Memory Huggers - Pillows

Memory Hugger projects can be made from loved ones shirts or any clothing really. These memory projects can be very comforting to have something to hold on to during time of grief and also as a keepsake for a loved one from favorite clothing.  Memory pillows can be made from almost any article of clothing you want and can include an embroidered message displayed or hidden.  Select one of our patterns from Funky Friends Factory and make a memory critter from Grandpa’s shirts or use those baby outfits you just couldn’t bear to give, sell, or throw away.  You can also go thrift store spelunking for some fabulous fabric finds as well.  Want to be the favorite Nanna?  Make and personalize those grandbabies the cutest darn stuffie to hug and to hold (and drag around of course)!
