Sweater pillows


 I saw this post for  sweater pillows  ..so off we went to the Good will store .. I got 2 cream colored sweaters and a light brown sweater. The argyle sweater was in the closet ( don't tell my husband) :)

 I decided to add some little crocheted roses to one of the pillows , the pattern is attic 24 roses .. I did one tan, brown and aqua.. and made the two leaves. All of it was very easy ! I think they look great on our bed



 Aren't the little roses adorable ??



I also got another Prairie Schooler Santa stitched.. this one is the 1988 Santa.
 Hope you all have a great week ! Thank you for visiting and all your nice comments !!

Oh how wonderful they look!!! I made a sweater pillow out of an old vintage wool ski sweater, and everyone loves it. Your addition of the flowers is so perfect. Our bedrooms look very similar. I have a large mustard Bloomie on a sage green pillow on our bed, and I love it!
Happy Day!!!

Love these! I will be on the hunt! Fortunately, I can just go and look in my daughter's drawers...she seems to wear them once and then either she outgrows them quickly, or purposely throws them in the dryer...(hint, hint Mom, I don't like this one!) Bet she will after this:)

What a fun, clever idea!! I love your PS Santa, too, but you already knew that. ;) Those things are so addictive!

I liked the pillows and since I get to hot wearing sweaters anymore, so I guess I could turn them into pillows. Cute!!!
