T-shirt pillows :)

Hi everyone!! :)

With Brookie's surgery in November, and then our dog Dandy had to have all his teeth removed four days after her surgery, money was a little tight this Christmas season for us.  So, I decided to make T-shirt pillows for friends and family this Christmas.  I made each T-shirt pillow to match the friend/family member's personality. :) I scoured stores for clearance shirts (cause ... ummmmm I am going to cut them up, so don't want to spend a lot on them! LOL!) and also bought some with Black Friday sales. In the end, I had a T-shirt for each person. :) 

Adam is a Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan, and the T-shirt I found for him was 2-sided, so he got 2 pillows out of the shirt. :) 

My goddaughter is a Shawn Mendes fan, and her step-sister is a Guns 'N Roses fan. :)

Her other Step-sister is a Harry Potter fan, and another friend of mine is also a H.P. fan :)

My BFF's boyfriend is a Nightmare Before Christmas fan, and one of his daughters (another goddaughter step-sister) loves the book "Fault In Our Stars." :) 

My BFF is a HUGE Mickey fan and my Brother LOVES Superman!!  I will explain more about his pillow in a moment. :)

I got this idea from Jennifer Davey on the Therm-O-Web blog and Brookie was a NERD for Halloween (see photo below!) and I wasn't going to use her dress shirt again, nor the tie she wore, I used it for this project.  I used the front and BACK of the shirt, so I didn't waste the shirt! :)  Now, Jennifer created her own Superman symbol, but I just used a Superman T-shirt. :)

It is supposed to represent Superman opening his shirt and tie when he had to go into Superman mode (in case it wasn't obvious! LOL!) :)

And here is Brookie in this shirt and tie before I got my scissors to it! :) 

My best friend Jason and his son are both Star Wars fans :)

For the Darth Vader one, I found a Star Wars comic fabric for the back :)

And yes, they were all a big hit!!!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
