I wanted to do this challenge in the worst way... I combed the Goodwill piling my cart full of ugliness and then it occurred to me.. "I need to make something that I could really use!" and I needed a pillow for the couch... So I ended up with 1 item.. a horrible sweater for $3.99.
 I washed it in hot water and felted it and got this! FYI I love this pillow!

the ugly sweater... eeeewwwww

That's really cute! It's funny how the pattern that looks so ugly on the sweater looks great on the owl!

I think that pillow is adorable and I'm totally stealing your idea for when I redecorate the lounging section of my craft room!!
