Sweater into pillow cover!!

I have had this cute sweater in my refashion bin for a while. It is so soft and comfortable, but has become a little too short. So, I decided to make it a sweater. I have seen several of these around in bloggy land, so I gave it a try.

First I placed the sweater on the floor, and shoved my pillow inside to make sure it would fit. Next I took out the pillow and turned the sweater inside out.

I then cut off the sleeves and hood and sewed the bottom and arm holes together.

Next, I turned it right side out through the neck, and inserted my pillow. I sewed up the neck, and that was it.

It took about ten minutes to give my ugly old pillow new life!!

I am linking to these great parties!!

Aww! That's adorable! What a great way to re-use an old sweater! Plus, I imagine if a child had outgrown an important/favorite hoodie or something with an emblem/symbol it would be a great pillow for their room!

I like Lindsay's idea to take a special sweater and turn it into a momento!

That's fantastic! I love that you left the buttons on. It's simple enough that even I could do it!

I think I can actually do this one. My daughter loves pillows and it would be so nice to use even a favorite t-shirt to cover up a pillow for her. She has so many that are from trips.
