So, I took some of the items of clothing she had and saved them. They were favorite shirts, favorite dresses; different meaningful items. I've had them tucked in my closet, wondering what to do with them.
So anyway, here is the finished product. I used a square picture frame mat to cut the squares out. Each square was 10 x 10. Sewed an X through each one, sewed them across, 5 to a row, with an inch border on each one to make the raggy parts. 8 rows of squares down. There are a couple duplicate squares, to fill in spaces.
Thank you for reading! Have a GREAT day!
This square is from a shirt I bought her right after her diagnosis, because the brain tumor made her forget words or stories or how to say things. So we'd laugh it off, and she loved this shirt!
This square is from the shirts we wear for the Relay for Life in her honor. Our team is "From Dusk til Dawn"
This is from a shirt that had the rhinestone "D" on it, and she got me a matching one with a rhinestone "A" for my name. I loved wearing that shirt. I put my matching shirt square on here, too.
This is from the American Brain Tumor Association's 5k that we did last month, in honor of the 5 year anniversary of my mom's passing.
This is from a shirt we bought together. It had a matching jean jumper. We shared both of them - we did that with a lot of clothes. And jewelry. I couldn't bear to donate this when we donated most of her clothes, because it was from one of our last shopping trips before she got sick.
This was from her FAVORITE dress. She wore this jumper all the time. And she went through some trouble at some point, because she sent it to get drycleaned and it got ripped and she went through a battle with the place to get them to fix it, which they finally did. But it was hysterical, her stories about it!
And this is from the pair of pajama pants I brought her when she was in the hospital the first time. I wanted her to be comfy so I bought her some new pajama pants and jogging pants. I've been wearing these myself, but wanted them as part of the blanket.
