T-shirts are the perfect size for throw pillows. Choose one with embellishments to instantly stitch a decorative pillow with very little effort!

Make a cozy quilt for a baby from warm and cuddly printed cotton flannel. Finish it in a flash by tying with coordinating perle cotton or yarn.

Turn a T-shirt into a cute summer skirt. Slice two rectangles from a T-shirt, add seams, a casing and elastic; you’ve got it made!

This baby banner is not only cute, but also multi-purpose! With coordinating fabric on both sides, you can have a boy banner or a girl banner whenever the occasion arises. Use it as a decoration for a baby shower or to adorn a little one's nursery!
