A easy and great way to revive an old shirt

On zips thanks to the buttons! super easy and great for using old materials :o)

No backing on this but you could add if your fabric is thin.




  1. Step 1 1

    Find out an old shirt - or head to a charity shop/ thrift store (I bought this for a few pounds - not at all my type but I knew this would look great as a cushion!)

  2. Step 2 2

    Cut of the sleeves - ha ha this looks like a hawaiian shirt now!

  3. Step 3 3

    Make a template allowing for 1-2 cm seams all the way round. Tack to the fabric and then cut out. Keep the buttons fastend when cutting.

    I measured the cushion after buying (I have another shirt to do which is bigger) thankfully this was big enough (keep in mind is buying - I was lucky ha ha!)

  4. Step 4 4

    Once cut, pin and tack the fabric together "inside out" (buttons on the inside)

  5. Step 5 5

    Sew alongside your tacks :o)Keep the buttons fastend when sewing

  6. Step 6 6

    Turn inside out and check the sitching and sizing before triming the seams if needed.

  7. Step 7 7

    Add your cushion and close with the buttons! Super easy to remove and wash(keep washing instructions from the shirt)

  8. Step 8 8
