I have been making reading pillows and matching bookmarks. I also made the bears for a lady that lost her 14 year old son. They are made from his clothes. Thanks for looking. Hugs and blessings, Gail Most of the designs for pillows are from Memories in thread.

You have been very busy! Each pillow is a work of art as well as a way to encourage reading. They are wonderful. Love the idea of the bears. I have a friend that makes memory quilts or pillows out of their clothes. I like this idea for when something as large as a blanket is not needed. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you. My daughter made a quilt for me from her brother's clothes after he died. It means the world to me. (so does she)

Making those teddies was such a wonderful way to give your friends some comfort on the loss of their son. The teddies are just wonderful!

I have to get around to making a reading pillow. Yours really inspire me to get started.

First, my heart goes out to this lady and any more that have lost a child. This is such a great thing to make with his clothing, for young or old to hold dear, just to 'smell' him. I hope this comforts her. I can read what they say though, can you tell me please?

Now for the pillows. I love your work and the fabrics you used. I have the pig from Kreative Kiwi, but haven't had an idea what to make with him. Thank you for this idea.
That another reason I love Miss Veronica's providing this site for us all to share, relate, encourage and inspire!
I also see other stuffies on the side. If you made them would you like to show us these?
Have a blessed day-Toogie

Thank you Toogie. There isn't any writing on the bears but, I did give her a little poem that goes with them. It is: This bear is made from clothes I used to wear When you give them a hug, know that I am there. Those are mostly my sock monkeys on the side. I love them! I have the one that I made for my son when he was little and he would have been 48 this past June. It is really about worn out. Thank you for your kind words. Gail

toogie by toogie 10d ago

I sure thought I could make out 'love you' or something on the bears stomach. I have read and down loaded the poem you speak of.
I am so sorry for the loss of your son. Was he a child or grown, if you don't mind me asking? Any age would be heartbreaking. I would love to see his 'worn out' only if you'd like to share. Sometimes it is healing to talk, but I sure can understand if you still can't share. When our hearts are still too full, its hard to let anything more in or out. I am no therapist, by a long shot, but I do wish you the best. I know your daughter means the world to you, just like he did. I'm sure the quilt is beautiful.-Toogie

He was 30 years old. I will put a picture of the sock monkey up one day soon in sewing. I had a senior moment about the bears... The mom ask me to put I love you on each one of them. It has been seventeen years for my son but, it seems like the Lord is still leading me to people like this lady so that I can witness.

toogie by toogie 9d ago

Yes, so often He seems to do that. I would love to see the sock monkey and the quilt, thank you. Have a nice day-Toogie

thanks so much. She loved them. I, too, lost a son in 2000 so I know some of what she is going through.
