When your child has outgrown that favorite t-shirt that he just can’t bear to part with, why not recycle it into a pillow? He will love the fact that he doesn't have to get rid of his favorite shirt but will get to cuddle with it instead! This t-shirt pillow is easy to do, and it makes a great gift too! It is also a fantastic opportunity for your child to work on color matching the thread to the shirt color and then threading the needle of the sewing machine for fine motor finger work.
What You Need:
- T-shirt of your choice (a new one with a logo you like or an outgrown, well-loved shirt)
- Sewing machine (or a needle and ambitious hands)
- Pillow stuffing (you can get this at a craft store, fabric store, or even Wal Mart)
- Pins (optional, but recommended)
