Sweater Pillows!

I finally did it! When I saw this cute post about turning old sweaters into amazing pillows on IShare Crafts, I knew I had to try it.

I had a few old and gross-looking pillows lying around the house that desperately needed a make-over. I hopped on over to a thrift store and picked up 3 sweaters for $2 each, and got to work! Here is what I came up with:
This one goes in the guest room, and I ❤ it! The sweater came with those darling little flaps and buttons. I just had to sew up a couple of seams, and make some rosettes from the sleeves. LOVE! So much cuter than the old, plain brown one.
These ones look kind of pink in this picture, but they are more burgundy. These go in the livingroom. So fun! I think I’m hooked. It only took an hour or so to do all three (and half of that time was spent searching for my thread and learning how to blanket stitch (which, I DID learn and do awesomely, by the way – I love learning a new skill!).
So, find an old sweater, break out the sewing machine, and create a fun new accessory for your home!

  1. Hello! I just found your blog and I L-O-V-E it! I've linked one of your downloads on my blog because it perfectly matches what I've been thinking about lately. Just curious…have you thought about designing a Families Are Forever freebie? That would make me swoon. 🙂
