I had the opportunity to take this vintage marine uniform and transform it into unique and special memory items. I used the uniform shirt in the neckline area and also moved the arm patches to the front of the pillow. For the zip pouches, I used the hats. I created a straight line at the bottom and boxed the edges. I then added a zipper. To install a zipper into an existing opening, it is easiest to extend the zipper on each side. It makes the zipper much easier to install.
