Christmas pillow that I made yesterday out of an old Nordic sweater that needed a new life.
Before I commence to showing you my up-cycling process ~ please pardon the quality of the photos. My digital camera died Sunday night, and I made these pillows yesterday before running out and purchasing my new little camera, so the photos were taken on my phone. Now I have to learn the new menus and button symbols on the new camera...so hopefully I'll be up and running with it by Market :)
To make a recycled sweater pillow, you'll need an old sweater to cut up, a half yard of cotton fabric for the pillow back, and a pillow form (mine is 16 inches), and Fusible Fleece or Interfacing.
16 1/2 inch square up ruler, I cut out around the fusible fleece square to give me my sweater pillow front. (The pillows can be any size that you want, or whatever works for your sweater ~ I chose 16 1/2" because I have a 16 inch pillow form).
another up-cycled sweater pillow.
Etsy store, or do a little archeology in your sweater drawers and make one for yourself...I'd love to see pictures of the ones you make!
Enjoy the day!
