In our little yarn making mad scientist 'craftatory', we go through a lot of t-shirts.... and by "a lot" I mean an unbelievable, never-ending, teetering pile of shirts.

While we use ever bit we possibly can, there are some perfectly good bits we just can't use. It kinda jacks with our mojo, to think we might have to toss our little RipTie bits in the landfill. We fabric ninjas don't roll that way :)

So, we saved all of our clean, fun, t-shirt shredfest scraps, hoping inspiration would strike and we'd come up with something nifty that made use of all the unloved bits... Eureka! The RipTie Scrap Tillow is born!!

Each Tillow is made from a repurposed t-shirt that we felt was just too cool to shred for our yarn.
Comfortably stuffed with all the clean scraps and bits we are unable to use, we've sewn it up tight (note, not a cover with an insert, but an actual pillow)...

This Tillow is ready to be the coolest thing on your couch (besides yourself, of course)... :D

100% green. 100% recycled. 10,000% awesome.

And, 100% one-of-a-kind...
...unless we are lucky enough to uncover a treasure trove of identical shirts we can't bear to shred, then we'll offer multiples... we try to size them the same, but as they are handmade one at a time, please note that sizing is approximate, due to the inherent variations of crafting each project one at a time by hand :)


Here's the scoop of this Tillow:

"Can I Get A Lift?"
Approximate Dimensions: 12"w x 12"h

Description: made from a marigold yellow t-shirt, featuring a cartoon screenprint of a NYC taxi cab on one side, with a cab fare chart on the reverse.

Fabric Condition: Recycled - made from a recycled t-shirt in very good condition.

Care: Machine wash gentle, air dry or fluff low/no heat (keeps the screenprint nice and vibrant).


Please note: all of our projects and yarn blends are made in a smoke-free, pet-friendly home :)

Please note: Tillows are made from clean, repurposed/recycled/upcycled/vintage t-shirts. As such, there may be imperfections in the fabrics used... all part of the green plan. While we do our absolute best to accurately describe the condition of every project we sell, please understand that with recycled and/or vintage fabrics come some inherent signs of wear, which we feel add to the green charm.

Please note: we <3 one-of-a-kind stuff... so, if you check the # available and it's more than one, it's because we were lucky enough to stumble upon a bunch of identical shirts to get crafty with (score!!)

And please... take the time to read shop policies and ask ANY questions prior to purchase... thanks!! :)

Your Tillow will come securely packaged to you... free gift wrap available on request!
