The Secrets are Ready!



First, I added a border, all the way around each block, making each block 18 inches square.  I forgot to take a photo!  Then I cut an 18-inch square from the front and back of each of Bob's shirts.



Before I went to NYC, I asked around and found someone who was willing to do some machine embroidery for me.  She did a wonderful job.  


After stitching the embroidered patches below the pockets of each shirt front, the front became the pillow cover back.



I love using shirt fronts for pillow cover backs.  I used 18-inch pillow forms, and they look overstuffed, just the way I wanted them.  I sure hope my girls love these.

Not a great photo, but it shows Bob wearing one of these shirts last year on our cruise.


May your bobbins always be full,
