 Not only did I repurpose an old shirt in making this pillow, I also am getting double the use out of a holiday pillow!

Because of the evergreen branches on it, this pillow is normally put away after Christmas and winter are over with – taking up valuable storage space in my Christmas bins.

I love to keep special pillows on the bench in my foyer to greet my guests.  Here’s how the bench looks through the winter.

 And here’s how it looks for Spring and Easter.

  1. What a cute pillow, Suzy! And I love your “twist!” That’s a great way to save on pillow storage! I’m having so much fun with our no-sew gang! Have a great week!…hugs…Debbie

  2. Suzy, your bunny pillow with the fluffy tail is so sweet! I never thought of looking for fabric from an old piece of clothing. I sure will now! What a brilliant idea! And I love the bunny’s little pom-pom tail!!! Don’t you love being part of this fun creative group?

  3. Well aren’t you a tricky one! Great idea and I love your cute little bunny. I also loved that shirt; I remember you wearing it many times. I can’t believe you cut it up! But I guess that bunny pillow was worth it.

    1. Trust me, it hurt me in a big way to cut up that shirt! Remember those cabbages? Yeah – got hot glue on the shirt and it wouldn’t come out. 🙁

  4. Your pillow is adorable, Suzy. I was just weeding out some shirts that no longer fit and I have one in particular that I hate to give up. I think I’ll pull it back out of the bag- thanks for saving my favorite shirt! 🙂

  5. That is the cutest and so clever to use both sides. Tim would love that since you know how he loves pillows! Ha!

  6. I enjoyed seeing how you made your bunny pillow and how you are getting the extra mileage out of one pillow. Thanks for the great tutorial!

    1. Glad you liked it, Lynn! My hubby likes it too – the fewer the pillows around the house the better, in his book. lol
