Graduation is coming up soon. What do you plan to do with your gown
when you are done wearing it? Most people just tuck the gown in the back (I mean way back) of their closet and forget about it. Guilty as charged. I see that red gown once in a while when I am looking for something, but pretty much just leave it where it is, lonely and neglected.
Associated Content has a tutorial with step by step instructions telling us how to take old graduation gowns and make pillow covers from them
. All you need is your old gown, matching thread, a sewing machine, and a pillow to make the cover for. Just follow the instructions, and in no time at all, you will have a newly covered pillow.
I really have a hankering now to find my satin graduation gown and recycle
it for a few smooth pretty throw pillows
. I think it would be really neat if non-matching thread was used though, or maybe some fabric trim in a contrasting color to liven up the pillow even more. Awesome, huh?
