  1. Those are 2 cute! I have been saving old shirts of k's & the boys to maybe one day cut up & make into a quilt. But this looks a lot easier. Love Ya Sis! Lisa

  2. I've always thought this to be a good idea....and it is seemingly so simple....they just don't tell you where to find the time....

  3. Love your shirt pillows, what a clever idea, something I never thought of. Now I know what to do with my husbands old shirts. By the way love your blog. Smiles, Carol mae
