Ok, I finally convinced my dear hubby to go through his closet and take out any old clothing to which I would donate along with some of my old clothes that we no longer wear/fit.
As I was bagging up some of the things I spotted this shirt and thought what a shame, the print is so cool, (I LOVE Hawaiian shirts) when an idea came to me...why not a pillow cover?? TaDa! and idea is born and I sped off to my craft/sewing room. I laid out the shirt, pinned & chalked it(for sewing lines) then Mr shirt met Ms sewing machine and for the next few minutes all you could hear was the happy hum of my sewing machine.
After I stitched it up, I flipped it right side out & Voila! here is the end result. I was so excited that I didn't iron it before taking the photo. Oh Well, you get the idea. I now have a cool kitschy pillow cover that easily unbuttons to remove/insert the pillow and since it is my hubbies old cast off shirt, I figure the pocket works well to hold his cell phone or T.V. remote control...
Ok, now I have to get back to bagging up the rest of his clothes before he changes his mind & wants them back...hmmm, wonder if any other cool ideas pop up while bagging up!.
