Simple upcycling t-shirt project

The past few days have been filled with prepping for Crafternoons and the upcycling demo with Our Social Fabric. Here's a quick DIY for those old t-shirts!

I bought a bunch of shirts from the Lions Gate Thrift Shop for $1. My FAV is the purple one with the awesome quote... It's perfect for a pillow cover!



I also found a pillow form and a grey shirt from the thrift store. The grey top is for the back of my DIY pillow cover. Total cost in materials is under $5. Not bad!



I cut the t-shirt for a 14" pillow form.



Then pinned it to the back - I'm making an envelope cover with two pieces of the grey shirt for the back.



After a quick sewing job, the pillow cover is complete. I might do another stitching job along the original stitch. We'll see!



And that's it... Such a great thrift store find.



Love the colour, the quote and my DIY pillow cover!
