How to Make a Shirt Pillow

Make your own shirt pillow

I found a Boston Red Sox shirt and I wanted to make it into a pillow cover. This is a simple and easy DIY to add just a little something extra to a room. I need to get working on my sons Boston Red Sox room I have so many things to do to make it just right. This pillow was one of the things we needed to add.

Here are the steps I took to turn it into a shirt pillow cover. You can do it the simple way or add a little to it to make it a little more special. It’s up to you on the extra steps you want to make. I have made some suggestions on what other things you can do like adding a pocket or making it a zip off cover.

Turning your shirt into a pillow cover

Filling in the neck hole for the shirt pillow

You will need to fill in the neck hole first. Take a piece of fabric and pin it to the inside of the shirt hole. I used white t-shirt fabric for the hole.  Once you have it pinned sew it to the inside of the shirt hole.

 

Sew the sleeves shut

I sewed the sleeves shut from the right side up. Pinch the edges of the shirt together and sew it. Now you could also cut off the sleeves and sew it shut that way. I like the look of keeping it like a shirt for a pillow. You could go a step further and add a zipper and create a pocket.

Sew or add a zipper to the bottom of shirt

Put the pillow inside the shirt and sewed the bottom shut. You could also add a zipper to the bottom of the shirt to make it a removable cover. I love the look of this shirt pillow it adds just that little extra thing to the room.

Dog Bed Made From Old Pillows

DIY Dog Bed

Have you ever wondered what to do with your old pillows? Even after washing them they have the life sucked out of them. I always hate throwing these things away. My dog recently tore apart her bed so was sleeping on dirty clothes in the laundry room poor puppy! After buying new pillows last week I decided we could use the old pillows and make her a new bed.

I had a lot of pink camo fabric from a project I had never done. So I thought why not use this for the dog bed. So I cut out two pieces at 52 inches long and as wide as the fabric. I may have gone a little too big! OOPS. After I had filled it with pillow filling my children exclaimed: “that’s like a big bean bag for the dog holy cow!”

This is a simple Dog bed I promise 🙂

Things you will need

  • Cute fabric
  • Thread
  • Old Clean Pillows

Making Your Dog Bed from Old Pillows

Step One

Take your desired fabric and cut it out to desired length and width. Just make sure you cut out two pieces. I seriously cut ours out so big at 52 inches long. I would maybe do yours a little shorter like 30 or 40 ish inches long for a big dog.

At 52 inches long you could make it like a bean bag and let your kids use it they would be happy about that.

Step Two 

Sew around the edges with the cute side facing in. I sewed in a zig zag to help keep it better togeather. Make sure you leave an opening for the stuffing I left almost 10 inches on the one end.

Step Three

Turn inside out so the cute side is now on the outside.

Step Four

Start stuffing it. I cut the pillow cover and took out the stuffing and put it inside the cover. Make sure you wash the pillows first so you start with clean stuffing. You can also add sawdust into the bed. Most dog beds have sawdust in them.

 

Step Five

Sew the opening shut.

ENJOY Your dog bed or child bag 🙂 

So my dog wouldn’t look at me to take her picture on the bed. She’s old and grouchy 🙂 the bed is a little lumpy but I expect it to flatten out as the stuffing settles.

 

 

Cheap Blanket: Envelop Pillow Cover

Easy envelop pillow plaid black and red

So I bought a cheap blanket because I loved the plaid pattern. I bought it from Shopko when they had a sale before the holidays. I think I paid $3.99 for the blanket. This blanket is soft so it makes laying on it more comfortable. I am considering making more envelope pillow covers from different fabric styles 🙂

I bought this blanket with the intention of turning it into something more functional for our house.

The size of the blanket I bought was 50 in by 60 in. I used 16 X 16 pillow insert. You could use a larger pillow insert if you use the bigger blanket like I did I had plenty of fabric left over.

First Step

Cut the blanket in half lengthwise you don’t need to worry about the line being cut perfect you will be sewing and tucking in the ends.

Second Step

You will then want to fold down the one end and sew it I folded it a lot in this pic but just a little bit is fine. I was worried about cutting off the end. I think I cut off like 3 inches lol.

Third Step

Then you will take the sewed end and fold it in half over the pillow finished side facing the pillow. When you turn the pillow cover the right way the sewed end will be what shows. You will then need to pin it as close to the pillow as possible on the side of the pillow. Be careful not to get the pillow when pinning it. you will be taking the pillow out once it’s all pinned.

Fourth Step

You will take the other side and overlap it a few inches and pin it down. I folded the outside piece then pinned it down.

Fifth Step

Now you can take out the pillow and cut off any excess fabric. Try and cut this in a straight line 🙂

Sixth Step

Now you can sew the edges. I sewed mine along the pin line so it was close and tight to the pillow as possible then you don’t have slack to try and fill.

Seventh Step

Turn the cover into itself so it’s the right way. 

Now you can add in the pillow 

The Final Envelope Pillow Cover Look!

I love how this pillow turned out! It’s soft and it fits perfect on my chairs next to our tree. You can also use it during the month of January if you have winter decor to match. So a two in one idea 🙂 One for Christmas and one for Winter 🙂
