Spring Fling Pillow – FINISHED PROJECT

A few nights ago, I finished off the Spring Fling Pillow for Cathy’s Hook Club (see here for details), and I’m very happy with it! I made a few modifications to the original pattern by Red Heart, but nothing too drastic: I kept the pillow 12×12″, but stitched more repeats to give a tighter stitch, then added a few rows of single crochet border around the two pillow faces and also put in a zipper so that I can change the pillow inside or wash it.

More experienced crocheters said it took maybe 5-6 hours to complete; for me, I worked on it little and not very often! I think in total it probably took me 15 hours, which, considering I started crocheting at the beginning of the year, isn’t bad, I think! It’s well worth a try if you’re interested, and changing up the colors makes a dramatic difference. To see the creativity of others in the Hook Club, check out the photo gallery.

I’m not sure what I’ll do with the pillow yet. I’m thinking of giving it to my 1-year-old niece, Ellie. 🙂
