DIY No-Sew Throw Pillow!

 My favorite Christmas pajamas got a huge rip in the rear end and I didn't feel like sewing anything. I love the cute little reindeer design on them and have a thing for throw pillows. But like I said I didn't feel like sewing anything. So i took an idea I saw on diary of an urban housewife for making these cute bags out of old shirts and applied it to this project!
 First I cut the legs off at the thickest spot from upper thigh to knee.
 Then began snipping away, begin with the seam and then make inch thick slits all the way across.
 When you have all your cuts made on both sides tie one end using double knots so it is nice and secure. Stuff your pillow with stuffing, I will admit I ended up decapitating a few old teddy bears to make this pillow but lets face it stuffies are quite disposable, we have about 40 in a huge net in the nursery.
 Tie the other end of your pillow nice and tight and take a minute to enjoy how simple and beautiful this little pillow is.
 It looks fantastic on my couch and since I have another pant leg to stuff I will have two matching Christmas pillows! I was quite pleased at how it turned out.
