I also was hired by a friend of my mother-in-law's to make pillows out of commemorative t-shirts from her family's annual reunions. I talked her into adding piping and they turned out pretty cute. These are the front sides . . .
. . . and these are the backs.
I'm really annoyed that I accidentally packed away the kids' new Easter baskets before taking good photos of the kids posing with them. I followed this tutorial for the general direction of the basket, but I went rogue and added some trim to the design. All of the fabric and trim was courtesy of the amazing sewing stash I inherited from Corey's grandmother when she moved out of her condo.
For my daughter's friend, Mia, I sewed a simple little padded zipper pouch to hold a gift card for her birthday. The fabric also came from Granny's stash.
I'm really really mad I forgot to take pics after I finished these bags for my neighbor's sister. I made five of the usual Peek-a-boo Toy Sacks that I have made a million times before, but the backs of them incorporated some special old t-shirts worn by her sons. I love the fabrics I found to pair them with, which were also part of Granny's stash.
I need to get back into taking nicer photos of my finished products!
