Hurray! It's finished, my crochet flower patch pillow. Can't tell you how pleased I am to show you. Ready on time for the gardening season to start and to make a beginning with new and different projects.
I love the way the pillow looks, it's bright, sunny, colourful and useful. Many of my crochet projects end up somewhere in the back of a cupboard, but not this one. It will be lovely in my garden house and even on my modern couch in the sitting room.
The pillow is easy to make. Simply because there is no pattern. You can just crochet the flowers that you like and sew them on the pillow cover. I chose eight colours to work with. A project like this is perfect for left over cotton yarn.
I made daisies, simple flowers, daffodils, roses, rosebuds, narcissus and flowers that did not look like flowers at first, but turned out fine in the end :-) . I can tell you, it's a joy to work on. Do sew them on the cover randomly and tumbling over each other, to create a bit of depth. Have fun!
Wishing you a creative new week and a Happy Valentines day!
