I am cheap. Yep, I look for creative ways to make our house comfortable ...on the cheap. I longed for a comfortable spot to put my feet up by the fire. Enter a one dollar garage sale hassock. That's what we call them in the south. And one large sweater from Goodwill.
I pulled the sweater inside out, over the hassock and carefully tailored it to fit (not really, stretchy is very forgiving.) I went around the bottom with quarter inch elastic so it comes off easily.
So, here is the finished project. Very cozy and the cat loves it. I used the leftover arms to make some more stuffed pumpkins.
Have a lovely fall day! Blessings.
