I'd rather NOT make a pillow... but not sure what I can make... it was a teen size, now think it might fit a toddler! LOL

Shrug? Or is it way too small?

There's always the unravelling option - pull it all undone cartoon-style and knit something new?

i actually accidentally shrunk my favorite sweater years ago. it had a zipper on the front and it felted into a point in the front on the bottom. so! i decided to make it into an underbust corset which i havent exactly finished yet. just cut the top how youd like and just get some grosgrain or something equally sturdy and sew it around the waist (i sewed in in places at the seams on the side and front and back to keep it from stretching at the waist too much. and either zipper or grommet the front/back. then again, it really all depends on how much it shrunk.

Arm warmers/wrist cuffs? A little makeup bag? Or you could cover a cheap headband with a bit of it and still get to wear it...

lots of people do that on purpose!  i don't think it's just me anyways   Cheesy
there are a lot of good ideas in Second Time Cool: the art of chopping up a sweater.

i've been making bags out of the torsos of sweaters, armwarmers and hats and gloves and wristbands out of the rest.

Legwarmers with the sleeves. I like the idea of mittens and a hat set. I know theres a tut on here to make a cute hat. And I know theres one for mittens too.

Cut off the arms and sew up the bottoms. Stick a wine bottle in it, tie it up with a ribbon and give it as a nice hostess/host gift.
