Who wouldn't love this practical way of keeping a nice memory? I have made these before and they are nice and comfy and if you do use the poly fiberfill, you can easily toss the, in the wash so,your momento is always cuddly fresh! These make such a wonderful gift for the high school,or college grad to keep,a,special memory when the shirt itself no ,mover really serves. Thanks for sharing!

What an awesome idea! A whole new life for a favorite T-shirt and especially when it is a much loved T-shirt without which life does not seem worth living, lol! Quick, easy and such a simple way to rejuvenate an old friend into a whole new one. I have stashed so many T-shirts with the idea of making fabric strips from them and now this project has me seeing some of them in a whole new light!

I have an entire drawer of old band shirts that have been waiting for a project like this! This really is a project that even a beginner sewer can handle. The detail that is added around the edges with the pinking sheers is just the perfect touch. Make sure that you leave enough room when you're sewing to be able to fit your hand in to adjust the pillow stuffing! What a super cute way to display, and use, your memorabilia.

How have I never thought to turn an old shirt into a pillow? I've made quilts out of them, but this is brilliant! Pinning this for sure!

I have so many old T-shirts lying around my house that I never wear, but won't throw away because of the memories. What a great way to still cherish those memories without wasting the shirt!
