This custom memory shirt offers a few choices of alternative sayings. Use the clothing of a loved one to create a keepsake gift. I will use your provided shirt to create this sentimental keepsake gift.

I have several styles of memory pillows using clothing. I have done flannel, dress shirts, nightgowns, sweatshirts and polos. This is a new sentiment.

I can also create ornaments and cosmetic bags from scraps, as in the sleeves and shirt tails.

This is an example of the shirt without collar. This has a photo which cT

This is an example of some of the bags and ornaments, please click thru the pix.

The sentiment was suggested by a customer, I liked it so much I added it as a separate listing.

Please check you emails! I may have questions about thread colors, etc.

In most shirts the design will be put on a quilt block that will be sewn on . In some shirts, it can be applied directly, but I am finding this is rare. This is mainly due to the type of fabric or color.

I've set the lead time at 2 to 3 weeks to allow time for transit of your shirt to me.

This shirt usually fits an 18" square insert. But some shirt sizes are smaller. So your pillow will come between 16 and 18" square.

Another customer request has been gift certificates for this item. So yes! I can do those. Sometimes the recipient has had a loss but is unable emotionally to go thru the clothing, its a heartfelt gift.

I love customs. Please convo anytime with a special request.

Tell me about osnaburg

I love using osnaburg fabric. Its a natural heavily woven cotton. It has a nice texture that many compare to linen or burlap. Many of my designs are very dense, and it takes the stitches better than a flat fabric. Sometimes there is a random thread that doesn't take the color or bleach.Just like you'd see in linen or burlap. There aren't a lot of them, sometimes we won't see one in a project, other times you'll get one or two. They are super small, visualize a single thread woven in about an inch of the fabric. The fabric may also have a slub, this is not a snag, with a hole as if you snagged a sweater. Nature doesn't create cotton uniformly and most embrace the organic look. Neither are flaws.

I highly recommend this product. They did such a great job and made sure to capture every little detail that means so much to you after the loss of a loved one. They stayed in touch to keep you informed of them working on the items and when to expect them. I am so happy with how they turned out and will definitely use them again.
