I was gifted a wool sweater after a family member accidentally laundered it. I repurposed the body of the sweater into a sofa pillow and one sleeve became a tea cozy. Careful cutting and 2 seams (top and bottom) are all it took for the pillow. The teapot cozy still resembles the sleeve of the sweater. I used some embroidery to finish the places I cut the sleeve, it disguises the raw edge and adds decoration.
