DIY Repurposed Sweater Knot Pillow

From the blogger: "This sweater knot pillow was actually made from the leftovers of other projects. I love to repurpose and upcycle old sweaters into pillows and rugs but often I don't use the sleeves. For this pillow, I gathered up all those unused sweater sleeves and stitched them together to make one very long tube. If you don't have sleeves, you can use tights or any stretchy material you can sew into a tube. I stuffed the pillow as I stitched. Once the tube was finished I tied it into one giant Celtic knot to make this unusual but fun pillow."

This is going to be such a fun gift for each of our 4 children this Xmas! They are going to LOVE these Knot Pillows and I have already started selecting some fabrics from the ever growing stash in my workroom to match their bedroom decor. Might even make one for my workroom too!
