DIY Sweater Throw Pillows With Rag Garland Embellishment

DIY Sweater Pillows with rag garland embellishment at

As you may know, I’ve been working on Kate’s new cottage inspired bedroom.  That means tons of little home-made details.  This week, I’ve been working on her bedding and curtains, and decided to make some throw pillows.  These aren’t just your run of the mill throw pillows, though…these are DIY sweater pillows!

Yep…pillows made from my old sweaters.

My friend Jill from Create.Craft.Love recently made some, so I decided to try and make some as well.  You can check out her tutorial for the actual pillow making instructions.

Scrap Fabric

I wanted to take the pink pillow a step further and add some embellishments.  I pulled out some of my scrap fabric and got to work.

I simply cut strips of fabric, tied them onto some bakers twine and sewed each end to the pillow.

Isn’t that little rag garland adorable and extremely cottagy?

I also used one of my white sweaters that had a small hole in it to make a creamy white pillow too.

Kate has been dragging this one around all over our home…she says it’s the most comfy pillow ever…now how sweet is that?

I’m using the same rag garland as part of her window treatment, but you will have to come back next week to see that!

Wanna see a little more of Kate’s room?  You can check out a sneak peak of her room here and also the aqua painted dresser with ribbon pulls that I rescued from the side of the road.

I can’t wait to show you the rest!!!
