No-sew T-shirt Pillow

Written by Kristen Randall

Do you have a bunch of old t-shirts lying around that you’re not sure what to do with? Now you can easily turn them into a pillow! Here’s how:

Tools and Materials Needed:
A t-shirt (size XL works best); scissors; a rotary cutter; pins; a yardstick and stuffing.



  1. Lay the t-shirt graphic-side up and pin both sides together with four to six pins.
  2. Cut widely around the logo leaving as much fabric around the graphic as you can
  3. Fold the t-shirt into fours. Cut a 2” x 2” square out of the top right corner through all the layers of the fabric.
  4. Unfold the t-shirt and cut strips 3/4” wide and 2” long in both layers of fabric.
  5. Knot each pair of fringe all the way around. Make sure to leave about five tabs unknotted so you can stuff the pillow.
  6. Stuff the pillow with cotton batting or old fabric. Tie the remaining tabs to close up the pillow
  7. Whether it’s an old band shirt, greek letters or a vintage sports tee, this no-sew pillow can bring any memorabilia to life!
