Shirt Pillow

This is what I did last night while watching TV. It is made from a shirt my husband bought on our trip to see our daughter while her husband was on loan to the US air force in Alaska. That was about 15 years ago. The collar was frayed but the fabric still had some life in it.  I never have any luck with a sewing machine so do everything by hand.
