Wool Pants Pillow
What are you going to make this weekend? Maybe … a Wool Pants Pillow pieced together from old pants!?!
Cut off the legs of wool pants, open one seam, and make a 16 inch square. Then use other pant leg and cut rectangles and squares and sew them together quilt-style into another 16 inch square.
Sew the front and back together leaving an opening for the pillow insert. Turn right side out. I used a pre-fab pillow insert that I had left over from another project. Then pin and sew opening closed.
