i'm sure someone's done something similar to this, but if they did i couldn't find it (not in this forum at least) so i'm gonna post it up.
http://img28.photobucket.com/albums/v85/striped/sweaterpillow.jpg

made from a $3 clearance sweater, with a fashionable (and homemade) felt flower brooch to really look like something someone with tacky taste (it's baby pink for cryin out loud ^_^) might wear.  since i only sewed two sides, it came out a bit lumpy and misshapen, but it's comfy and that's all that matters.  it's a good size for one head while watching tv.

the bulk of this was made from remnents- a red jersey for the front, and supercool orange furry fabric for the back.  the spiderman is from a little boys tee!  made for my boyfriend to snuggle with.

i think what i did here is pretty straightfoward, but if anyone has questions, go for it!  these are my first pillows and as obviously unskilled as they are (sewing machine?  pillowforms?  for the weak!  mine are cheaply made!), i wanted to show them off anyway Cheesy

are you saying you didn't use pillow forms?  did you just stuff them with fiberfill, or what?

i really like the spidey pillow.

i stuffed them with create-a-craft cluster stuff (which i think is supposd to be for stuffed animals).  i think most fiberfills are too bunchy and pillowforms are way too expensive- might as well just buy a cheap pillow at the store for the price.
