Description

Repurposing my son's outgrown gamer t-shirts into something he can still enjoy.
I'm not looking for precision or elegance here; I know these cushions will be missiles whenever friends are over- hence the external finishing.
:scissors::scissors::scissors::scissors::scissors:
Square off the t-shirt front and back; the Minecraft placement print was set high on the shirt so I had to cut off some of the sides as well to make it square.  
Overlock three sides (or one side where the cushion keeps the side seams of the t-shirt). Turn to right-sides out. Insert cushion pad. Fumble and mumble and grumble whilst overlocking the fourth seam along the outside edge. Not easy with the bulk of the insert bumping up against the presser foot! But not impossible either.

sew_what My son had a huge smile when I gave them to him - he thought the t-shirts were long gone. :) Yes, I made the sackboy. Here's a link to the pattern:
