I had an old t-shirt that I saw some potential for recycling ;-). I actually bought this shirt at the Goodwill for myself, but after I tried it on AFTER BUYING IT, it was too big (and it was the Daisy Fuentes brand!) ha ha ha!
I also had a very old pillow that had been waiting in the rocking chair more than 18 months to have a slipcover.
I decided the two of them were made for each other and that is how this project begun!
This is what they looked like:
First, I inserted the shirt in to the pillow. I kind of pictured what I wanted it to look like. I wanted the buttons to show. Since it was for my little girl's room I also wanted some "girly touch" on it.
I then cut it. It helped that it had stripes! It is OK if it does not look perfect.
I then sewed one end. Now it looks like a "bag." This was the bottom opening of the shirt.
There she is!
I then hot glued lace all around it. You will see this lace matches other things in the room ;-)
I made rosettes out of left over fabric and hot glued those.
And there is a little girl who is enjoying it very much!
