Using Old Sweaters To Make Super Cute Pillow Covers.

I have an old sweater that I want to use to make a cozy pillow cover. I found lots of examples in blogland of cute pillow covers made out of old sweaters. Check out my blog to see my favorites, and links back to the sources. This is going to be a huge challenge for me, I do not sew!
