I have been making a lot of T shirt yarn and I came up with this way to use the logo/artwork of some of the t shirts. This one had a big bleach stain on the back which made it fine to cut into yarn, but the logo was untouched and I couldn't bear to throw it away. This is what I came up with:





I really like how it turned out. I used the fuzziest yarns that were in my stash to make it look more monstery. If you would like to see the steps I took to make the pillow please visit my blog.  Smiley

I did visit the blog, I don't usually, but T-shirt yarn intrigued me.

Here is the tute linked off of your yarn.

I just want to know how you made it fuzzy?

I would like to have some logo shirts like that to make pillows because that is awesome. Great work!

To lovesclutter:

The yarn that I used for the pillow is actually some kind of bulky weight yarn that was given to me. It is not t shirt yarn. I used the t shirt yarn made from this shirt for the other projects on my blog, this was just the artwork of the shirt that was left over after cutting it into yarn. Sorry if that caused confusion. The white yarn is mystery yarn that someone gave me in the hospital but I will explain it best I can: it is bulky, fuzzy and uneven. The sparkly brownish yarn is eyelash yarn that I got from Michael's. I hope that helps!

Oh, thank you so much for clearing that up. It is so well made, and so customized, that I am amazed. I may try this one day. I have a list of what I want to learn. But

I am proud of my non-traditional crochet things. And this pillow rocks for sure. I would love it in my home. Grin

ETA I had to hit this rocks. It so does.
