In my quest to find uses for "retired" items, I came across this great idea for an old sweater. Instead of tossing it, turn it into a pillow. It will most likely be one-of-a-kind and a great conversation piece! The crafter recommends a boyfriend sweater, but I don't see any reason why any sweater couldn't be used. Also, if you don't have a sewing maching, there's no reason why this can't be done by hand. It's a great, simple idea and keeps one item out of the trash.
