Crochet Pillow Short Cut

I crocheted 16 Circle Granny blocks.
It's Wonderful free pattern by Wise Craft, but I was done crocheting grannies.
 I also started a Wool Eater Blanket.
It too is a wonderful free pattern by Sarah London, but my arthritic hands just couldn't handle anymore.
So there sat 14" squares of finished crochet that were NOT going to be added to.
Pillows would require more crochet for a back or I'd have to put them together and that would look stupid.
Why not use FABRIC!!!!?????
::I stitched up two envelope style backs::
::Pinned the crochet and fabric right-sides together::
::Sewed a WIDE zig-zag around the edge to hold everything in place::
::Went back on used a straight stitch to secure the two sides::
 Now I have two wonderful 14" pillow covers covering pillows.
They look so much better on the couch than in the UFO pile in my sewing room!

  1. I think I like them better than I would if both sides were crocheted.


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. It really makes my day!

Sorry about the word verification--my blog was hijacked not too long ago, so now I have to take robo-cautions.
