Title: T-Shirt Pillow
Post by: rubylynns on April 01, 2011 06:32:56 AM
Ok so I just started to embroider a few weeks ago.  I knew how to sew and I have had a machine for years, but for the most part it sat and gathered dust. When I started embroidering, it inspired me to do other things too.  I made this pillow for my son.  This was his favorite t-shirt and it was to small so I turned it into a pillow!



I hooped the top and back stitched a space fabric into the collar, he loves earth so i made sure that it centered.



The back is a Sublime Stitching pattern and completely back stitched.  My son has a love of all things space so he loves this. 



Thanks for looking and I would love feedback, comment or criticism.  I'm still learning so I welcome all of it!

This awesome. What a great idea for preserving one of your son's favorite things, I'll have to do this when mine gets bigger (right now his shirts wouldn't even be toss pillows!).

You'd be surprised how much they stretch. This shirt is only a 2T.  I couldn't believe how big it ended up being.

Oh wow, then I could do it now as he just grew in to 3T. Thanks for sharing!
