Chris returned from the field and his trust field pillow had split a seam (it's just two pieces of fabric serged together with some batting stuffed in) and he asked if I could fix it. I took great pride in ironing some nice seams to reinforce the entire pillow (don't want another blowout).
I had to remove the batting...it was pretty packed, after all this pillow has been around since 2003 and has been to Iraq and tons of training exercises.
I was so happy to show Chris his new improved pillow when he got home! I'll be making him a removeable cover for it and possibly a whole new pillow that I can send when he is deployed.
PS - posting and crafting from me is probably going to be slow for a bit. We are gearing up for a a deployment and something about saying goodbye to my husband makes me fell less than inspired.
