Tools and Materials

To make a T-shirt pillow, you will need: a large (or XL, XXL) T-shirt; scissors; pins; pillow stuffing; a sewing machine is preferred, but a needle and thread will work too. Pillow forms list the dimensions on the package. For example, we purchased a 16” x 16” form to match our T-shirt size. Measure your T-shirt to make sure it will work for the length and width of your pillow stuffing.
