The Secret of the Tshirt Pillow.
Are you thinking of purchasing new pillows or cases? You don’t need to. You can make new pillow covers to cover the old ones or create brand new pillows yourself. Make any size pillowcases for any occasion. Use the old pillowcases for a pattern and take your old tshirts out of the closet.

If your old pillowcases are ugly and worn, this is a great way to spruce things up and change the overall look of your room or space.Examine the tshirt’s design to pick the right logo or colors. A bed pillow was made to give support and comfort to the human body and head, so you don’t have to change the pillow structure itself, just the cover.

With plenty of soft, attractive pillows around, be prepared for children to pounced upon them. One of the chief reasons people love t-shirts is due to their comfortable, stretchy material. That is why they are perfect for pillow coverings and quilts. What a fantastic gift idea too! It is useful and keeps memories alive.
