My room is swamped with Iowa Hawkeye memorabilia and sometimes I don’t know what to do with all of it. But I also don’t want to get rid of it. One item, for instance, that I have created a neat way to use are the towels I have received over the years at Iowa football games. For a few years I had them tacked onto my wall. After deciding I had more important things to put up, I sewed them together into pillow form. It’s easy.
Step One: Turn the towels so both front sides are facing each other. Pin them together.
Step Two: Start by sewing 3 of the 4 sides (It is best to use a sewing machine but you can hand-sew them too).
Step Three: Turn the partially sewn pillow inside out and stuff it with your choice of insides (feathers, cotton, etc.).
Step Four: Sew the final side by hand. Now you have a soft, decorative pillow…and a use for those Hawkeye towels!
