Five Ways to Make Amazing Sweater Pillows
Sweater Pillows: Old wool sweaters are great for crafting as they can easily be felted and felted wool is perfect for transforming into lovely soft cozy pillows (cushions).
If you are a lazy sewer like me then felt is the perfect fabric for you. Unlike other fabric, felt doesn’t fray which is great as there is no need for seams and the fabric can easily be glued. It is also a dream to hand sew.
Felting sweaters is ridiculously simple and I do it all the time mostly by accident. When I mistakenly put my (often favourite) sweater in a hot wash and it shrinks to a toddler size. As everyone else in my household (except me thankfully), are over 6 foot tall these felted sweaters end up in my crafting pile.
If you want to deliberately felt an old wool sweater there are more details here.
My blogging friends have a monthly round-up where they share their five favourite somethings. This month I have compiled my five favourite sweater pillows to share. Click over to “the Purple Hydrangea” if you want see what everyone else has linked for their favourite five.
As a child, I lived on the top of a mountain (all be it a small one). However now I probably live the flattest area of the UK. I really miss the mountains. In homage to my love of the mountains, I made these cute mountain cushions.
Another holiday themed pillow idea are these Easter bunnies to add a bit of fun to your home decor.
