In October I made some aprons out of the shirts and a couple of pillows out of the jacket. She stuffed them when I mailed them to her. One when to her son and one will stay with her. This was my first try to make pillows out of a jacket. The fabric was a little thick for my machine, but it worked out fine. I didn't do a perfect job sewing the "UK" patches on. They kept slipping and sliding. But once she stuffed them, they seemed to straighten out somewhat.
Very thankful for our friendship with Marie and thankful she allowed me to try this on one of Richard's fave jackets!!
