"Learn how to make a cushion from several men's pre-loved dress shirts. No messing around with zipper or button closures and tidier than an envelope enclosure. All the hard work is done. The button placket forms the back closure, making this pillow a quick and easy sewing project. Piecing together strips of fabric from several shirts, you'll probably have enough fabric for a few cushions. In Australia, we call them cushions - you may call them pillows."

This pillow made with cast off men's shirts is ingenious! I have used my husband's old shirts for quilt fabric before, so I need to step up my game here and make one of these pillows using the placket for the opening! Love that! It might be fun to incorporate a pocket on the front of the pillow too. You could tuck in a hankerchief for added interest!

Sweet pillow project! I once made a pieced postage stamp quilt and used some of my husband's old shirts for fabric. The cotton plaid and checked material worked really well for the quilt top. The striped pieced pillow is another way I could use his old shirts. In the time-honored way of our sister quilters of yesterday, this is a thrifty way to find fabric and keep memories of favorite articles of clothing. Awesome project! What have you made from recycled fabrics?
