T-Shirt Pillow D.I.Y

Do you have old t-shirts laying around that you never wear anymore? Are they too tight? Do you still love them anyways? Can't bear to part with them? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then this is the tutorial for you!
What You'll Need:
- Old t-shirt
- Scissors
- Pins
- Stuffing
- Sewing Machine 
- Needle and Thread

Step 1: Choose an old t-shirt. Maybe you have one that's too small, or maybe you just need to make room for yet another t-shirt. ;)

Step 2: Take your scissors and cut a square out of your t-shirt. You can make this however big or small you would like. I cut mine pretty close to the graphic, but you can do whatever you like. 

 It should look like the picture above when you have it cut out. The sleeves are gone and you have two pieces of material. A front and a back.

 Step 3: Pin right sides together. The graphic on the shirt should be facing down. After you've sewn it, you will be able to turn it inside out and see your graphic on the front.

 Step 4: Sew right sides together. Don't forget to leave a small hole for the stuffing!!

 Step 5: After you've sewn the right sides of the t-shirt together, (while leaving a hole for you to put the stuffing in) you can turn it inside out and put the stuffing in. You can use a wooden dowel or some kind of stick to help you put the stuffing in. The more stuffing that you have inside your pillow, the fluffier and nicer it will look.

 Step 6: Hand-stitch the hole. Just sew by hand as you normally would.

 Congrats! You've just made a simple, but awesome t-shirt pillow! Now, pat yourself on the back and go  make a delicious sandwich. You deserve it, Champ.


  1. I love this idea! I would also love to see you make a quilt out of all the old t-shirts. That would be cool too. :)
