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

    Turn your t-shirt inside out and smooth it flat. Next, sew/serge a straight line from the bottom hem up past the sleeve to the shoulder seam. Do this on both sides. I ‘eyed’ mine up but you could certainly mark a straight line from the bottom up past the sleeve to the shoulder seam.

    With the front neckline facing upward, stitch from one side seam to the other. Again, you can mark a straight line from side to side but I just visualized my line.
