Wasting No Sweater Scraps…Neck Roll Pillow

Thanks for Sharing!

Yesterday I showed you my Pottery Barn Knockoff Sweater

I didn’t want to waste the remains though.

I took one of the sweater sleeves

and rolled up a crib mattress pad that I had removed from my linen closet when organizing recently… my baby is 4 and has been in a bed for 2 years… goodness!  I shoved the rolled up mattress pad in the sleeve.  I cinched up one end and wrapped it with twine.

Then I just did the same with the other side, cutting the sweater so the ends matched in length.

What a cute set they are!

I’ve got a few more project to show you from my sweater… stay tuned.



  1. I loved these pillows and found a similar sweater and made my own! I've shared it on my blog and linked back to you as my inspiration. I'm new to blogging, so I hope I've followed correct "etiquette". Please feel free to visit and let me know what you think…even if I need a lesson in blog etiquette! 🙂

  2. Just wanted to say thanks for linking to my Free Friday and my husband keeps asking me why I am cutting up my cableknit sweaters? LOL! Thanks for the inspiration and I especially love the sweater ball!

  3. I love this and I can't wait to try it. Since I don't currently have any sweaters that I want to part ways with I think I will try the goodwill.

  4. This is genius! I have always loved those pillows. I can't really sew but I think I might be able to pull off the bolster with ribbon. Thanks for sharing, I can't wait to make one!

  5. Love this!!! I have a ton of cableknit sweaters, great idea would love for you to link this to my FREE FRIDAY party @ A Very Blessed Nest , free things don't come along everyday, I'm inspired!

  6. Awesome ideas. Found you on Today's Creative Blog. I've actually been wanting some legwarmers made from sweater sleeves but was at a loss as to what to do with the torso part. You've given me a great idea!

  7. I LOVE this. Too bad I don't own any sweaters like that. Maybe I'll make a trip to Goodwill!

    We are moving our living room set downstairs when our new basement is finished and getting a new set upstairs. I am going to go throw pillow crazy and am racking up all sorts of ideas. Adding this one to my list! 🙂

  8. Just found your blog via Today's Creative link up and got lost in your posts – they're great! I am adding you to my reader now!!!

  9. GEEZ, I wish I had your brain. How do you DO it? I am now so curious about all the junk I have in my house and the fact that there are probably 1,003 ways I could repurpose it all.
