So soft and sweaters

I don't know about you but this girl cannot pass up anything fluffy and soft.  When I was at Hancock Fabrics, I stumbled upon a super soft winter white faux fur.  $20 later, I walked out with 2 yards of fabric and an itch to get to work.

After pulling out my sofa throw pillows, I decided that they were too lumpy (probably from all of the pillow wars:).  Back out armed with coupons, I come back with two new plush pillow inserts from Joann's.  I am all about doing things nice and easy.  So, I whip up two envelope pillow covers.  I notice I have a lot of fabric left.  You know the saying, waste not, want not.  Now, I am on the hunt for random pillows floating around my house to fluffify (yeah, I know that is not a word).

2 yards of fabric, $20, and 5 pillows later, I have 5 pillows to cuddle up with on these cold winter days.

I have the softness.  Now, I need a pop of color.  Something that says Christmas and winter.  To Salvation Army I went, to find sweaters for more pillows!  I found a red and green sweater that are perfect for the splash of holiday I need to go with my oh so soft pillows.

Since I closed the green pillow with hook and loop, it stretch the sweater pillowcase out on that closure side.  My solution was to weave red ribbon through that end of the pillow to look like a present.  I love, love, love how they turned out!

  1. Your pillows turned out great! And I love your sofa too by the way :)

  2. I love your sweater pillows too. I made one last year. But, your ribbon idea is great.

  3. Your pillows are adorable. This is another of the neat things I've seen made with sweaters so I'm going to have to do some searching for ones that I can cut up.

  4. Your pillows came out so very pretty!!! Thank you so much for sharing it with us at our Christmas Extravaganza Party!! Pinning :) xoxo


I would really enjoy knowing what you think. I love getting your comments!
