When your favorite Cashmere Sweater has a hole in it you make it into something new!
I was pretty sad when I found out my favorite sweater had a hole in it.
My first instinct was to throw it in the garbage.
I decided to make it into a super soft pillow instead.
To make the Pillow I used:
5. To Personalize the pillow add your name, or initials:
Turn sweater back to right sides and iron the Joy Iron-On Embroidered Letters.
Cover letters with a clean soft cloth and iron the letters for 30 seconds.
Turn sweater pillow cover inside out, cover with cloth and iron for and additional
30 seconds. Allow letters to cool before finishing the pillow.
6. Because there is a lot of give with the sweater material. I was able to sew the 4th side
halfway and stuff the pillow form inside. I hand sewed the pillow closed.
7. To dress up the pillow...I created a sash to go around the pillow by sewing together some flannel scraps together.
8. Secure the sash around the pillow using a couple of big black buttons.
(the sash is removable)
The pillow is perfect for marking my spot on my favorite comfy chair.
Look for Joy® iron-on embroidered alphabet letter sheets
and appliques at your local craft store.
