Introduction: Pillow Cover From Old Sweater
I recently bought a sweater from a thrift store to make some of my own knitted leg warmers. After that project was done I still had the majority of the sweater left. With the fake bone button and the fold over style I inspired to create a fall slip cover for my couch pillow.

Step 1: Supplies
To make a sweater slip cover I used
Step 2: Measure Your Pillow
I started by slipping the pillow I wanted to cover into the sweater.
I did this to see how much I needed to cut on the bottom and the sides of the sweater to make the pillow
Step 3: Sew Up Sides of Sweater
I started by flipping the sweater inside out and sewed up the side seams of the sweater.
After I flipped it back right side out and slipped the pillow back in to check for correct sizing.
Step 4: Sew the Bottom
My next step was to sew the bottom of the sweater.
I started by pinning the sweater where I wanted the seam to be, then sewed it together, cutting after the seam.
Step 5: Sew Off Top
The last step I had to do was sew off the top. The sweater I used had a bit of a collar so I had to do some folding to get the collar to sit correctly when sewn.
After sewing I chopped of the extra collar and folded it right side out again.
Step 6: Finished
After the last of the sewing my pillow cover was finished. I was able to easily slip the pillow into the pillow form and create an awesome fall pillow look.
