I am not much of a Pillow Maker as the whole sewing process is terribly fussy.
But a Crocheted Pillow ... it was a lot of fun!
Red and White is a classic color combination so I used them for the checkerboard border. The back is exactly the same as the front except done all in natural wool.
Both the front and the back have a Dark Lavender 3 round granny border. I slip-stitched them wrong sides together around 3 sides, stuffed in the pillow form, and slip-stitched the last side.
It was a Smashing Success and I plan on making lots more pillows this way! This beauty didn't sit on my chair too long ... it whisked it's way across to town to live at my friend Joanna's house. =)
