Re: July Use Your Stash Game: Chat and Picture thread

Love the upcycled sweatshirt pillow! I'd like to try that with some of DH's old t-shirts and my college hoodie.

thanks! the sweatshirt was heavy and thick, it definitely needed the serger... with tee shirts for pillow cases, I find that if it's a thin tee shirt you will want to do two layers, or it will appear see-through or if it's a down pillow the feathers will feel funny when they start to stick out of the pillow.... I wouldn't mix the two weights unless I had my sister's serger to play with and 2 or 3 layers of tee shirt, or I think it would look really wonky....

I have my couch pillows covered in old tee shirts (just plain grey from the backs of shirts that I used the fronts for something else!) and my kids loooove them! so soft!!

I'm in a complete funk. I'm completely unmotivated to do anything but have a zillion things I should work on.

I;m sorry :-( That's how I've felt about work the past few weeks, now my final day is in 48 hours and I have all this little tedious stuff left to do... .... I knew I would regret the procrastination but I couldn't help it
