Nap Time Crafts: Cardigan to Cushion in 10 Minutes!

cardigan to cushion

Last week, I very cleverly managed to shrink both my and George’s woolen jumpers in the washing machine. Whoopsie. I tried to stretch them out but to be honest, they’re goners. I was about to throw them in the bin when I thought I’d try something first. I took my cardigan, chopped it up, stitched it into a square and BOOM! A cushion cover! This was the easiest thing I’ve ever made… Try it, it literally takes ten minutes.

You will need:

An old cardigan
A cushion
Scissors
thick pen
A sewing machine.

1. Start by measuring your cushion.

2. Then chop off the arms, turn your cardigan inside out and draw the cushion measurements on in pen.

3. Pin all the way around the line, ensuring the front and back of your cardigan is lined up straight. Then, using a zig zag stitch, sew all the way around the line.

4. Cut around the line – pinking shears are best for this, to prevent fray.

5. Unbutton the cardigan and turn the right way round. Poke out all the corners

6. Stuff in your cushion and button up.

You’re finished!
