Felted Pillow Covers
Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 2006
A trio of pillowcases incorporates sweater bodies, sleeves, and waistbands. Before you begin, learn how to felt a sweater.
Customize one that works with the design of your felted sweaters.
The white cover consists of a cashmere sweater's body that is sewn on one end; add ties (3/4-inch strips, rolled and whipstitched) to other end. To conceal pillow inside, fold another piece of the fabric over its edge and stitch one end to cover. The envelope-style orange cover (with darts at corners) uses pieces from a sweater's body and sleeves. For tan cover, make a patchwork top by piecing together sleeves; secure with a zigzag stitch.
