29, 2007 10:14:50 PM
My daughter has had a really hard time parting with her son's old baby clothes. So she picked out some of her favorites & made this pillow.
 

She's planing a quilt as well.

That is really cool! I've seen a lot of stuff that just takes the fabric and cuts it into squares, and I like how you have kept it recognizable as baby clothes. Awesome idea!

That's cool.  I like how the sleeve on the onsie was left intact.  It shows the size.  Sweet.

What a great idea. My girl is 3 years old now and I still have all her baby clothes! I should try this

Really nice idea, I didn't keep any of my son's clothes when he was a baby. I made a quilt out of his T-shirts when he was in Junior High.

The shirt with the lion still has the buttons & pocket on it and the Moose sweatshirt still has the hood (it's on the back of the pillow).
She really wanted to keep the clothes recognizable.

This was actually designed by my daughter.  I was starting to worry she didn't inherit my "Artsy Fartsy" genes.  I guess with being a full time college student & working & raising a very active 3 year old all by herself she just didn't have the time. She's not taking classes this summer.  I'm glad she's taking time to do some things just for fun.
I'll pass your kind words on to her.  I know she'll be very happy you all liked her pillow.

YOu are too funny about her inheriting your crafty gene. I totally inherited my moms. SHe used to make us skating dresses when we were little and had her own little basket business and I just opened my own etsy and she's having so much fun helping me with ideas

and BTW i love how the pillow came out
