Well not new pillows, just new pillow covers…
This is the after….
And this is the before picture! Yep, I saw this tuxedo shirt at Goodwill and thought that it would make a great pillow. The shirt was $3 and I had a pillow form without a cover waiting at home.
I just marked and then cut out a rectangle about 2 inches wider than the pillow all around and used the placket for the closure, so no zippers or buttonholes! Easy easy easy! This pillow now resides on my bed, with my blue and white bedding.
The second pillow is made from a sleeveless sweater I found for $2…
This is the before….
And the after! I needed something to go with the couch, but something pulling some other colors into the couch. And I wanted the pillow to complement my other pillows and my flower wall art. I think it was the perfect mix of colors.
I am linking to these great parties!!
I think I have one of the tux shirts in my closet from Goodwill! thanks for the hint!

That tuxedo shirt pillow is fabulous. Even better, no need for a zipper! I would love it if you would share this on my linky party Tout It Tuesday. http://www.claimingourspace.com/2012/06/tout-it-tuesday-9.html
What a great idea!! I would have never thought of that! I will be featuring you tomorrow morning at our party. Stop by and grab a button if you would like. Thanks for partying with us at Link It Up Thursday.
What a cute idea, the pillow looks beautiful! I made a cardigan pillow not too long ago, that was done in a similar way. I love re-purposing old things and giving them new life like this! Love what you did!
