Flower Garden Pillow

The flower garden pillow turned out great! I used a natural linen fabric to make a pillow case and added a tie and a coordinating piece of fabric to cover the pillow form on the side. I think the pillow ended up being about 16 inches square.
I've started working on another one for myself because I gave this one to Jennifer as a birthday gift. :) Happy Birthday, Jenn!

Wow, that turned out AMAZING! How long did it take you to make?

Hi Kristy,
It did take quite a while to make. :) Although, things with a newborn around are taking a lot longer to get finished than before. I think it took about 15 to 20 minutes to crochet each flower and then 3-4 hours of stitching it together and weaving in all the ends of the yarn. It maybe took an hour to sew the pillow cover itself. So, it took me about a week and a half to finish... I think it was worth it though. :) Hope you have a great day! Jessica

It's absolutely beautiful! That's quite an accomplishment with a newborn too!
