Hubby's Christmas Present

I'm just so proud of it! I got the idea over the summer when I was cleaning out the storage closet at the end of the hall. I came across a box labeled in my husband's shorthand "Do NOT Trash!". Inside were cammies that had been torn and tattered, but he couldn't bear to part with. Some of them are 'old school' that his granddaddy wore while he was in and some of them were digital deserts that Trever wore when he was in Fallujah. I cut them up and made a quilt out of the salvagable pieces. Here's the end result and I can't wait for him to get it!

    Good job!  I'm sure he will be thrilled that they weren't "trashed" but recycled into something he can use over and over.  Hope he loves it too.
