DO NOT THROW OUT
THAT OLD T-SHIRT
HOW TO MAKE A NO-SEW PILLOW FROM AN UPCYCLED T-SHIRT
These are so easy and fun!
Lay Shirt Flat and Pin
Lay the t-shirt graphic-side up and pin both sides together with four to six pins
Cut Out Graphic Area
Cut widely around the logo leaving as much fabric around the graphic as you can
Fold and Cut Small Square
Fold the t-shirt into fours. Cut approximately a 2" x 2" square out of the top right corner through all the layers of the fabric
Unfold and Cut Small Strips
Unfold the t-shirt and cut strips 3/4" wide and 2" long in both layers of fabric
Knot each pair of fringe all the way around. Make sure to leave about five tabs unknotted so you can stuff the pillow
Stuff Pillow and Tie Off
Stuff the pillow with cotton batting or old fabric. Tie the remaining tabs to close up the pillow.
And ta da!
You have finished making an upcycled t-shirt pillow!
Whether it's an old football shirt, concert shirts, greek letters or a vintage sports tee, this no-sew pillow can bring any memorabilia to life.
The only change I would do next time is to use a bigger t-shirt!
