In answer to the "Blue" and "Recycled" challenges here is my offering.
It is made from a shirt that DS has grown out of. The design was too big to cut it down to cover a cushion but it was just big enough to squash a pillow into!!
I put the sleeves inside and sewed (sp?) the seams shut. The collar is still on (though a bit dark in the picture to see) so the neck opening was sewn shut too.
