If you have some old sweaters in your closet that you want to get rid of, why not just turn them into pillows for your couch?

Materials:

  • old sweater
  • pillow form
  • measuring tape
  • scissors
  • needle & thread
  • sewing machine
  • straight pins
  • embellishments (like buttons) – optional

Step 1:
Wash and dry your sweater. Turn the sweater inside out.

Step 2:
Place your pillow form onto your sweater lining up one edge of the form with a side of the sweater if possible. This makes 1 less seam for you 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 it right side out.

Step 4:
Slip the pillow form in and hand stitch the opening closed.
You can add a zipper to one side if you want to.

Step 5 (Optional):
Embellish the pillows with ribbons,buttons and/or rosettes if desired.
