Ok if anyone is like me then you will have t-shirts you just can not bare to part with...
well this is what I did with my old fav t-shirt it's a little plain but it has a sentimental story behind it\

I thought it would be cool to make with old school shirts even..



Here is the tutorial, you can also read it on my website
http://craftbits.com/project/t-shirt-pillow/


Materials:  
Old T-shirt
Filling
Needle and Thread or craft glue.  
Instructions:  

For this project you can use old t-shirts that are in good condition that you may have out grown or accidently shrunk in the wash. Or perhaps its a t-shirt of a loved one who is away or departed. if you are making this project in a large group you can obtain the t-shirts from your local thrift shop.


Start by laying out the shirt flat on a table, you can either sew the edges or glue them the choice is yours, a stitched closer will sit better, but for a craft for kids or a quick craft you can just glue the seams.


Glue or stitch the bottom of the shirt and the arm holes closed, leaving just the neck area open for filling.

A soft fiber fill stuffing will work well, but you can use other items such as beans,foam chunks or old rags.

gently fill the shirt until it is nice and plump looking, then either glue or sew the neck hold closed with small stitches. For a fun effect add some badges to the t-shirt pillow.

It's funny you said this because I have 2 pillows like this on my bed. 1 from each of my sons. They are made out of a onesie from each.
