So you remember this thrift haul, right?
Well, that sweater was purchased for a very specific project. I have been looking for a big red cabled sweater to make into a pillow for quite a while. And my patience was rewarded, for I finally found one.
We had some older couch pillows that were horrible, so I washed them and set to work making them better.
First the stuffing and "measuring" and then cutting.
I ran over the top edges of the cuts with the serger just so they wouldn't unravel. then the top seam got sewed together. Then the pillows went in and I crocheted the ribbed part together in a matching yarn.
And of course, it's already been adopted. They don't use the bed I made for them, but they'll use this.
