Today I’m sharing this pretty and cozy felted sweater woven pillow.  It’s made from old wool sweaters that have been felted.  Ever have the bad experience of washing a wool sweater in hot water, and putting it in the dryer and then discovering it’s shrunk?  That’s exactly what you want to happen here.

I found some old sweaters at the thrift store.  They have to be made out of animal fibers in order to felt, so wool, or cashmere, or Angora all work well.  Once they’ve been felted, just cut them into strips.  Since they are felt, they won’t fray when they’re cut.  Then, weave your pillow top, to the size of the pillow insert you’re using.  Once the top is woven and pinned together for stability, sew a plain piece of fabric on the wrong side.  This piece will ensure that the felt doesn’t get pulled or stretched out of shape.  Make sure it’s a coordinating colour, since it will show through between some of the pieces.  After the top is all ready, use some more plain fabric to make an envelope style back -just like I did in this post.

Once it’s all stitched up, turn it right side out again and enjoy.

I love all the different textures and slightly different shades of the various sweaters together.
