I found a terrific men’s shirt at a charity shop and trumped home delightedly to recycle it for me. Unfortunately it turned out that the material didn’t breathe at all, so it did not work for my hot climate.
However, it makes a great cushion cover!
Using the button-down front as the cushion cover opening, and keeping the buttons prominent as a feature, it was a quick and easy upcycle that looks great on my sofa.
