Sweater into pillow tutorial

Posted on


New tutorial today!!! YAY!

So, do you have any old sweaters lying around that you don’t wear anymore but just can’t throw away? Why not turn them into cushy coach or bed pillows?

Let see, you will need:

1 old sweater (or 2, or 3…)

1 pair of good scissors or a rotary cuter (plus mat)

1 ruler

sewing thread and sewing machine



Ready to go?!

Just make a strait cut just below the arm holes.


Turn your square on the outside (wrong side out, right sides facing each other) and sew the upper edge close (and since it’s cotton I serged it to prevent fraying, you could also zigzag stitch it ) do the same on the waist band edge but leaving a couple of inches unclosed so you can fill the sweater. ( Since it’s the waist band and the edge is already finished up, no need to serge or zigzag it.)


Now just fill it up to the cushiness  you want, hand sew the opening close and add decorations to your liking!  I went with yo-yos for this one, as it will match Camille’s room 🙂


Easy peasy hey??!
