Do it yourself sweater pillows! Print E-mail

This project is a great way to cozy up your couch in the winter time! Not only does it add warmth and texture to the room, they’re just inviting.

Materials Needed:

• Sweater (in closet or thifted)

• Pillow Form

• Measuring Tape

• Scissors

• Needle and Thread

• Sewing Machine

• Straight Pins

• Embellishments (Buttons)

Step 1: Wash and dry your sweater. The above were two from a thrift store in the same color, but different thicknesses and textures. Turn the sweater inside out.

Step 2: Place pillow form onto sweater lining up one edge of the form with a side of the sweater if possible. This makes one less seam to sew!

Step 3: Measure around the pillow leaving a margin to sew. Mark and cut the sweater. Sew the two pieces together leaving a space to slip the pillow form in. Cut away the excess sweater and turn right side out.

Step 4: Slip the pillow form in and hand stitch the opening closed.

Step 5: Embellish if desired. I added a button to the center and back pulling the center together.
