My niece’s initials are HK, and my sister, an ardent thrift store addict, found a t-shirt with those initials and asked me to make a pillow out of it for my niece’s birthday. It has been sitting around waiting for my fickle attention, and today I finally looked at the calendar and counted the days until the birthday and realized I’d better get cracking.
No progress pics because it went so quickly I didn’t pause to think to take them. To stabilize the knit fabric I fused to a square from a sheet that was another thrift store purchase once upon a time. The picture isn’t quite centered due to needing to cut away the neck ribbing.
For the back I made two hemmed red pieces to overlap to make the pillow removeable for washing. A quick seam around the edges, clipped corners, flipped right side out and stuffed, and a pillow is born.
