Sweater Pillow DIY Tutorial

Sweater Pillow DIY

Do you have that one sweater that you just love and wish you could wear every day – no matter the weather? Instead of wearing it so much you wear it out, try out this DIY project below so you can still cuddle with it, even if you outgrow it!

Maybe you bought an ugly Christmas sweater last year for a party, but next year you’ll need a new one. Instead of letting that sweater that you wore once go to waste, make it into a pillow that will adorn your couch through the holiday months next year!

This is a great way to reuse and recycle old clothes that you don’t want to get rid of but probably won’t wear again. Whether you’ve outgrown it or never know what to wear it with – now you can make it a part of your home decor.

Imagine that comfy, waffle-cone textured sweater as a permanent napping pillow on your couch? Perfect right? And the great thing about today’s DIY is that you can add a design to the sweater or you can skip those steps if you already love what the sweater has on it or want it plain!

All you need to make a sweater pillow is:

  • Design template (if you’re going to add a design)
  • Thick white yarn
  • Plastic yarn needle
  • Your choice of sweater
  • Fabric scissors
  • Plain matching cotton fabric
  • Pillow stuffing

Now you can find the full tutorial here at A Beautiful Mess. Soon you’ll fill your couch, chairs, and bed with these comfy pillows of different designs! Mix and match your winter wardrobe (because then you have an excuse to replace it later this year!) to create the perfect home decor and make the most of your money.

We’d love to see your pillow pics when they are complete!
