Pottery Barn Pillow Knock off!

A good friend of mine sent me the link to a really cute pillow at pottery barn last week. The only problem, the pillow was $49 and that was just for the cover! You still had to buy the actual pillow! So of course, I knocked it off! 
With some burlap, old wool sweaters and yarn, I was able to create this:

I cut the stocking from an old sweater, used heat n bond to attach and then sewed in place. I attached some yarn to the top with permanent fabric glue and sewed the pillow together!


 I like it so much I think I may some more but with different prints and colors!
So what do you think? I do have this one available in my ETSY shop, for much less than pottery Barn, and mine is complete! 
Here are a couple other pillows I made tonight. All 100% recycled products! 

 This was from a sweater that had really cute winter scenes all over it! I have cut them all out to use on various projects!
