Day 100: What to Do with Old T-Shirts Day
I can't believe it's Day 100! This year is going by so fast. Today, I had to figure out what I could make using old t-shirts. I've had this pillow idea for a while and recycling old shirts to make a cover seemed like a cool idea. So I hunted down some instructions online... should be pretty simple right? Yeah, maybe, except I'm no seamstress and the sewing machine and I don't exactly get along. I used to know how to thread it, lock the stitches, and whatnot back in the days of Home Ec. and Sewing Club. That's right... sewing club. Now, I have to go at snail's pace and have my mother help me especially when I manage to get the whole thing knotted and she has to spend forever trying to figure out fix the thingamabob that came out its whatchmacallit. In the end, I managed to get the cover done and stuff the pillow in it. It's a little big, but it works. Finally, I had to print a template, trace, and paint on the design. I hope you enjoy!
