I had the opportunity to create additional memory pillows from the marching band uniforms of a local school that is closing. In addition, they gave me choir robes. The robes were black and had a detached stole. The stole is worn with the curve in front and the V in the back. At least that’s how I think they were worn. Some of the stoles were quite dirty at the neckline – especially on the front curve, so I decided to use the deep V side for the pillow. Another maker had used the curved side and then added embroidery to the pillow which was also very nice.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with new items and glad to add the choir robes to my portfolio!
