Good morning.
Great ideas to begin the day.It is quite easy to make. I´ll keep in mind.
Thanks for sharing.

Now i regret i didn't get the cheap souvenier t-shirt in London. I alwasy thought no one will wear it, so why bother to buy. he he.




Very cool idea! My daughter has some t-shirts she's sentimentally attached to and we thought about this idea, though now we're leaning toward incorporating them into a quilt. Hope that turns out as nice as Wille's pillow!

Superfin kudde! Tyvärr tror jag inte att t-shirten sonen fick från sin farmor med bladdrigt tryck och "I was in Amsterdam" blir lika cool som din... :)

I was just about to get rid of three t-hirts that I love but didn't really know what to do with. You truly are a miracle girl... I don't know how you think of this stuff, but I'm really glad you do! :)


I heart your pillow.
Milton would be proud.


Thanks for sharing us this bright idea! Now I know what to do with our memorabilia college/club t-shirts!

Very cool idea. I like that the bottom is simply folded inside - one less seam (and no zipper!) sounds good to me!


Good Morning Benita! I love that pillow and NYC too (hometown). Yesterdays post about orange also made me think of NY - Zabar's and their great orange logo. It looks great on their white mug - now I am wondering if they have t-shirts!

I have been planning on doing this with my concert tees that are either too small or never get worn. Thanks for the step by step! This is just the motivation I needed to drag them out of my sewing pile and finally do it.


love it !!

Very cute! I've done this with the boy's favorite T-shirts that he's outgrown. He would insist on wearing them even though they bared his midriff, so we make a "lovey" pillow out of them. Great idea for souveneir T's!


Love it! Så himla coolt!


Oh man! I just bought a t-shirt during my recent trip to NYC for exactly the same purpose. But sewing knits still scares me, so I'm so happy to find your tutorial!

Cute! I am going to have to give that a try!


Looks good.


What a great idea to re- use a pillow.


I've done the same with shirts. I've left the buttons on so the run in the middle and they've turned out quite nice! :)


Haha, great idea! Also, the pillow actually matches the bedding!



Benita, thank you for posting this, I've been thinking about this very project for the past two weeks, trying to work out the logistics. Now I can put my brain to rest!



It's great idea, I will use it!

Oh wonderful !!
I have many souvenir t-shirts I only keep because they are souvenirs, and I love this idea ! So, no need to buy new pillows for my new house anymore ! I will use mine and customize them !
I love love love this idea, thank you !!


Ok, this is awesome! I'm definitely going to try this with my I<3NY shirt! Thanks!


Loooooooove this! I've featured it in a DIY roundup on my site today. Thanks for the great ideas!!

amy from ara133photograhpy

awesome idea, thanks so much!!! I have a bunch of old tees that I never wear but that are sentimental, this would be a perfect use for them. Thanks! :) amy


I wanted to let you know that I featured your t-shirt pillow on my 10 Ways to Showcase Special T-Shirts post at http://thedomesticatedprincess.blogspot.com/2012/11/from-t-shirt-to-treasure-part-3.html.


Thank you!

I love the pillow idea, as you can see by the picture https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/655791, I make these pillows for all of my guest rooms. I also spent this weekend on crafts, I made a bunch more pillows out of old cardigans. I'm just too lazy to put zippers in, so I love using old shirts or sweaters, anything that has buttons down the front.

Love you site, have been reading for a few years!
