Eagle Hoodie = Memory Pillow
A very dear friend of ours just lost her boyfriend/fiancé and companion of over 18 years. He was a good guy with a goofy sense of humor. A veteran that served in Vietnam in the U.S. Army as a Combat Infantryman with the 101st Airborne Division “Screaming Eagles”, he was very proud of that. We considered him a good friend, and we will all miss him very much.
Eagle Hoodie = Memory Pillow?
She asked me if I would make a pillow from this eagle hoodie. She wanted the pouch pockets intact so that she could warm her hands while hugging the pillow. Hmm. Yes, of course we could make it. I hopped online to see what kind of pillow forms were available and promptly ordered a 14 x 28 one. It came in the mail and this is the finished product:
It is slightly wider than it should be but it had to be to maintain the pouch pocket. I put a small zipper in the side seam so that the hoodie can be taken off and washed. The pillow form also has a light cotton covering that can be removed as well. I don’t know if it is a fitting memory of Das, but he is not the kind of man that will ever leave our heart. Rest in peace, my friend. Salute.
