Ugly sweater to cozy pillow in 60 minutes or less. I love me a quick project, and a quick, cheap project is even better! I found this delightfully dated sweater at the thrift store for a whopping $3.99.
The style may have been screaming "Cosby Show", but the pattern was screaming "make me a pillow!" At least that's what I heard.
So I did.
I started with a 12 x 16 pillow form, and since I like my pillows overstuffed (no karate chopping in this house!) I cut my fabric slightly smaller.
With the "right" sides together, I sewed 3 and a half sides, leaving an opening on one end to flip and stuff my pillow.
I then sewed the opening together by hand (and since both of my hands were occupied, I wasn't able to get a picture... I tried... it wasn't pretty)
And a cozy sweater pillow was born!
And the cats rejoiced.
Just kidding. They were indifferent at best. I'm just happy I was happy to bribe a cooperative model with a treat.
And there you have it- an ugly sweater- turned-cozy pillow in under an hour.
