I have two t-shirts and one sweatshirt that I bought on three different vacations. What they have in common is embroidery. The sweatshirt was a favorite and as with many favorite pieces of clothing got too much use and stains. The embroidery was still very nice so I kept it. Same for the shirts. Then the idea came to me to make them into pillows. At first I thought I would cut out the embroidered part but then realized the fabric was fine for making the pillows.

I don't know how long I have held on to this idea but since moving to NH I realized I should go ahead and tackle this project. With advice from daughter Emily who surpasses me with her sewing skills and borrowing one of her sewing machines,
