Sweater To Pillow – Refashion Tutorial

Sweater To Pillow - Refashion Tutorial

Turn an old sweater into a cozy knitted pillow in less than 10 minutes!  It’s an easy refashion – even for sewing beginners – for those ill-fitting sweaters at the back of your wardrobe. 😀

It only takes about 5 minutes to turn a sweater into a cozy Christmas pillow. You can also use an old sweater with a stain or hole: just cover it up with a cute applique: a heart, star, reindeer

You’ll need:

  • old sweater
  • pillow
  • scissor
  • pins
  • sewing machine *

* You can also handstitch the sweater pillow with overcasting stitches.

Turn the sweater inside out. Put the pillow into the sweater, with the button closure in the middle. Pin around the pillow. Then cut out the rectangle + about 1/2 inch/ 1cm seam allowance. It doesn’t have to be perfect: Because it’s knit fabric, it’ll stretch around the pillow. Sew a double row of zigzag stitches around the four sides of the knitted pillow cover.

Now put the pillow into the sweater pillow case, button it up and you’re done! 😀 You can also use the sleeves of the sweater to make an envelope pillow cover. I tied a ribbon around the sweater pillow for Christmas.
