Cool **Military Mommas** Remember Me Pillows for kids with deployed parents



Is Daddy or Mommy deployed? Keep them close with a Remember Me Pillow



Each Remember Me Pillow is about 12 inches high and 4-5 inches wide depending on the photo sent.



You can decide on the backing of your choice from here Fabric Gallery and Fabric Gallery



I will add a corresponding ribbon to the bottom of your pillow




In March 2008 my husband headed off on his fourth deployment. In the past they've been relatively short 3-4 months. This deployment however was set to last 7 months. As my husband left and I worked on curtains for my teenage girls' room I thought about making them matching pillows. As I thought some more I wondered about putting their Dad's picture on the pillows so that he would be close to them during the deployment. From that idea I made each of my children a "pillow" with their Dad's picture on it. In order to personalize them for each of the children I backed them with a material of their choosing and added a matching ribbon. From there the "Remember Me Pillows" were born.



My hope is that each Remember Me Pillow brings as much comfort to the child that receives them as my children got from them during his last deployment.



If you would like to order more than one Remember Me Pillow with the same photo I will give a discount per additional pillow in the same order. You may choose to add different fabric to the back to customize them but the front photo needs to be the same photo.



The first pillow is $11.00, each additional pillow is $9.00. Shipping is $3.00 per order first class shipping, $4.95 per order priority shipping Pink hearts, pink stars, blue dots and green dots minky is also available for an additional $1.00 per pillow

I made my first "mommy" for a single momma deploying to Iraq. I wanted to cry thinking about that momma having to leave her little one.
