Jumper to cushion upcycle

My Grandmother knitted this jumper for Sam last winter and he wore it loads. We were so dissapointed when it got too small for him and I couldn't bare to part with it but it was too bobbly to give to anyone so it has sat in my sewing room for months until I finally decided to turn it into a cushion for Christmas. I reinforced the side seams, sewed up the arm holes and cut the arms off. Then I sewed across the top + bottom openings leaving a small gap for turning. Once turned the right side out I stuffed it and sewed the gap closed. This way we'll get many more years pleasure out of a lovely jumper and a lasting legacy of my grandmother.
