I have two flannel plaid shirts and would like to do something useful with them. Any suggestions?

I saw someone reconstruct an ottoman with fabric. Something along these lines would be amazing.

Thanks in advance.

Unless it's a really tiny ottoman and/ or really huge shirts, there probably won't be enough fabric to use them on something like an ottoman.

Most shirting isn't heavy enough for furniture use, but some wool work type shirts certainly are : )

Not only is there probably not enough fabric for a large project, but the plaid will need to be matched, a process which eats yardage.  I know you're thinking of furniture but you most likely won't have enough for more than a pillow or something.  You could possibly use a touch of the plaid as a trim on something else. 

I'm seeing completely different items, like a little boy's pajama set or a doll's lumberjack shirt.  One of my little grandsons had an adorable pair of tiny, plaid pajamas made exactly like a grown man's while he was a toddler.  Too cute.  Or use it to line a winter purse.
