DIY | Easy T-Shirt Pillows

I will be the first to say that it’s hard for me to get rid of things sometimes (all the time). I may no longer want it for its intended purpose but I can find tons of other ways to use the same item.

In this case, I took clothing that I was done wearing and turned them into pillows for my son’s room. He has a black and white themed bedroom and I had some black and white items that were headed to Goodwill. You know what that means?!?!?! DIY PROJECT!!!!! I’ve even included pictures of me wearing the items just for fun. (Ha ha)

My friend that has a sewing machine sewed 3 sides, and I hand stitched the 4th side after inserting the cushion. You could easily hand stitch all the sides, use iron on tape, or my personal favorite, a hot glue gun. In this DIY project, the fabric was free, the cusions were about $6 each at Wal-Mart and it was fast and easy to do. Grant loves the soft feel of the cotton and I love that he has unique throw pillows with mixed prints for his big boy room. Enjoy!
