I have really been having fun making pillows lately! And this one was extra fun because it is a TOTAL up-cycle!
I used my husbands old dress shirt as the fabric!
He gave me a pile of them—and so I have all kinds of plans for the rest of them!
But for this project I started by cutting off the arms, collar and pocket.
Then I cut and re-aligned the seams so that the buttons could be used to make the cover easy to remove and clean.
Then I sewed all 4 sides inside out and then put it on the pillow.
***I really can’t give you amazing sewing advice,
I am no pro—I never measure anything…I just use the eye-ball-it technique***
I am hoping the pictures show you enough about how I did the assembling!
This is the pillow back together.
I liked it at this point but also wanted to add a little something….
I made a flower out of 4 round circles of fabric.
Then I hot glued the four circles folded in half and then half again into place.
Finally I sewed them into place and added a button.
What do you think? Do you like the final look?
I think it fits in well with my beach-y themed decor!
