I found this beautiful lambswool sweater at Goodwill. I loved the snowflake pattern so much I saved this sweater for something special.
It was a men's XL size, so there was a lot of it to work with.
After I felted the sweater I cut an 18" square from the front and back of the sweater, I sewed the edges together with off white wool yarn on three sides.
I felted it again to shrink it down a bit more, now it is a 16" pillow. I love the square clam shell buttons and thought they looked great along the open edge.
Can't decide if I am going to make this a Christmas present or if I want to keep it for myself.
I have another special sweater that is large squares of tan, brown, and cream that I thought I might make into a pillow too! That can be a craft for another day though...this time change has got me wanting to go to be waaayyy too early!
