Mama’s Pillow

19 Sep

Well, the jig is up by now, and if I’ve scheduled this post correctly, I am *at this moment* attending Husband’s grandmother’s surprise 80th birthday party (Happy Birthday, Mama!)!

I decided to make Mama a pillow.  I started with two identical squares:

And turned one into this:

Then, because I get bored very easily, I changed the pattern for the other side of the pillow, and it turned out like this:

It was originally all white except for the flower, but I thought this side needed more color, so I just made a big long chain of purple & white together & wove it through a row of dcs.

The other side looks like this:

And, because I just happened to walk by this basket and thought it matched perfectly, Here’s how Mama’s present looks:

Yes, Mama got the scarf from Friday’s post.  She would have gotten the socks, too, but they’re already slated for someone else.  I didn’t have any ribbon long enough, and then suddenly noticed the (purple, even) scarf sitting right on my crafting table!  Perfect!  I hope she likes it! })i({
