Arky -- featuring my Mom's old T-shirt :)

Hi everyone :) 

My Mom was so impressed with my T-shirt that I turned into a pillow, that she asked me to take her beloved old T-shirt (she's had this shirt since Adam was a TODDLER!) and turn it into a pillow :) 


Here is the back of the T-shirt that I used as the front of the pillow :)





And here is her pillow :) 





On the front of the T-shirt was a smaller version of the pattern on the back -- so I made her a little mini-pillow out of the front design also :) 






Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
