Well a few days ago I got around to doing that. I had a sweater, that I really liked, but was too small for me (read too short - and there was a chance of some crack showing if I sat down).
Well, another problem area was the boring pillows on my couch:
So, I cut the sweater into squares, sewed it to some plain cream fabric that I had laying around, inserted the old plain cream pillows and boom - instant textured pillows.
Now - remember how I said that the sweater was too small for me? Well it is kinda too small for the pillows too... if you look closely, they are kind of like stuffed sausages. I am not going to show you the back of the pillows, since that is like a muffin top. But you get the idea. Beside, from the front, no one is the wiser.
One more time - Plain before:
And the pretty after:
Okay, so the really cool shag pillow that my rents got me for Christmas makes a huge statement too, but I think that the sweater pillows help out too!
What do you think? 1 down - 10 more to go!
