I finally got around to this. The first thing I did was place my pillow inside the sweater to measure. The sweater is a size medium so I could only get one pillow from it. I determined that I should just cut the sleeves off at the shoulder and cut straight down. I also cut the turtleneck off of the top.
I went back and trimmed the whole top off even. Since my sweater did not have side seams, I had to sew all four seams. I cut the bottom off, allowing for a seam. I turned it inside out and sewed three sides and part of the four with the machine. I turned it right side out and placed the pillow inside. I finished the last seam by hand.
Here's my pillow.
I played around with placing in on the love seat and the couch.
I may go back and add some flowers to it. I have enough of the sweater left over in the sleeves to make some flowers and do a couple of other projects. These make nice cozy winter decor.
I featured some other sweater pillows that were my inspiration HERE.
