This was a shirt that didn't fit me well any more. I liked all the detail pleats and lace on it, and had the idea to make it into a pillow. Because of the buttons, it was the quickest and easiest pillow case I've ever sewn!
- Find a shirt that you think would make a good pillow. Any shirt can make a pillow--but a button-up shirt sews really fast and easy.
- Center, measure, and cut a good-sized square through both sides of the shirt.
- Right sides together, sew three sides of the square. Stop here for a moment, reach inside and unbutton about three buttons. Finish sewing the fourth side.
- Reach through the open buttons and pull the pillow case right-side-out. Stuff in a pillow of the same size and button it up!
