Men's Shirt Turned Pillow

30 Minutes

I found this great plaid shirt at the thrift store. Perfect for my Christmas pillows! This is an easy project that doesn't take much time at all. And no sewing buttons or zippers because it already has buttons!
A berry sprig in the pocket makes it even more Christmas-y!
I measured how many inches from armhole to armhole and found a pillow insert that would fit. I cut out a square of material slightly larger than my insert to allow for the seam allowance. Then I laid the material inside out with the buttons still fastened and sewed all four sides.
Turn it right side out and stuff it using the button opening!
That's it! A new shirt pillow!
