New York T-shirt Cushion Cover

My friends brought my daughter a T-shirt back from their trip to New York. Sadly it doesn't fit her anymore but she didn't want to throw it out. We decided to turn it into a cushion cover.

 I cut the front panel and the back off the T-shirt.

Assisted by Brian, I made up the cover using my  usual pattern. 

 I didn't want to put a zip in because I was worried about the material stretching. So, I made some loops and attached buttons to fasten the back of the cover.

The finished cushion cover - a good recycling project.
