crochet nutty pillow done!


it’s friday and i hope you will enjoy the weekend! 

here are some pictures of the bright colored crochet nutty pillow that i started september last year, more info here. this week i finally completed the project. it is made entirely of leftover yarn.

inside is a pillow made from an old duvet cover filled with leftover yarn, yarn ends and leftover crochet projects. i measured to find the middle on both sides and pulled needle and yarn through.

the crochet cushion cover i washed and after it was dried, i have put the sewed cushion in it and i could easily pull the yarn on both sides through the center and attach the buttons, then i sewed the edge.

the nutty pillow is a large floor cushion of almost 90 cm in diameter, it feels like a comfortable mattrass and i designed it for two cats to relax and sleep on it. i hope they like the neon details!

Have a lovely weekend and until next time!

  7. Great use of leftover yarn – my cat would love one of those!! Being an astronomy geek the bright yarn spiralling into the centre reminds me of the Event Horizon from which you cannot escape a black hole. Although it sounds rather exciting, I’m not sure I ever want to undergo spaghettification!

  8. Great job! What a way to use up scrap yarn :} Thanks for sharing!
