Creating keepsakes from t-shirts: Gifting a friend who gave 110%

t-shirt pillow case made from old t-shirts

(LINCOLN, NE) January 3, 2020—Recent MemoryStitch customer Jeff Robinson is a Senior Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force, currently working as a United States Professional Military Education Instructor at the Senior NCO Academy in Alabama.

Robinson, who was looking for a special gift for a close friend and coworker, was one of the first people to receive a T-Shirt Pillow Case after MemoryStitch’s release of the new product.

The pillow case will be gifted to Robinson’s friend who has recently fulfilled his obligation as an instructor and will soon be deployed to the Middle East. According to Robinson, the shirts used in the pillow case portray the different flight rooms that his friend and coworker taught out of.

“They represent the lives that he has impacted,” said Robinson, speaking of the four black, blue and white t-shirts that make up the pillow case.

“This pillow case will serve as a reminder that at the end of the day he can lay his head on his pillow knowing that he fulfilled his mission with integrity and gave the Academy 110%,” said Robinson.

Now, all MemoryStitch customers have the opportunity to create a pillow case using t-shirts. Like Robinson, they may choose to give them away as heartfelt gifts, or may purchase them for themselves as a way to showcase a few very special t-shirts.

"Our mission is to create one-of-a-kind keepsakes using our customers’ well-loved t-shirts. Pillow cases are another product that allow them to do just that,” said Steve Nabity, Chief Energizing Officer.

Pillow cases are now available on their website. For more information on MemoryStitch and their latest product releases, visit or call 855-792-4205.
