    That is so special. I'm just now in the process of making one from my Dad's shirts and jeans and yours is such an inspiration.

    That just brought tears to my eyes! What a treasurer for sure! I wish I was into quilting when my dad passed. I wore one of his t-shirts as a nightie until it feel apart.
