Remember to grab a Make it New Monday button located at the bottom of this post to include in your post. Thanks so much!This month I am showing how I up-cycled a shrunken child's Christmas sweater into ornament sized pillows. The idea came from some sweater hearts that I saw on Pinterest. It was a quite simple project, taking only an hour or so to complete. I may make some hearts with the leftover fabric.
|I found the sweater for $1.00 and had the thread and poly-fil on hand. Inexpensive!|
|Cut apart sweater at seams.|
|Measure for seam allowance and cut to desired shape. I will leave a bit more seam allowance next time. Do and learn, right?|
|Pin well, and save scraps and buttons for another project.|
|Sew around edges with close stitches so that sweater doesn't unravel and leave a gap to turn right-side out after sewing. Stuff and sew the opening closed, hiding stitches as well as you can.|
|Finished product on display!|
