Our pillows see us through the good times and the bad times, but when it's time to say goodbye, what do you do with them? We've teamed up with sleep wellness brand eve sleep to launch the #mypillowupcycle challenge. We want to see what dreamy makes you can create with your old pillows! 

Time to craft and unwind

We think sleep is pretty important, raise your hand if you’ve spent too many nights muttering “just one more row” only to realise it’s suddenly the small hours of the morning? That’s where eve sleep comes in. At eve sleep they are committed to helping you get the sleep you need to rise and shine, from campaigning to make sleep a human right, to designing everything from mattresses and pillows to bed frames and sheets all to improve the quality of your snoozing!

How to enter the competition

1. Share your upcycled pillow project to your Instagram feed using the hashtag #mypillowupcycle

2. Tag @evesleep and @lovecraftscom⁠ in the post

3. Don't forget to also follow @evesleep and @lovecraftscom

You can check out all the T’s and C’s here.

The prize!

By entering the #mypillowupcycle challenge you’ll be in with a chance to win the ultimate craft and chill package! That’s £100 to spend at LoveCrafts on crafting supplies to unwind with. 

Think 12 balls of Paintbox Yarns simply chunky to crochet your own sleep under the stars blanket; Debbie Bliss Toast Yarn for cosy bedtime sock; or a stash of DMC embroidery threads to stitching your own Good Night Moon cushion - whatever your crafty heart desires, you’ll have a £100 LoveCrafts voucher to fill your slippers with!

You could also win the eve original mattress (in a UK double or king) and two eve pillows with your choice of filling! All from eve sleep.

Dreamy project inspiration

Crafting and getting a good nights' sleep go hand in hand, what better way to quiet the buzz in our brains and wind down after a long day than with some mindful making? Here's our roundup of free relaxing craft patterns to try that will send you off into a restful slumber.

Accessorise your sleep

If getting a good night’s sleep was as easy as laying your head down, we’d all be bright eyed and bushy tailed all the time! But sometimes it takes an eye mask to block out the light, a dream catcher to tangle the nightmares, or for the little ones a sleepy mobile to help them drift off.
