After my father passed away, I kept many of the shirts he was so fond of and used them to create small memory collages for my family. I cut the shirts into 2-1/2" squares and used them to make small framed and matted pictures for my siblings and pieced scarves for his grandchildren. The items serve as simple reminders of my father.
