Do you have a lot of old t-shirts laying around? Have you ever thought to make a pillow out of a t-shirt you don't wear anymore? Well this simple tutorial will show you just how to do that so you won't have to donate your favorite tee's!

T-Shirt Throw Pillow Tutorial

Materials:

  • T-shirt, washed and pressed
  • Quilter’s ruler
  • Rotary cutter with cutting mat
  • Standard sewing supplies
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • Compass (only for round pillows)

Instructions:

  1. Place the T-shirt, right side out, face up on the cutting mat.
  2. With rotary cutter and quilter’s ruler, cut out the shirt’s graphic, leaving about 3-1/2 in. on all sides, making sure you cut through the shirt’s front and back layers. (To make a round pillow, use a compass to draw the cutting outline.)
  3. Put front and back pieces together, right sides facing.
  4. Pin in place.  
  5. With a straight stitch and a 1/2-in. seam allowance, sew along edges. Leave a 3-in. opening to turn pillow through.
  6. Turn right side out and stuff with fiberfill. Sew closed.
