Knit Sweater Pillow Tutorial

Day 10
A soft place to lay my head after a long day


Here's a great and easy tutorial to make a knit sweater pillow by My Mama Made It found HERE.

It's a great way to take a sweater of someone you love and memorialize them or an old sweater of your childs that you just can't give away.

Get whichever sweater you want.

Cut off the sleeves and any excess you may need to to create straight lines all the way around.

Turn the sweater inside out and pin it ALL the way around. We are going to sew all four sides shut because we will just stuff it from the front buttons. After pinning, Sew all four sides.

Turn the pillow right side out and open the buttons.

Get some stuffing and stuff the pillow as full as you like it.

Now, button the pillow back up.
Here's what it looks like!!

Didn't it turn out beautiful!! And it took me 15 minutes!

Here's the first one I did that's on my bed.
