I despise our couch and love seat in the family room. They are threadbare, the springs stick out the backs, they’re an all around mess. But… Papa points out that with a four year old and an almost two year old replacing them might not be the best idea at this moment. So instead I’m making pillows. I think there will be a lot more before I’m through, enough so I don’t have to look at the couch anymore. So this is the first of many.
It’s made from a sweater that I felted. I used the ribbing around the waist of the sweater to make a finished edge on the back. But, I sort of liked how it looked and then I thought of some owl buttons I had from Molly. Presto, change-o — back becomes front. Instead of making buttonholes I sewed the pillow shut. I figure I’ll have to take the buttons off the pillow if I’m going to wash it anyway.
