    Awesome! I was never good with needles and this is a very clever idea! Now I think I know what I can give as presents to my friends this Christmas without any cost but full of effort and creativity!

    I will definitely make one from my favorite soccer team #Manchester united. Can this method be used for football jersey which are not cotton or will they get spoiled for nothing? Am troubled.

      I think you can use this on ANY material. I chose cotton because if it is not cotton it is not against my skin. As long as you can cut it you can use it:) Let me know how it turns out

    Am going to try this with one of my t-shirt and see what the result will be like. The steps are easy to follow I can admit that.

      LOL. Use the other teeshirts to stuff the pillows as a tip too:) rather than buying a blank pillow insert.:)

    Nice hack! This is a good idea how to remake old clothes of my dad! Haha. I bet he would love to see his old favorite clothe turned into a pillowcase. Thank you for this no-sew easy DIY trick (because I don't actually know how to sew). Haha. This is cool!

    Now I know what to do with my old shirt. Instead of tossing them out I can donate them to charity or do something like this. Good stuff thanks.

    This is a very helpful tip to me. I have a lot of shirts that just sit in the closet. You gave me an amazing idea what to do with them. I also appreciate that I don't need to sew it, cuz I don't know how to sew.

    "you are recycling your t-shirt rather than tossing it out, so a crafty reuse is perfect." What I think that, it's good idea for reusing old clothing. It can help for environment.

    Been wanting to add more pillows to my bed but haven't had the time to buy. Good thing I came across this post. We got lots of old shirts and maybe if I'm imaginative enough I can make the other shirts into a pillow and the chosen shirt I want can be the cover!

    Such a fun DIY! I wondered how you could create a pillow without sewing only to find out that you have to tie the sides at the end. Genius!

    I love this easy no sew craft! I think this would be better that to keep on buying throw pillow covers. We do have some of our favorite shirts that no longer fit, so I will gather them and make some pillows! Thanks for sharing this easy DIY craft idea.

    That is a very cool project. I know that I have done stuff like that with my daughter's shirts before, creating the ruffles or ends there. But I didn't think about doing that with a pillow. I will have to show this to my daughter.

    When I was just learning how to sew, my grandma and I made things like this all of the time. I remember she piled all of the pillows onto her sofa and many of them were still there years later. Thanks for the fun memories .. made me smile. x
