t shirt question

Needing expert advice here.  a friend wants me to make a pillow for her husband from the husbands brothers t shirt.  The brother passed away a few months ago.  I have not sewn anything pillow like or quilt like from t-shirts, so not sure what should be done construction wise.  I have read where you iron on a light weight stabilizer to the shirt when making quilt blocks.  Would I do this with a pillow.  The  t-shirt has the coca cola logo and seems to be very sturdy material.  Some t-shirts are super stretchy, this does have some stretch but not a lot.   since this is a special t shirt for the family I don't want to "wing it" and mess it up.  Thanks
