I knew I was holding on to this old sweater for a reason... I made it into this!
I used the sleeves last winter for this wreath
See the resemblence?
I was starting to think I was nuts for holding onto that cut up sweater... turns out my craft-hoarding paid off!
I was originally inspired by these
They don't have these pillows anymore (and I wouldn't pay that much for them anyway) so I dug out the old sweater remnant!
This is what it looked like when I pulled it out of my scrap bin.
I cut off all the area above that is shaded gray.
Then I sewed it (inside out) into a square, leaving about 6 inches to stuff the pillow form in. I stuffed it and sewed up the rest of the seam.
And now for the bow...
I made a long chain by casting 4 sts onto a size 11 knitting needle and knitting a stockinette stitch until it was long enough to wrap around the pillow and tie a bow.
The berries were crocheted from a pattern I found at Petals to Picots. I made 5 of them and stitched them onto the pillow. Easy peasy!
Thanks for stopping by!
