Thanks for anyone who voted last week!!! I am blown away by all the talent in the competition. I landed in the middle of the pack. Mine were the pillows!
This was the first pillow I made for my thrift store challenge. I fell in love with this fuzzy sweater, and it makes a great pillow, it’s so soft and comfy and matches my green walls (and couch) perfectly!
I started with a thrift store sweater and pillow.
I used the pillow as a template. Putting the right sides together I sewed it up almost completely, turned it right sight out and shoved the pillow inside!
Then I hand sewed the sweater the rest of the way closed.
Then I cut the neck and the rest of the sides off and right sides together I sewed the neck and body holes closed, and turned it back around.
I used the larger of the sides to create a rosebud center, as I was worried the arm/body tube wouldn’t be enough for the size I wanted. tucking the end of the arm/body tub under the rosebud I twisted the tube while wrapping it around the bud and stitching it to the pillow as I went, creating a rolled flower!
Don’t forget to check out the tutorials for the other pillows
I’ll be linking up a tutorial every day this week for each of the pillows. The new week of So You Think Your Crafty, Just for Kids, is up and running. So head on over
