Keepsake from CIW inmates

I saw this crochet throw pillow case inside the cabinet buried in the pile of untidy throw pillowcases and bed sheets. It brings back memories that made me a little bit sad. It was given to me by one of the women inmates at the Correctional Institution for Women (in Mandaluyong) after a visit and interview with some of them. 

This throw pillow case is one of the many handicrafts being created by the inmates to support their personal finances inside the prison. 

On this note, I wish them all well and hopefully they (those I’ve personally talked with) were already released from the institution and living a normal life now.
