Cozy Sweater Pillow


sweater-pillowI made a sweater pillow last fall, but lately I’ve seen lots of pretty ones in magazines and on Pinterest so I was in the mood to make another. Lucky for me, I had a vintage sweater-poncho my mother-in-law had tossed out with enough “good parts” left to cut out two perfect rectangles with cabling on the side. I added my favorite metal buttons from my grandmother’s button box (I called them the “bumblebee buttons” when I was little!) and came up with this soft, smooshy, 16 x 20 pillow that will have a home on my sofa the rest of the winter. ♥

  2. Truly Bonza idea. I want one!! The next time I am in an opp shop I am buying a jumper and making a cushion cover with it. You have really good ideas!!! I adore the embellishment too.

    • Thank you! You wouldn’t BELIEVE how soft and squooshy it is! And I love these buttons, too! They were my favorite in Grandma’s button tin growing up. So this is one pillow I’ll never part with! 🙂

      • I love the word “squooshy” and I double love that you used buttons from your Grandmother’s button tin. It is a lovely pillow.
