I’ve finished my second Rosie Posie Granny Square Pillow, and I must admit that I really like how it turned out!
Links to the free tutorials for these granny squares and for this gorgeous Pom Pom Edge you can find in my previous post.
I didn’t crochet the other side of the pillow, so this is how it looks. I think that crocheting both sides of the pillow is a waste of time, which I would rather spend crocheting another project…
And the project I’m currently working on, is another pillow. This time, I found this cute Daisy granny square free tutorial on the Color ‘n Cream blog, which is one of my favorite crochet blogs, so I visit it often, because there is always something new and colorful there. And I love colors. Very much.
I just made one little change. In the beginning I did double crochets in the magic ring instead of single crochets. That way I made the flower center a bit larger.
I chose bright colors for this pillow, so it will be quite colorful and happy.
As you can see, I added the famous Pom Pom Edge again. I just couldn’t resist. Remember, I fell in love with that border…
Next time, I will show you the finished pillow and probably something relating to Christmas decoration. It’s time to think about Christmas.
Rosie Posie Grannie Square pillow No. 2
In my last post I promised to show you another Rosie Posie Grannie Square pillow, but I didn’t like how it turned out, so I started another one. After I made 6 granny squares, I realized that I didn’t have enough beige yarn. I went to my favorite yarn shop, but they didn’t have that color, so I started the famous Rosie Posie Grannie Square pillow for the third time… this time I replaced the beige yarn with white…
As I posted earlier, the pattern for these granny squares I found on the lovely Cherry Heart blog, here.
I finished the front of the pillow. As you can see, I added the beautiful Pom Pom edge, and I think that white color highlights other colors even better than beige.
I love how the third version turned out. Now, I only have to assemble the pillow, and to wait till Sunday to give it away to my dear young friend. She’s fourteen and she likes my work 🙂
The pattern for the Pom Pom Edge which I fell in love with, you can find here on the lovely blog called Once Upon a Pink Moon. Big, big thanks to Robin for this awesome free tutorial!
Rosie Posie Grannie Square pillow
I finished this pillow a few days ago, and then waited for the sunnier weather to take the photographs. So, today the sun appeared, and I took my camera and made some photos.
These granny squares are called Rosie Posie Grannie Squares, and I really enjoyed making them. The free tutorial you can find here, on the lovely Cherry Heart blog.
Look at this cute Pom Pom Edge! I recently saw this great tutorial, and just had to try it. Right away. Think it’s the cutest edge ever! Yes, I made a whole post about these little owls, but they wanted to jump into every post I wrote. They obviously love publicity.
Next time on my blog – one more Rosie Posie Grannie Squares pillow. But, that will be something totally different…
