This is a pretty easy yet functional refash!
I recently picked up a sweater at my local thrift store during the .50 cent sale.
I have been hanging onto a purple pillow for the last 5 years, waiting to recover it.
Before: just a sweater and a pillow.
I cut the sweater across just under the sleeves.
Then I ended up with this square of fabric. To cut down on sewing I kept the original sode seems of the sweater.
Pinned and sewed the top and the bottom but leaving a hole at the bottom for the stuffing.
See: hole for stuffing.
Stuff, stuff, stuff!
Then I hand stitched the hole.
My new pillow!
Our wonderful friend, Karl, modeling my new pillow for me! Thanks Karl :)
