A quick, no-sew, super-easy craft that reuses and recycles!
- •Take a t-shirt.This one is a too-small Goodwill find. I wanted to make into a Xmas gift for my favorite Directioner.
- •Cut off the hem, sleeves and neckline. Cut up the sides.Try to keep it straight while you cut. You're aiming for two even pieces, a front and a back.
- •Cut a square out of each corner.Keep the pieces lined up, cause it's crucial for the next step.
- •Cut the edges into strips, like a fringe.CUT THROUGH BOTH LAYERS AT ONCE AND KEEP THEM TOGETHER. Sorry to yell, but you gotta.
- •Tie the top and bottom layers together. Match the "fringe" strings together and tie a knot.I tried to get pics of this, but it was impossible with a black shirt.
- •Leave one side open, then stuff it.I gutted an old, ugly pillow and used its stuffing. You can get blank pillowforms at a craft store, too. Or a bag of fiberfill. When you've stuffed it to your liking, tie the last side up like you did the other three.
- •Finished product!
- •Easy peasy! A fun way to keep favorite t-shirts you've outgrown, or to make commemorative pillows of concert tees, race tees, etc.I did this one in a hurry, but you could prepare it more carefully and precisely with rulers and chalk and stuff if you're going for a cleaner look.
