Recycle Old Sweaters Into Cozy Throw Pillows

If you’d like to add a little something “extra” to your sewing business, I’ve just run across something that I think would be useful for making a few extra bucks.

FaveCrafts has a great tutorial by Heidi Borchers for creating throw pillows from old sweaters.

SweaterPillows

They say you can pick up old sweaters from thrift stores or yard sales and make them into throw pillows for yourself or others (or to sell).

As an extra benefit to your own customers, how about offering a service to make THEIR old, outgrown or out of fashion sweaters into pillows.  One of my granddaughters has a beautiful sweater that she just loved, but has outgrown.  She won’t give it up to put on a yardsale or give to Good Will, so when I saw this super idea I immediately thought of her.   We are now going to make her a “cozy” pillow out of that sweater.

Thank you FaveCrafts for the great idea you’ve passed along!
