Cut a little here, snipped a little there and came up with this:
I also used an old sheet and cut out 2 rectangles the same size as the above pillow pieces to act as a lining. I sewed all 4 together, stuffed with batting, and then hand stitched the pillow closed.
For the leg warmers, I sewed on the cuffs to the top (which were cut from the bottom of the sweater), and added a flower I made from tulle. I made both in one night. Another fun project, and completely free!
