Day 13: Crocheted Mini Pillow

Posted by annagrace under Days 1-100

This project is one that I’ve been working on for awhile. With my RA, I can’t do a whole lot of crocheting in one sitting without hurting my hands, so every once in awhile, I did a few lines, until I finally finished it tonight. I’ve been crocheting for a long time, but this is the first time I’ve made a pillow. I started by making squares that were about 3×3″, 2 in gray, 2 in purple. I then stitched them together with the aqua blue yarn. This ended up being about 6×6″.

For the back of the pillow, I made a 6×6″ square by alternating rows of double stitches with rows of shell stitches with the aqua blue yarn.

Sorry it looks so curvy because it’s on my knee :)

I then stitched the front piece and back piece together with the aqua yarn on three sides. I found an old tye-dye t-shirt that has a big hole in it that was the perfect blues and indigos to match the pillow, so I folded it up and stuffed it into the crocheted case. Finally, I stitched the final edge and it was done!

Sitting in my favorite chair (don’t worry, I didn’t pay that much for it :) )

I think the best part about this project is that it was absolutely free! I already had all the yarn from older projects and the stuffing was an old t-shirt! Maybe I’ll make another one so I’ll have a set… :D

Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody! I hope it was amazing for all of you, whether or not you have a significant other!
