AGH....I have bags and bags of yarn scraps!! What do I do with all of this left-over yarn making clutter in my house?? I feel horrible throwing it away, so I wanted to think of an alternative way for me to recycle my yarn scraps. Well, here is one idea!
From yarn scraps to cool pillows.
I wanted to make some chevron pillows for my very old and ugly couches. I mean, why buy new couches when you have little kids, right? What is the point? So, I thought maybe some updated pillows would liven them up.
Here is what I did:
One of my many yarn scrap piles....
|1. Gather your left over yarn - |
I have mostly cotton and acrylic.
This is approximately the handful size you want while stuffing your pillows.
|2. And some poly-fil|
|3. Grab your handmade pillow case. |
Bought the fabric from Sew Fine Fabric on Etsy Here
|4. Time to stuff....work one big handful of yarn scraps and then one big handful of poly. Keep stuffing till your pillows are nice and firm.|
|5. Sew them up nice and tight and there you go|
|I even used some of the extra fabric to make a cool tag for my hungry caterpillar set!|
