It turns out old t-shirts, when no longer worn, are still of value, of sentimental value. So, this recent custom project of mine is an emotional one. I took a set of jerseys and team/school t-shirts that used to be worn and turned them into a fantastic - BIG - pillow for a now college student. Isn't it the perfect addition to his dorm room? It's a fun reminder of the good in the past and the fun to be had at school and in the future.
Let's be honest. By now, you know I am obsessed with pillows. I design pillows of all shapes and colors and textures and I very much enjoy custom orders. Today, let me tell you about the biggest pillow I have designed and sewn to date!
How did I create this pillow? Well, it was bit of a puzzle I tell you. I cut out the logos from the old t-shirts and lined them up to work well size- and color-wise. The pillow insert was 50" by 20" so I had tons of room to play with. I added stripes of blue fabric, the college colors, to the sides and to the back. The pillow cover can be taken off and washed easily. Et voila, proof is here! This pillow is BIG, bigger than me!
