Upcycle old clothes into fun soft-sculpture pillows!

Subscribe to Sweet Paul


You will need:

pencil and paper to draw patterns


fabric scraps and old clothes to cut up

sewing machine or needle and thread


fabric glue

  1. Get creative! Draw patterns onto paper for the house, cloud, flowers and leaves.
  2. Cut pieces out of your old clothes and fabric scraps.
  3. Sew pieces together and stuff with batting. I used an 18"x18" pillow insert for the base of my house.
  4. Glue details onto your soft-sculpture with fabric glue.
  5. Turn your couch into a village!


Great way to save and remember that "favorite" shirt that you just can't seem to part with!
