If Gap Had A Home Store

sweater

I bought this sweater at the Gap Outlet Store when Avery was a baby,

pillow

and over the weekend turned it into a pillow for her room.

Now I know what to do with some of the old sweaters accumulating in the back of my closet.

  3. So cute! I always wanted to make my kids quilts out of the outfits they wore that were my favorites. At the time I didn't have the heart to cut them up. Now I have too many projects going. I think I'll wait until they have kids and make them at that time.

  10. We had that sweater! Look at that I say we. My daughter had that sweater. She wore it for years because I rolled up the sleeves seven times two years before she reached the right size. I wish I had thought the make a pillow out of it. It looks lovely.

  11. Very cute, Molly. And if Gap had a home store, we would all be in trouble! Or maybe you would have a new job ;)

  14. I love the stripes. That is one of my favorite uses of an old or felted sweater (and its one of the few things I can sew).

  16. Beautiful. I just repurposed a baby shirt of Benen's that I have not been able to let go of (though less decoratively - made a clothespin holder). Did you use a pillow form in this?
    also- banner=happy

  18. I think it's time for me to tear up some old clothes, too. A braided rug, maybe? Pin cushions? Hmmm ...
