365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 3 – Threadless Punk Rock Cock Throw Pillow

Don’t get me wrong, I love each of my Threadless tees. However, my Punk Rock Cock T-Shirt suffered from a stretched out collar. As such, it wasn’t so great for wearing anymore. So it sat, unsued, in my drawer for a long time. That was until I came up with the idea to turn Aled Lewis’ classic tee into a one-of-a-kind Threadless throw pillow.

Although I came up with the idea, I have to say thank you to my mom for having the know how to actually make it into a tangible product. Thanks mom!

Having said that, the pillow is super comfy and very stylish – I Love It! I should also note that screen printed tag from the T-Shirt is sewn on to the back of the pillow (I thought that would be cool). We were originally going to use the entire T-Shirt for the pillow cover (minus the green), but the punk rock cock graphic was situated in such a way that it would have been impossible to cut a perfect square without the cock being off-center. So instead, we decided to cut a tight square around the cock and then use green fabric for the rest of the pillow. Doing this added a nice border around the front graphic.
