The blue pillows are from XL and 2XL sized shirts. Then the Black one is from a Large shirt. The Eskimo Joes T-shirt, which by the way, was my son's but, he'd never wear it, as tie dye and pink didn't go with his personality. That's okay, since it was a size Adult M, it was a good
Well as it turns out. Using a scant 1/4 inch topstitched seam and a 1 1/2 inch topstitched flange, was a bit *tight* with a 14 by 14 inch pillow form, for the Adult Size M (Eskimo Joe's) shirt. Notice how *tight* the pillow form seams to be by the pillow flange? I like a little looseness to my pillow!
Next time, I'll topstitch either 1 1/4 inch, or 1 inch flange, if I'm using a Medium Adult T. I barely had enough fabric chest width wise from the Adult M. Of course, JoAnn's doesn't have a 12 by 12 inch pillow form. Smallest one is 14 by 14. It will be some creative sewing for lesser shirt sizes. I also had to add some fabric panel on the top (as I had to do with the Bulldog t-shirts, as the design was really close to the neckline.), to make the Eskimo Joe design to come out centered. These shirts were for scholarship winners from the local PTA. I did 15 shirts for High School, then ended up last minute doing 6 1/2 shirts for one of the elementary schools.
Now I'm doing a fundraiser at church. Send me a at least Adult M t-shirt, and I'll convert it into a Flanged Envelope Pillow. You provide the 14 by 14 inch pillow form. Cost is $10 (plus a shipping charge). Shirt should be washed, as I don't want to deal with stinky shirts! email me at email@example.com for more details. The money will go toward our church's children's playground equipment. Thought I'd use one of my "gifts" to help out the church! Thanks! gaileee
