I haven't been around in awhile so I thought I would stop by and show my latest project. These days, a quick little craft is rare for me but I still love it when I get the motivation to do something creative!
I had been going through my closet and decided to fill a bag for a donation to the Good Will when I came across an old favorite shirt of mine that I wore in the days when I was "smaller". It was a great little shirt to wear with a pair of jeans. Now, I really have no need for this shirt but, I have never been willing to part with it in the years past. While trying to decide, I remember a pillow I saw somewhere on a craft page, but at this moment I can't remember where. I decided this would be a good way to put my old favorite to good use and have it stay around.
It was very easy to make. I simply laid it out flat with buttons buttoned. Cut out a square from the front and back up as far as was possible which was for me, just above the arm pit. I turned the 2 squares facing inside, and sewed around all 4 sides. Then I unbuttoned the front and turned it right side out. I stuffed a little pillow inside and buttoned it up. The pockets could be used to temporarily hold an item if necessary.
I also made the little pillow that I stuffed inside from a cheap bed pillow I had bought a few months back that just didn't work to sleep on. Hardly anything goes wasted in my home!!! I took some quick little shots, although I am not the best photographer. I just point and shoot!
