Make a snuggly cushion using an old or unloved wool jumper.  I added an applique design from a cushion i made previously. 


Start by cutting the arms off. Then accross the shoulders and down the sides. Use the seams as guides.

Next make the front and the back pieces into  rectangle shapes. You can also use the arms if you open them up.

Step 1:

Now is when you add an applique design if you want to. To make one like mine draw a design on a sheet of paper. Cut out and lay on your chosen fabric. I used a wool tartan scrap. Cut out and add any embelishments.

If making one small cushion from the front piece, fold in half and pin in place your applique. make sure you dont pin it to the back of the cushion
If using the front of the jumper as the front of a big cushion pin applique in place.

Ignore the cream fabric around my applique this is where i cut it from the old cushion i had made before.

Months ago I bought the exact same thing (a wool-like jumper) I would never wear with snowmen on it. Specifically with 2 winter DIY pillows in mind! (You might want to edit your 1st sentence to say cushion or pillow instead of jumper twice...just a typo). Great idea for self or a gift!!
