Here’s a great and easy tutoiral to make a knit sweater pillow. I had seen a bunch of these at different stores but they were so expensive. But sewing on knit always daunted me. But I tried it and, I’m telling you, it’s easy! I think 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. So here’s what we’re going to do. 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.
I hope you all like this project! Let me know what you think!
