Make a pillow, recycle useless clothes. Haga una almohada y recicle sus ropas viejas.

This is how I made this pillow.

Shredded  clothes as pillow filling. 
I learned this from my mom.
I destroyed so many clothes. I had great fun.
Although my boyfriend freaked out when he saw me...
Boyfriend: Do you have money to buy all those clothes again?
Belly Dancer: Silly, I'm going to make all my clothes. 
Do you think I need all these mass produced, factory made and ridiculously ugly clothes.
I don't!
From now on they are going to be filling for my pillows.
My clothes should be happy I'm going to give them any use at all!
