Uses for Old Sweatshirts

Paris France SweatshirtUse outgrown holiday sweatshirts for pillow covers. Measure the pillow (or pillow form) plus one inch all around. Cut out matching front and back pieces of sweatshirt or fronts from two sweatshirts if you want reversible pillows. Stitch around three sides, put pillow inside sweatshirt cover, and stitch fourth side.


You could also tuck the sleeves inside sweatshirt body and put pillow inside, tucking in extra fabric and hand stitching, if you want to be able to re-cover the pillow again after the holidays.
