The countdown continues! Only 6 more fridays til Christmas and I need to pat myself on the back here a minute because I have actually started my Christmas shopping! Mainly because I needed some presents for under the tree for a photo shoot, but still it counts!
This week I’m sharing a quick idea for making fun Christmas pillows. Last year I made this cute sweater pillow from a sweater I found at Goodwill. I was on the hunt to make a few more this year, but I totally struck out at the sweater department. That’s when a red flannel skirt caught my eye!
Then this jacket popped out at me, pretty soon I was looking at all the departments for cool fabric for pillows. I even had a lovely elderly woman tell me she thought the sweater would look “just fantastic” on me :) I explained to her I was going to make it into a pillow and she was a little flabbergasted!
She said “you must be one of those crafty pinterest gals!” ha, well I try anyways :)
In total it cost me about $12 for a sweater, jacket, and skirt and I made 4 pillows out of them. I backed them all with some scrap white fabric I had leftover from another project. And boom my couch is cozily Christmasfied!
