From Sweatshirt to Pillow
My daughter had this perfectly lovely sweat shirt that she no longer wanted. Instead of giving it away we decided to re-purpose it and give it as a gift to her best friend.
The girls have been best friends for over 5 years, and my daughter thought this would be a great way for her friend to have something special of hers. That way in the future, when they have moved on in their lives, the miles will not matter and her friend will still have something that once belonged to my daughter and remind her of their friendship. To add some interest to the bottom pocket area, I sewed on some pretty colored buttons. And there you have it. A lovely and meaningful gift for a very special friend.
And here it is with some more pillows that were re-purposed from t-shirts that the girls no longer wore.
