Sweater Pillow | Last Minute Gift

DSC_0230.jpg

at this very moment i am writing to you from a coffee shop in a small town where i am attempting to upload client files before said shop closes for christmas. its not a bad life, i'm drinking a huge cup of hot cocoa and listening to (regrettably) Owl city's peppermint winter. it could be much, much worse. i could be working retail right now. (says a pray for target workers) no i'm just sitting here, working on the never ending upload and i thought i would share a little idea i found on, wait for it...pinterest.

to be fair to myself, i actually thought of this without pinterest but when i typed it in, its definitely been before. so no shark tank for me, but it does make a great last minute gift idea! we all have big sweaters and stuffing lying around...oh you don't? just me? well then. here's what you do.

^^find a sweater thats a little bigger than the pillow you want to cover.

cut off the head. just kidding but cut it into a square. with the sweater material you want to cut it approximately the same size as the pillow because it will stretch.

turn it inside out and sew up the sides! i left the bottom of the sweater, (the finished edge) til last so that i could just sew straight across once it was right side out and the pillow was inside. that made it much easier to finish.

easy as cake.

happy christmas eve!
