    So sorry to hear about your husband. My prayers are with you and your family.
    I couldn't find anything on the QB but did find a link on line. http://www.stillcraftyafter50.com/pdf/ShirtProjects.pdf
    Check this out and see if that is what you are looking for.

    If you type in memory pillow in the search bar it does come up, I just checked. You might find the link you are looking for. So sorry about your loss. I lost my only son this past year and I know how hard it is to loose a close loved one. My prayers are with you

    I have a good friend who makes these. It's her business and she has a website. I think it's memories by nancy, or something like that.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...ws-t85052.html. This is a link to pictures of pillows I made from my grandpa's shirts awhile back. I used the front of the shirts as the back of the pillows so I could easily stuff them with pillow forms.

    I did a little googling and thought you might like the idea of possibly including favorite photos in your design: http://www.thejewishchronicle.net/vi...e_right_column

    Sorry to hear of your loss
    I saved my husband's shirts and followed Bonnie Hunter's tips http://quiltville.com/ to take them apart.
    The buttons will be glued on Christmas balls ~ ornaments for our son. Some of the larger shirt pieces will be background for Celtic knots on our son's quilt. Information labels will go with the ornaments and on the quilt letting him know these are also from his Dad.
    Blessings

    I don't have the pattern, but please accept my sympathies.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I hope the pillows will comfort all who receive them. Don't forget to make one for yourself, too. Sometimes we are so busy taking care of others, that we don't take care of ourselves.
