So obviously I’m the last person on planet earth to make a DIY sweater pillow!
They have been all over blog land the past few years and although I’ve admired every single one it’s taken me until 2014 to make one!
I may be late to the ‘mixing of sweaters and pillows game’ but I’ve finally joined the club.
I found a pretty white cable knit sweater at Goodwill a few weeks ago to recover a boring brown pillow and made this:
Sweet DIY Button Heart Sweater Pillow!
Buttons (I used grey and white buttons)
Pink and blue embroidery thread
First, I cut out two rectangles from the sweater that were 2 inches wider and 2 inches longer than the pillow form.
Pin the two sweater pieces with right sides together.
Sew three sides together with a 1” hem, leaving one of of the ends open to insert the pillow form.
Turn the sweater pillow cover right side out and insert the pillow form.
Sew on 5 buttons to the open end to secure.
Cut a heart shape from the felt.
Sew felt heart to the middle front of pillow using embroidery thread using a running stitch.
Add buttons as desired.
Embroider any message you’d like to felt heart using embroidery thread. I added an ‘Xo Xo’ message!
I don’t know what took me so long to make a sweater pillow because not only was it easy to make but I think it’s super adorable!
I hope you enjoyed my DIY Heart Sweater Pillow Tutorial today! Try it – it’s so easy!
