Easy DIY Pillow Cover

Standard

I bought a couple of 100% wool sweaters at the thrift shop recently.  Men’s because I love the colours and patterns that are so often used in men’s sweaters.  My intention was to felt the wool, which is best done with a machine knit sweater.  A trip through the washing machine and dryer gave me felted wool with no effort beyond pushing buttons.  Then I cut the sleeves off and trimmed the body into two matching squares and sewed them together to make a pillow cover.

Easy Peasy.  One down, one more to go.

 

 

I am now mulling over various ideas for using up the sleeves.
