The Made in Minutes Sweater Pillow

10 Minutes
I took one sweater and made 4 crafts! This was craft number 2 the fast no sew throw pillow!
I am having so much fun sharing with you the One Sweater 4 Crafts Series. I took an old sweater and made it into 4 neat crafts. These crafts are easy & fast. I did not spend a dime and I love it. Being frugal is really so much fun to me. I love being creative with what I already have.
First you take the bottom part of the sweater after you have cut the sweater mid way the chest.
Next you need some fabric glue or hot glue. Use fabric glue if you plan to keep this a long time and want to wash it later.
Then press each section you glue together. Press well to get it into the fabric & hold a few seconds.
Do not glue the middle button section together leave it open. Now turn it inside out again to now have the top layer back in place you will now have seams!
I did not want to purchase anything to make this pillow so I folded old towels to stuff it. When I get ready for something different I will slide my towels out & carry on.
Then simply button up the middle!

    You could use the arms of the sweater to make leg warmers/boot toppers!

      @Barbara C Already did in the series I made fingerless gloves and boot cuffs and used even the top to make a craft! Click the link in my post to see! They turned out cute!

    I was trying to figure out what to do with an old sweater that is too big for me. This is great. I'm going to make one using an old towel and that sweater and will put it in my bath to use behind my head while soaking in the tub. And my sweater is the perfect color to match my bath decor. Thank you so much!!
