    is your throw 'arm knit'? Love your cozy chair! Great holiday pillow.

      Arm knitting is different than knitting, you can do a search online and learn how, it isn't hard! If we lived close I would love to teach you to knit but if you really want to learn how - find your local yarn shop and talk to the people there, also you can search "learn to knit" and go from there. It is a wonderful skill to know! I honestly can't imagine my life without knitting.

    I am not familiar with no sew tape. How does it work? Would Velcro work.

      Yes Velcro would definitely work! You cut to size .. peel it on both ends and it sticks to the fabric together!

    How does no sew tape work? Is it permanent? I was thinking about using Velcro so I could use pillows I have then after Christmas remove the cover.

      Velcro is a great idea to change out the pillow for washing the cover or ease in packing cover away.

    This is genius. Velcro would work better so the covers can be changed with other holidays and/or seasons.

    That red truck gets around at Christmas time. Love the idea and will look for the bags at Walmart.
