Just me again, strolling through pins over at Pinterest. I actually sat down yesterday, pulled out my sewing machine, and did some crafting! I can't even remember the last time I did that. But I saw this great idea for sweater pillows and immediately envisioned my couch which was in need of a "pop" of color.
So the kids and I headed to Goodwill. Thanks to St. John's Bay and Worthington, as well as two pillow forms, I now have two fabulous throw pillows...
Thanks to the Brassy Apple for her step by step instructions. If you're interested in the directions you can check out her blog HERE. Thankfully she had picture instructions as well as other pillows she had made with several different styles of sweaters. They were super cute.
My favorite part of the project? The rosettes.
Brassy Apple actually links to a Rosette making tutorial from Craftaholics Anonymous. You can click HERE for a direct link to that tutorial.
Fun project although I can see areas that are needing improvement. It is fun, though, to see them on the couch. They certainly add that "pop" I was looking for and all for around $20 for both! Not bad.
