|recycled tee into a christmas pillow :)|
i decided to use the couple of square ones i did have would make great christmas pillows for the children's bedrooms ... a perfect recycle for some unused items i am not that keen to let go of :)
i used a ruler and a sharpie to square off the design on the front and then cut out the back at the same time so the pillow back and fronts would match in size. then it was to the sewing machine for some straight line sewing and the attaching of a couple of ribbons at the back to secure the pillow case in place.

|a finished pillow in 15 minutes!|
|doesn't look too bad on her bed either :)|
|i love the message on this tee, it reminds|
me of the sound of music :)
outcome: well this is just a great use for old tees that are still treasured but no longer fit. i am converted about tee's being the ideal thing to make all sorts of things out of ... it was just SO easy!
my thanks to all those wonderfully creative people who have recycled their old tee's AND then blogged about it so those of us more challenged crafters can find amazing inspiration from you. my gratitude goes out to you over and over again :)
