If you've met me, you know that I like to wear colorful t-shirts. I typically pick up a new shirt at each festival or convention I go to.

What happens to the t-shirts when they wear out? It used to be that I'd just use them as rags. I've learned something else I can do:

Pillows

I used Stitch Witchery to hold the fabric together, and filled the pillows with 100% polyester; a five-pound bag was enough for all eight pillows with enough left over for at least one more.

If I ever do this again, I'll use a sewing machine instead of Stitch Witchery. The "glue tape" isn't bad, but in the long run it didn't save me much time over needle and thread.

I'm not sure why I decided to do this. I was in the mood for an arts-and-crafts project, and this was the one that caught my eye. Besides, I was looking for a way to get rid of a bunch of t-shirts that I was never going to wear again, but were too crummy to donate.

It was a fun way to spend my spare time on Labor Day weekend.
