So I had some leftover sweater material from the pumpkins I made.
The sweater did not felt like I thought it would when I washed it because it wasn’t all wool.
But it still was really soft so I thought why not a pillow.
I had a bed pillow I wasn’t using so I just cut it down and used it as the insert.
Then I cut the body of the sweater from armhole to armhole.
I had already cut the sleeves off since that is what the pumpkins are made out of.
Then just a straight stitch across the top with my machine and stuff the insert inside.
I became addicted to making these cute little flowers.
There's a great tutorial that Beth from A to Z posted. She even made a video.
I had a gray sweater as well (which felted better) so I decided to combine the two colors.
I cut out some leaves and then outlined them with my sewing machine.
It wasn’t showing up enough so I hand stitched them on top with some embroidery floss.
I whip stitched the bottom by hand as well. It was very fast.
And I managed to hot glue them on without any injuries!
Not too bad. I was really happy with it.
It’s a great size for my bed.
Plus I love the texture it adds.
Now I just have one sleeve left to use.
