This might just be one of my favorite projects! These cozy accent pillows were a snap to make and they give a big punch off fuzzy warmth to my winter decor!
The best part is they cost next to nothing to make… I made both pillows in just a little over one hour…

I’m using a lot of white accents this winter… with lots of texture. The sweater pillows lend an extra layer of interest and nubbiness!
I picked up 2 winter white ladies sweaters at Goodwill… they both had an attractive pattern. I thought they would play nicely together. One of the sweaters reminded me of snowballs… perfect for winter!
I think the fun of making a sweater pillow is it’s individual uniqueness! I let each sweater dictate the way it would finally look.
It’s all about the detail!
This  pillow got a mish-mosh of buttons to close it up…
And the other less detailed pillow… got a ruffle!
Stop back on Saturday for a step-by-step SWEATER PILLOW TUTORIAL.  Sew (wink) easy!

    Can’t wait to read how you made them. They are so warm and cozy looking. I hope you took a nap in their midst after making them! Still can’t believe it only took a little over an hour. Very impressive to this inept sewer. Melinda

    Yvonne, I just want to go snuggle in your cozy, sweater pillows. They look so inviting. I am thinking of making my own, because my favorite wool sweater was put in the dryer by my daughter and now is sized for a small dog. I kept it, so maybe I’ll get with the program and make some pillows. Yours are darling. BTW, my internet is back!!

    Those couldn’t be cuter! love, love, love the buttons. My hubbie gave me a sweater for Christmas that might have made a cute pillow…if it wasn’t so UGLY! ha, but we all got a good laugh out of it and it got returned! Can’t wait for the tutorial!

    I just bought a beautiful cable knit sweater at Goodwill to make pillows with so I can’t wait to see your tutorial. I can figure out the obvious, but I wasn’t sure if I cut the sweater what I should do to make sure the knitting doesn’t all unravel! I’m now following you so I don’t miss your instructions.
