DIY Pillow From Old Pants!

I made this out of a pair of slacks. Crazy, I know! Tossing out good things just doesn’t make sense to me. I don’t keep stuff around long. I have a plan for all the “stuff” so I keep my house from looking like I’m collecting stuff for the next zombie apocalypse. I knew the stack of slacks would come in handy, I just had to let the ideas flow and make a plan and put it into action! This is what I came up with…✿

I have about ten of these!

I cut off the legs...

You can sew leg pieces together to get a really large piece. (Stay tuned to see what I made with leg pieces I sewed together!) You can play around with the angles of the original stitching too. (As in, no need to have everything in a straight line. You can have fun with angling the stitching to go at a diagonal for interest!

This leg was just the right size for the pillow I am using! Woohoo! 🙂

Also it could be neat to sew the fabric at all angles kind of like a patchwork quilt!

For this pillow I added ruffles using scraps from a sheet I that was a curtain in it's past life! :)

Ta-da! A pillow out of a pair of pants! This pillow took one pair. I did mention I had a stack of 10...Yay the possibilities!

To ruffle or not to ruffle was the question...Couldn't decide. I did both!

There you have it…Pillows repurposed from slacks! I hope you can find ways to reuse, recycle, rethink the things you have laying around your home. Until next time…Have a glorious day! ✿Koko✿ Please like, follow, and share! I do appreciate your support ❤

    • Teehee! Yeah the things my brain comes up with! The coverings are super sturdy! Really lives up to the rough housing and pillow fights here! Thank you for taking the time to comment. Means a lot! ❤ Have an awesome day!

      • Well, it looks wonderful 🙂 I really want to learn how to sew. I attempt to hand sew random little projects but I’m not very good lol. Hope you have a wonderful day too !

      • Sew anyway! I’m not very good. I sew pretty good straight lines! And if you can do that, you can sew. Start with pillows and even a simple quilt. All straight lines. I’d love to sew pants or a jacket! Maybe someday I will! ✿
