Does your teen have a stash of favorite t-shirts they no longer wear but can't bear to part with because they have some sentimental value or they just love them too much?

have a trunk full of t-shirts collected over the years from special trips, gifts from family, sports teams and special events.
For this project, my teen daughter picked out four t-shirts that she has outgrown, choosing bright colors and fun designs that fit into the theme of her room.
Not only are these t-shirt pillows a great sewing project for teenagers to do, they also make wonderful and unique gifts.
Do you have a teen heading off to university this fall? Make them a special t-shirt pillow from one of their favorite childhood memories to remind them of home.

Go through your hoard of t-shirts and pick out one or a few that hold special memories or are cool in design. If you want, put them in the dryer for 10 minutes to get the wrinkles out. The ones we used were very wrinkly from sitting squashed in the bottom of a give-away bag for a couple of months.
