So the sweater that I posted earlier to make these cuffs, also gave me the pleasure of becoming my new pillow!
Let's start at the beginning.
This old thing...
Has seen the end of the line. But it's being reincarnated.
First she needed a good pilling. (I don't know what you call these, but if you ever buy clothes second hand you need one! All those furry balls on your sweaters get eaten up by this little do-dad.)
A pillow lining I just had lying around is finally coming in handy.
Scary, but invigorating! I tried not to wiggle it too much so she wouldn't start fraying on me.
I had to pull her pockets off so as to not obstruct the final product. Plus do I really want pockets on my pillow? Weird. (I'm guessing someone out there has a pocket on their pillow for a tv remote though! Because people are just so weird about things like that - please don't say you have one)
While taking away her pockets, I cut a small hole (OOPS!) But anyone who has ever used nail polish to stop a run in their nylons would think like me and use a glue gun to stop the sweater from fraying, right? Don't worry, it's not that noticeable.
Then I stitched the heck out of it because I didn't know what stitch I should do to stop it from fraying, so I used 3 different stitches and went over it again and again! This baby isn't going to give me trouble, no sir-eee. If you're thinking it looks all bunchy, it does! But it's not noticeable when I flip it right side out.
I loosely hand stitched in between the buttons to keep the rumples down.
Now that is one classy lady!
Go ahead grab that old sweater and give her a little snip, snip. I have to say I like her a lot better now. This has become my new favourite couch napping pillow!
I'm sure I have seen these around, but I just came across them on the Pottery Barn website for $59 each!!!
I have to say, that I prefer free!
