Bored of last year's Christmas jumper
and in desperate need of an excuse to
buy a new one? Follow this easy DIY
tutorial and learn how to make a cosy
cushion out of an old Christmas jumper.
Place your pillow form onto your jumper and measure
round the pillow, leaving an extra inch on all sides for
sewing space, and 2 inches on one side for where you
tuck the pillow into it. If your jumper has a motif on the
front make sure that’s in the middle of the pillow.
Get cutting! Snip off those sleeves and
excess jumper (carefully! No one wants
a wonky pillow).
Turn the jumper material inside out and pin 3
side together, leaving a side free so you
can pop the pillow insert into it later.
Sew 3 sides together, remove all pins as you
go and turn the right way round and pop
your pillow inside.
Pop the pillow form in and snuggle
up with your cosy new cushion. Easy!
