Don’t throw away that T-Shirt – Country Decoration for your home

Don’t throw away that old T-Shirt. As you know from other blogs there are TONS of ideas you can do to old shirts.

This is one that I created to make a cute little country decoration.


I simply cut 2 hearts out of a t-shirt (you could do this with fabric as well) –FRONT

Back side of the heart.

I put them wrong sides together, and simply threaded some embroidery thread and did a quick stitch around the outside of the heart. Just before I closed it off, added a bit of poly-fil that you use for pillows to plump it up a bit.

Once I sewed around the outside edge- I took a piece of crafting wire. Poked it thru the fabric and twisted it up for some character.

Added on a raffia bow and project done.

It is extremely fast to make. You can even stuff potpourri in the heart if you wish to freshen up a room. :) These are easy enough to make with your kids that are learning to sew by hand.

So before you throw out an old t-shirt .. think of the millions of different things you can do with them :)  Skies the limit!!
