pillow covers

This will be quite a short post because this is a pretty short project.  Basically if you have large enough t-shirts it's pretty easy to use the jersey like fabric and make pillows or pillow covers.  My inspiration was from the ducklings in a row tutorial on pillows made from men's button-down shirts.  Simple measurements and a quick run through the sewing machine is all it took, then I closed the pillows in with a slip stitch.  I wanted to do that properly so I followed directions from michelle patterns which were fabulous.  It buries the knot well which came naturally to me because it's a similar technique to what we do in surgery!
