So I know Cable Knot Pillow Cases are just the thing going around. Like a cold but better! But the thing about the pillow cases and pillows is that they can cost anywhere from $28 and up. And Let’s be serious here who wants to spend $28 or more on 1 pillow. We have tons around our house. And we need definitely need more then 1 pillow.
So when I saw the cost of these pillows I told myself I was going to make my own for a fraction of the price. At first I thought why not knit some. Well I don’t knit. So I wondered why not crochet some. And I attempted but it was somewhat difficult and a very long process to cover and I tire pillow.
So I went with my least expensive and most effective way. A thrift store. I go everyonce in awhile to one so I figured why not look for a cable knit sweater to turn into a pillow case.
So when I recently went to my local thrift store and came across two sweaters I love, I knew I was going to be making my pillows that day!
And it was really easy.
- Hot glue gun & glue
- Needle & thread
First I cut off the arms and neck. Once all the side were cut off I turned it inside out and got my handy dandy hot glue gun out to work. I started hot glue all the sides together till I had three sides hot glued closed.
And your done. Now I was going to leave the pillows like this first but then I decided to get some buttons and make a closure for each pillow. Now this part is completely optional but in the end I’m glad I added mine.
I just loved how it made it look better. I went with 1 button on the gray pillow and three on the white. But again this is an optional step!
Hope y’all enjoyed!
This Blessed house
