Jackalope Pillow-Upcycled, Recycled wool felted sweater surgery style
To end the year I have probably one of my favorite Sweater Surgery projects yet to share with you!

It uses the combination of two of my favorite images into another of my favorite images.
The Jackalope!

I love it so much I used it twice!

    I cut a jackalope out of each color of the wool felted sweater taking care to flip the template over for the opposite pointing jackalope. Also paying attention to which color the background was the each was going to be needle felted on.

    This is what it looked like on the back after I needle felted the 2 pieces together. I sewed up the sides and I have a cute new slip cover for my old little pillow.

Really like this. Ive seen a similar one that costs £35 on hunkydoreyhome.co.uk, its a black scottie on red felt... though ive seen another which has this reverse thing. Yours looks really professional. I must learn to needle felt

I love your jackalope pillow! My parents went out west, and came back with one - me and Mom so fell for it! We didn't know - ever since then it's been a big joke, but - I love it!! Happy
