*Project by Erin @ Erin’s Creative Energy for the Repurposed challenge of season 12*
This week I re-purposed my husband’s dress shirts that he can no longer wear into manly pillow covers.
I have been trying to figure out a great way to reuse my husband’s dress shirts. One had ring around the collar and the other a small grease stain that wouldn’t come out. The shirts are made of great material and I just couldn’t throw them away or donate them to charity. So, this was the best idea I came up with.
This was probably the easiest sewing project I have done in a long time. I cut out a rectangle, the size to fit a travel pillow, turned them right side in, sewed it and trimmed the edges with pinking shears. There was no need to sew a zipper or other enclosure because the button down front of the shirt was already there.
Now I have some very manly pillows, to sit on very manly chairs in a very manly room of my home.
