Sewing with Sweaters can have a great outcome, but don’t forget the tricks of the trade:
|I used a pre-filled pillow.|
|Start pinning to determine how much material is needed.|
|Pin this side, but do not sew it.|
|Pin the top and make sure that if your sweater has a pattern you can stretch|
it slightly to prevent the pattern from showing.
|Play around with a design for the front of your pillow.|
|I sewed the edges of the fabric together like a sleeve and sewed the seam.|
|I folded the edge in to create a pleat.|
|I added a satin sleeve to the center.|
|Place it in the center and sew.|
|Serge the upper edge if you can or use the zig zag stitch with|
your sewing machine.
|Stuff the pillow in and sew the side seam.|
