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.

So I really love wearing my flannels under sweaters and getting the look of the cuffs and collar at the top of my sweater…but sometimes my flannels just don’t want to cooperate with my sweaters with out making me look like i’m flat chested and gained ten extra pounds….so this is an easy diy that can be mixed with all kinds of clothing. and it only cost me A DOLLAR OH EIGHT!
Supplies you’ll need:
1. A template (i just looked at some pictures online and drew out my own)
2. Hole puncher
4. A button (thank you to Kati J for the best present ever….a box of buttons)
5. Needle and thread
6. Felt (you can use any color you want! I just found an extra large christmas stocking and cut the white part off)
8. Hot glue gun, mod podge, or fabric glue
Use your template to cut out two of the same shapes from your felt. I found it helpful to use pins to hold the paper against the felt. You want sharp scissors to do this…or else your felt will stretch and look awkward.
Next use your hole puncher to punch a hole at every rounded portion except the biggest one in the front.
They should look like this. (it doesn’t matter if they’re perfect, I have awful scissors)
Next you should sew your button into the bottom rounded ends. (I messed up here…trial and error. I originally put holes in the bottom rounds so I could sew the button through the holes, but this did not work…(at all) for the type of button I used. So depending on the type of button you’re using you could do it either way. I had to cut new patterns out and sew the two pieces together with the button)
Next loop your ribbon through the top hole and use some type of glue to fold the ribbon over onto itself to keep it fastened…if you tie it and use a knot it could rip the felt.
Do this to both sides….and tada! You’ve got your very own felt collar to add to any shirt or sweater.

Was talking about maybe making a stocking for my soon-to-be born niece. I remembered seeing this and thought it was really cute. Hmmmmmm.
