Red, white and blue just screams summer to me and I love decorating for the 4th and I am always looking for a budget friendly project!
Old Shirt Turns Fun No-Sew Pillow!
Turn a men's dress shirt into cute holiday decor!
I found a men's dress shirt at the goodwill for $1.50 on clearance and had an idea. I picked up some small flags at Hobby Lobby. I decided to try to make a new no-sew pillow for the 4th on the cheap!
I sized up the shirt with a pillow insert to get and approximate size that I wanted.
Then I cut the shirt down to size.
I turned the shirt inside out and grabbed the Stitch Witchery.
I only had 2 open sides that needed to be closed up. I added the Stitch Witchery along the edges where I wanted a "seam".
Then I simply ironed the edges . I made several slow passes to make sure the two sides fused together.
I let the shirt cool completely before turning it right side out.
Next, I took my mini flag apart. I cut off the white edge.
I covered the back edges of the flag with some more Stitch Witchery.
I placed the flag where I wanted it on my pillow cover.
I ironed the flag on, making slow passes with the iron. I let it cool for several minutes.
I stuffed my insert into the cover. I used the buttons for a closure.
I think this is a cute detail on the back.
Now I have a cute pillow I can use for the 4th and all summer long!
