Oh, I really like this idea. How did you prevent it from unraveling? Did you first sew and then cut? Did you use a straight, zig-zag, or overlock stitch? I know I'm asking a lot of questions. I'd really like to give this a try but I'm afraid to start cutting and then have the whole sweater unravel before my very eyes!
Blessings,
Kim

Debbie Roberts

Love the cushions, Id like to know how you stop it unraveling too.

The buttons are beautiful too

Have you velcro'd the open end together and just sewn the buttons on. This is a brilliant idea. X

PepPop

Great idea and love the buttons - I see your cats like your cushions too :) Jaqui x

Eleanor

Thanks.
Sharon I stitched the buttons on through both layers of the sage one for now, but I will either make buttonholes or stitch poppers on the others when I have my inners. If the inners are washable I may not even make the covers removable, lol.

Love these perhaps photos on how to make would be good as i'm not a sewer and it all sounded a little complicated...I'm a bit thick you see :)
