Fair Isle Vest Pillow

This is another recycle project! I found this boxy vest in a Rubbermaid tote full of winter clothes I hadn't opened in a couple of years.  It took this:

and this (which was my first recycle project--that's the back of one of my old skirts dressing up as a pillow cover):

to make this:

After the 15-20 minutes it took to measure, cut, and sew the pillow cover, I decided the floppy end needed some buttons.  Making the buttonholes took as long as making the entire cover! But I like them. And now my embroidered linen pillow has a cozy sweater for winter. :)
