Upcycled Coat Pillow

I have a running tab of decorative things that I would love to get for my home, but I try not to buy them new and sometimes even find a way to make them! This is one of my favourite decoration projects yet! I had an old winter jacket in my closet that wasn't quite warm enough for Calgary winters and I was so thrilled to find a use for it.

I think this is a fun project for several reasons. First, if the fabric starts as a jacket, your sewing is halfway done already, which makes the project easier and faster! Second, your pillow will be one of a kind because it is made by you and upcycled from a unique jacket. And finally, sewing it from a coat means that one side of the pillow will be plain fabric and the otherside will have a neat button and pocket effect, which looks super cool and gives you some decorative options!
