You Will Need

  • How to make a recycled cushion. T Shirt Pillow - Step 1

    Cut a square out of both layers of your shirt, with image centered. Mine was an 18"X15" rectangle.

    Pin the two squares together along the edge with right sides facing and sew together, leaving an opening just large enough for your hand to fit through.

    Step 4
