Creative Pillow Ideas

Old sweaters ~ Cut sweater straight across under the sleeves through both front and back. Measure the width for pillow form. Turn sweater inside out and sew a seam at the top. Turn right side out. For bow closings, sew two equal-length ribbons just inside the open end of the pillow cover. For a closed end, insert the form and hand-stitch closed.
