I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that I still had this sweater in my closet. I’m not sure how it’s survived a few moves without being sold or given away.
Did you own one of these? My long torso never liked this sweater!
First I chopped off the arms… then chopped the lower snap section.
Then I turned the sweater inside out and got to stitching.
Remember I am no master sewer. Replacing missing buttons and patching small holes has been the extent of my sewing expertise… till my resent plunge into blogging. So if I can do this… you can too!
I just hand stitched to make this pillow cover. You have most of the 2 sides done already with your existing sweater seams. So, I started at the top and sewed the arm area, across the top and down the other arm area.
Then I right-side outed (is this a real term?) the sweater and stuffed in my pillow form. Sewing off the bottom side was the final step.
I love my cozy sweater pillow! Pretty darn close to Pottery Barn. Here’s theirs…at $39.00. I think I’ll keep my free one.
Tomorrow I’ll show you what I did with the sweater scraps!
Don’t forget… Power of Paint Party will start tomorrow (Tues) night at 7pm (PST).
