Recycled T-Shirt Pillow

June 10, 2009 in Tips & Tricks

Last year, my son Ben got this really cool Jack Skellington t-shirt from his sister for Christmas.¬† It instantly became his favorite t-shirt, I mean, in our family Jack is a superstar!¬† He was very upset when he out grew it almost as fast as it became his favorite.¬† He really didn’t want to part with it.¬† So…I took a trip in my way-back machine and thought of something I did when I was younger to some of my favorite t-shirts…I turned them into pillows!

Just take any t-shirt…

Turn it inside out and stitch the sleeves and bottom closed…

 

 

 

Stuff, and zig-zag the neck opening closed and waa-laa!

This makes a great throw pillow for your bed, travel pillow, or sleep-over pillow.¬† It’s so easy, even kids can do it!

  1. Cool project! A Great when you want to preserve a large design that takes up the entire shirt.
    For shirts with smaller designs you can cut the shirt into any shape you want.
