Use your kid’s old clothes to make a gushy Play Pillow

Published on December 2, 2015


Instead of getting rid of your kids favorite clothes, retain them. You can turn that favorite outgrown t-shirt into a very gushy play pillow!

Instructions:

  1. Cut it across so you can get the biggest piece of fabric.
  2. Next, cut your front pattern piece from this fabric.
  3. For the back pattern piece, to cover a pillow form, you need a lapped edge (envelop opening). Cut out two pieces, each about 2/3 the size of the full square. Cut this out on the shirt’s hem edge. Then overlap them to make an even square. (See picture for reference).
  4. Place the two (front and back pattern) fabric pieces together, forward-facing side of fabric inside and secure it with pins.
  5. You can sew all way around the edges, because the opening is in the back pattern piece. The preexisting hem of the T-shirt will serve as the opening.
  6. After stitching, turn the pillow right side out.
  7. Stuff the pillow with foam or with pieces of other old clothes. Or you may slip a pillow inside through the lapped opening.
  8. And Voila, your kid’s favorite T-shirt is with him until another becomes his favorite.

If you want a quick work, just cut through both layers of her t-shirt to make a front and a back pattern piece in one go. Stitch the edges leaving 3 – 4 inch gap for stuffing. Stuff the pillow, thread a needle and hand-stitch the opening closed. And your play pillow is ready !!
