I found this fun and funky heart-shaped sweater pillow on Pinterest.  I clicked to check out who made it!!  When pinning, I always visit the website and pin from there.  If I don’t there’s too much I miss out on.  Like finding a new blogger to follow!

Jen, who is one of the creative sisters that blog at eighteen25, made this sweater pillow.  I wanted to make one for that romantic holiday coming in a few weeks!  I followed the easy steps Jen shared on the post so pop on over for the steps.  Plus there are a couple more pillows to check out!!!

Now for my version


I found a white cable knit cotton sweater at our Humane Society resale store.


The one thing I did differently…

…stick a rustic arrow through the pillow!


Actually, I left two openings for stuffing.  Then when hand sewing, I left two small holes to add the rustic arrow.

The arrow I made from a round spindle from an old chair and scraps of trim and broken pieces.  I cut the spindle in half.  One spindle became the arrow and the other the feathers??  Is it called feathers on the tail end of an arrow??

Anyway, pieces I glued with wood glue and nailed into place.


Then I stuck the tip onto one small opening and the tail “feathers” into the other.

Now for a commercial break to check out more ideas for spindles…

Time to take pictures of the “decorative no napping rustic arrow sweater pillow” I gathered a few more heart pillows and a small heart chalkboard.  The large fringed pillow in the back was made by my niece when she was about nine.

I love it!

Plus it’s more comfortable for napping! 🙂
