Pharmacy Sweatshirt Upcycled

Like my Pillow? Well it came about from an unfortunate laundry accident!

Somehow bleach spilled on my pharmacy sweatshirt I have had forever as well as a couple of my running sweatshirts, needless to say I was upset and eventhough I couldn't wear this sweatshirt anymore (the stain was way worse on the back) I couldn't bear to get rid of it so I decided to make it into a throw pillow.

First I cut out the emblem and words on the front, which gave me a very small square of fabric so I also used the fabric I salvaged (minus the bleach stain) on the back to create the front of the pillow. I used some soft white Minky fabric to create a boarder on the front and the back. I used a zig zag stitch to sew the small square onto the large blue square and then that onto the front white fabric. I then sewed the front and back together (right sides facing) leaving an opening for turning and stuffing the pillow form in.

I had an ikea feather pillow form I wasn't using and stuffed that inside and then handstitched the opening closed.
