This project was super easy for me… mainly because someone else did all of the hard work and made me a knitted pillow cover! 🙂
I had a… let’s say… well loved and aged fleece pillow that my washing machine mysteriously tried to eat one day. I was not at all ready to get rid of one of my favourite pillows so I designed a cover for my beloved pillow. The only major problem with my design was that it involved a knitted cover… and I don’t knit! UGH! So, I enlisted the help of a wonderful woman who loved me enough to spends HOURS knitting my pillow cover. (Thanks MOM!!!)
When she finished the miniature “blanket”, I used the same yarn and sewed up the sides of the cover. To close the top I chose some wide brown ribbon that added a feminine touch. Since I wanted to be able to change up the closing and be able to take off the cover to wash it, I simply put the ribbon through a space in the knitting and tied it up. The beauty of leaving the top open, is that I can some day switch it up and use big wooden buttons or something of the sort to change up the look!
I love the look of my “new” pillow and cant wait to use it for years to come.
