Sweaters On My Pillows

Everyone's doing it.  Making pillow covers for fall from Goodwill sweaters. 
I decided to give it a try.

I picked up 3 sweaters at our local Community Center Thrift Store.  The total cost for this purchase - $8.

I found that the sweaters I used were too small for my average size pillows.  I used the sleeves to add a piece to the end. 

I really like the different textures.

 I just love these cozy new pillows.  I plan to go to Goodwill this week and see if I can pick up a few more sweaters. 

Three pillows for $8.  You can't beat that anywhere.
