I can’t believe summer is already almost over! I feel like it just began! I’m starting classes in August to get my teaching certification and will be working again when the school year starts. I’ve been pretty busy working on new projects this month that I’m excited to share with you. I have several blankets that I’m working on and a couple smaller projects that I will be blogging about over the next couple of weeks!
First up are some little pillows I’m making for my cousin. She is getting married in November and she asked me to make a few to use as decorations. This is the first one I’ve finished and I really like it! I used the same pattern as my circle granny blanket and I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton! yarn in black and ivory.
I used the join-as-you-go method and slip stitched the finished front and back pieces together.
It’s kind of hard to see in the picture, but the back is solid black circle granny squares.
The second pillow I’m working on will be smaller and a checkerboard pattern. I’m using the same yarn as the other pillow, and working just two rounds of a granny square. I am seriously loving this pattern lately! It is so simple and quick, but I love the way it looks!
I am also working on a tutorial for this seven petal flower, so look for that later this week!
