This is a pillow I made from one of my boyfriend's old button-up shirts. All I did was cut a rectangle out in the middle of the shirt along the plaid lines while the shirt was buttoned up, sewed up all the sides on my sewing machine wrong sides facing each other. (going along the lines of the plaid as a guide. oh how easy it is to sew plaid fabric Wink), unbuttoned the buttons and turned it right side out through that space, stuffed it and buttoned it back up! Right now it's just filled with cut up pieces of old shirts and sweatshirts but I just got some stuffing so soon it will be a lot more  cushion-y. So easy.  Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

Oh My! That is rather good! What a brilliant idea! I am soooo going to do that! I love cushions, but I'm not too handy on the old sewing machine, and fitting zips in yet. So using a button up shirt is ideal as I don't have to do it! Cheesy I also love that shirt you used! BRILLIANT IDEA!
