What you need:
|1 x cushion (this one is from Ikea many moons ago)|
How to make this wonderful creation:
1. Iron the shirt. Yes it's boring, I know you don't normally iron but it's better to do it know than at the end, trust me.
2. Cut off the sleeves, following the seam line.
3. Insert your pillow to the armless shirt (looks a bit sad doesn't it). Here you will be able to see where you need to cut the shirt so the cushion has a snug fit (pink dotted line). My cushion fitted perfectly but you may need to take yours in slightly at the sides to ensure a snug fit (this obviously depends on the size of your shirt/cushion).
4. Turn your now square shirt inside out and sew up the two open seems. The beauty of this bad boy is that your cushion cover opening has already been made - the buttons down the front of the shirt - so you don't need to worry about this, fabulous news.
You could stop here and marvel at your new cushion cover, but i'm a big fan of the corsage, so keep going and i'll show you how to embellish your cushion
Yay, you came back. Phew, was a little worried there that I might have lost you forever.
You should have a little corsage that looks like the above, minus the pins. Now you just need to decide where you want to add it - I put mine over the old pocket, it seemed quite happy here - and then sew it in place with your needle and thread.
Et voila, your man shirt cushion cover is complete, woop woop!
