My lovely ‘Joseph‘ sweater, very old but much loved, has had one warm wash too many and is really felted. I got a friend’s mum to knit a new one for me. It’s perfect and it fits. So I have turned the old one into a warm wooly cushion.
The first step was to undo the old seams using my lovely new Korbond seam unripper .
I cut off the funnel neck and then squared up the front and back of the sweater
so they were the same size.
With right sides facing machine the front to the back round three sides,
leave the bottom of the ex sweater open.
Insert a cushion pad and by hand oversew the bottom edge to close.
