Recycle a shirt that is no longer used can be a great idea to create new clothes or accessories at virtually no cost, using their sewing skills, relying on a person particularly expert therein, or to decide to learn how to use a sewing machine. From an old shirt you can get a new skirt, an apron, a bag of baby bibs, a pillow and more. The cushion consists of a cloth surface, suitably padded and shaped so many clothes, lend themselves very well to be transformed into this cute piece of furniture. Let us see, how to make a pillow from a shirt in a comfortable cushion. By recycling this garment, you can do so a very cute personalized gift.
Be sure to have on hand:
- a flannel shirt or cotton or fleece sweater
- a decorative pillow
- matching thread to the fabric
- sewing machine
- fabric marker or tailor’s Chalk
Depending on the type of shirt and fabric that composes vintage pillowcases, you can also decide the shape to the shape of the pillow you are going to achieve. First, start the job buttoning his shirt. Now switch to adjust the machine to sew a straight stitch, length 3 mm, width put to zero and all purpose foot. At this point, sew the opening of shirt, staying very close to the buttons. If you already have a lockstitch sewing, just above this. If the presser foot stumbles in buttons, put the needle on the far right or left, if the machine allows it, so only the lateral leg end will pass close to the buttons, not on.
Now you have to switch to turn the sleeves, pushing inside armhole up to the shoulder seam, then PIN at the back of the shirt. Once done, place the cushion by passing it from the open bottom, pushing it well in the neck and shoulders. At this point, pinned the bottom of shirt to close it, placing the pins very near the pillow from one side seam to the other.
Once you have done this work, with a fabric marker or tailor’s Chalk, you must mark the stitching line on both the front and back of the shirt. Then parades the pins and the pillow. Now turn the shirt inside out, combining straight and aligning the lines drawn previously. Now pinned to the bottom of the shirt along the seam line, inserting the pins perpendicularly from one side seam to the other.
At this point, sewn to close the bottom of the shirt, pulling the pins as they can reach them. Now stops at points back the start and end of the seam and, depending on how long the edges of the bottom shirt, you will need to decide whether you should crop them, leaving a 1 cm seam allowance. At this point, turn the shirt on the obverse and slip the pillow from the neck opening. Finally roll out and smoothed the sleeves on the back.
- Remember to remove all the pins.
