I found a sweater at Savers the other day on their 50% off day marked $2.99. So that made it about $1.50. I washed it first and then I cut the arms off and cut the neck so it was straight. Then I put one of my pillows that came with my sofas inside. I didn't sew. I glued. Yes, my glue gun again to the rescue. It's now a soft and warm and cozy pillow.
And with the arms I made some sweater roses to dress up some plain pillows.
Not bad for $1.50. Do you have an old sweater in the back of your closet? Give it a new purpose.
