T-shirt Pillow Cover

Project 1:  T-shirt Pillow Cover.  You pick the size pillow you want (16″x16″ pillow form used here), your favorite t-shirt and some coordinating fabric.  In about 90 minutes, you’ll have a one-of-a-kind pillow that YOU created.  The envelope style pillow cover means no snaps, buttons or zippers to contend with.  Perfect for beginners. If you can wind a bobbin, thread your machine and sew a straight seam without sewing your fingers together, then you have the skills necessary to make this project.  Fabric requirements for a 16″ square pillow cover:  1/4 yard for trimming the t-shirt, 1/2 yard for the back and 1/2 yard lightweight fusible interfacing to stabilize the t-shirt.  All the fabrics for this project came from my stash.  Pillow form is from Joann’s.
