I saw the cutest sweater pillow the other day. I don't remember where I saw it, but I loved it and wanted to create one for myself.
I love the way it looks in my living room on my brown leather couch!
I found this sweater at the thrift store for less than $5. I bought an extra large so I would be sure to have enough sweater to work with.
I measured my feather pillow insert and figured out how big to sew the sweater.
I marked it with some straight pins. (not pictured)
Then I turned it inside out and sewed around 3 sides, leaving the bottom of the sweater open.
Then I cut off the neck and arms (saving them for a later project).
I turned it right side out and stuffed the feather pillow inside.
To close the bottom of the pillow, I folded it similar to wrapping a gift:
sides in first, then the top, then the bottom.
Then I loosely whip stitched it closed.
When I am done with this cover, I can easily clip the thread,
undo the stitches and pull the cover off of the pillow.
Super simple and cozy for the season!!
