Has your Christmas jumper shrunk in the machine? Has your Fair Isle knit got a hole in it? Did that gravy stain never wash out? Don’t worry – before you take your festive pullover to the recycling bank, here’s a quick and easy way to turn your favourite seasonal jumper into a cosy cushion for your bed or sofa…
When I got the opportunity to share my Christmas jumper DIY in this month’s Be Kind magazine, I jumped at the chance! It’s one of my favourite publications and I enjoy reading the inspirational pages from cover to cover. So you can imagine how excited I was to be able to contribute my project in time for Christmas!
You can find the step-by-step guide to make your own festive jumper cushions in the ‘Creativity’ section of issue 11, pages 102-103. I’ve shared 7 easy-to-follow steps with photographs so that you can turn your old Christmas jumper into something you’ll use every year.
But that’s not all you can make from festive pullovers – I’ve shared many other festive DIYs on my blog to help you use past-their-best knits to create Christmas bunting and to turn basic sweatshirts into customised Christmas jumpers that no-one else will have!
The January 2020 issue of Be Kind magazine is published now so grab yourself a copy and put your feet up to enjoy some chilled-out reading over the Christmas period. You can access the PDFs of my feature here:
