I am slightly gitty about the ways that I have learned to take an old tee and turn it into something (or multiple things!) absolutely fabulous! Here it is, worn out T-shirt into uber-chic pillow:
Take an old t-shirt, preferably with something written or pictured across the front. Place it on a large workspace and smooth out the surface. Mark a square out with fabric chalk – however big you want your pillow to be . Then make another square inside of the large square – about a 3″ line from the sides and 2 1/2″ from the top and bottom of the shirt. Then cut the large square out, careful to cut BOTH the top and bottom layer of the tee. Keep it flat on your work surface.
I hope you try this totally easy way to make something so cool out of…almost nothing. What a great gift idea, eh? (You could BUY a new t-shirt if you’re thinking gift item!) I may have gotten carried away here…and my husband may be searching for some of his fave t-shirts. Oops. Happy t-shirt-hunting! 🙂
