We all have them: those "special" T-shirts from events, vacations or sports teams. Kids have more of them than most! You don't wear them anymore, but you also can't seem to part with them. Let's make them into some cute keepsake pillows! Carefully cut out the motifaccent pillow case baby canvas home and living, stitch and stuff! It really is as easy as that. We created a pattern for cool knotted corners that can be done in the same or a contrasting color (a way to get rid of yet another shirt). One or more of these pillows would be a great gift for someone heading off to college: a little bit of home on which to lay your head.

You can feature a large or small motif on one or both sides of the pillow. If the design is quite small, you could also cut around the graphic and appliqué it (by machine or by hand) to a plain square cut from the same or a coordinating tee. Raw edges are fine for this type of appliqué as the knit fabric will not ravel.?

If you are new to working with knits, take a look at our Sewing with Knits tutorial. Working with T-shirt knit is pretty forgiving; we really didn't have to alter our machine settings at all.

These pillows are super fast and easy to make and would be a great project for kids. Let them pick the T-shirts to cut up and do the simple stitching. The bonus: you just might free up space in a few dresser drawers!

Southern Living handpicked an all-star team to design, build, and decorate the ultimate Southern farmhouse on the grounds of Fontanel, just outside Nashville, Tennessee. The former home of country legend Barbara Mandrell was the perfect fit for the grounds, which features a main house, two guest houses and bunkies that overlook a main courtyard. Ballard Designs provided décor for the large outdoor spaces, a prominent feature of the house. We got together with Idea House designer, Phoebe Howard, to chat about the décor.
