Sweater Pillow {Tutorial}

Do you have a pile of sweaters that you love, but just don't wear anymore? Or maybe they have a small hole in an arm, or are getting too fuzzy...

Make them into pillow covers!

This tutorial is super fast, and let's you get a little more mileage out of those soft and beloved sweaters.

Pillow or Pillow form
Sewing Things

Lay your pillow on your sweater to make sure it will fit. You don't want the sweater to be too stretched over the top or it will get distorted.

Cut off the neck and sleeves. Then sew across the top, and down the sides to close the armholes. (I trimmed mine to a rectangle after taking this photo)

Insert your pillow and slip stitch the bottom closed, or use your sewing machine. If you want it to be more washable, you could even install a zipper or buttons, but I wasn't in the mood for that!

Soft, fuzzy, and beautiful.
