My coworker's mom finally received a life-saving kidney transplant about a week ago.  My coworker has documented the entire process on her facebook page, it's pretty inspiring, and shows how important organ donation can be to a family:


My coworker asked me if I could make her mom a silly/fun/colorful gift to celebrate the amazing gift she's already received.  I thought a funky cute pillow might be fun:

My coworker has a pillow she's going to use to fill it, I just made the cover.  I used weldbond to attach the felt to the fabric, it worked so well! 

Thanks for looking, I hope she likes this little guy Smiley

This is so quirky and fun! I hope your coworker and her mom love it Smiley

Yeah!  That is brilliant - that looks like one happy kidney!

This pillow is awesome!  I am sure that both your co-worker and her mum will love it!
