Make a body pillow from an old bedsheet

Written by Janice Wee


Do you have an old bed sheet that has seen better days, which you are considering throwing away?

Don't throw it away?

Recycle it.

Change it into a body pillow.

Do you intend to throw that soft, comfortable bed sheet because it has little tears, stains or holes in it?

Keep it.

You can use that as stuffing for your body pillow.

Before you start, have both bed sheets bleached, washed and dry to ensure you have totally clean materials to start with.

Then takerepparttar best looking old bed sheet and fold it in half lengthwise, and half acrossrepparttar 143334 width, so you have a rectangle a quarter ofrepparttar 143335 size ofrepparttar 143336 original bedsheet. When you foldrepparttar 143337 bed sheet, hiderepparttar 143338 defects inrepparttar 143339 folds sorepparttar 143340 rectangle you get would show no stains or tears.

Iron this rectangle flat. Pay attention torepparttar 143341 sides. Then sew downrepparttar 143342 3 open edges. You should have a nice rectangle that stays put without any openings.
