Upcycled Sweater

Don't these PB knit pillow covers look super warm and comfortable? I think they do but the price tag was too steep for me. I made my own using thriftstore sweaters. Each sweater was $4 and I already had the pillow inserts. I am in the mood to decorate for Valentine's day hence the red and pink.

I simply cut the sweater under the arms and then did a simple stitch at the open ends and wa-lah! a super cute holiday pillow.
I, of course, had to put a sweater rosette on it too. It just adds a little sass to it. Enjoy!


  1. Great job! I'm headed to my local good will to look for sweater too. I can't wait to try this!

  2. Those are CUTENESS!!! Feel free to put one in my crafty Valentine's Day Care Package that I am sure you are planning to send me. ;)

  3. Love the red and pink for Valentines Day! They turned out super cute!

    Thanks for linking up to FFA!
