Such a special project. Treasured shirts from a beloved grandfather and a request to make heart shaped pillows.
It took me months – you can get a lot of hearts out of a man’s button-down shirt! Every piece of each shirt was used – scraps were used as stuffing and each button was displayed on a heart.
I am honored to have brought this project to life and am so thrilled with all the hearts.
What to get a new grad? We gave our favorite recent college graduate a Dopp Kit filled with all the things he might need in his desk at his new job – toothbrush, nail clippers, Tums. Come to think of it, these were all the things I needed when I worked in an office! I think it turned out well.
