Crochet Pillows - Inspiration

   A few days ago I was scrolling down my reader and I spotted one of the cutest pictures ever. Besides the awesomely gorgeous wall art there was a nice sofa with 3 round pillows, 2 of them were velvet and the other was a crochet one. It was a picutre from Danielle Thompson's Blog, when she wrote about the curtains she wanted to buy for her living room.

   I think I don't need to tell you that I fell instantly in love with said pillow. I started to search about crochet round pillows because I realized that its roundness was one of the main things that contributed to the cuteness. I saw many ideas and patterns, then I found Royal Sister's Blog. They have awesome patterns and inspiration

   Isn't that stunning? I thought that my dream pillow could come to life and was super happy, but then  I found out that their shop is on vacation, so I kept searching. I saw a few hundred more ideas until I stumbled upon Attic 24's Blog.

   Too cute and the pattern/tutorial was free, super score! I already started to crochet this beauty. It took me a while to understand the UK terms but everything is fine now and I have a few rows of my dream pillow that I'll show you soon. :D

  1. I want to see them Yadira. My auntie used to make a lot of stuff using crochet, from doilies, table runners to clothes. What I love about crochet items is its 100% handmade. Each stitch is an art made from the heart.
