Have you tried Celtic Tiles overlay crochet pattern yet? It is FREE and you can find it HERE (there is also a video available HERE - made by Esther of It's All In A Nutshell). This pattern was written with blanket in mind. But as far as it’s about a crochet square, it can be used in many other ways. And one of them is to make a pillow.
I have been a little bit addicted to making Celtic squares recently, so I finished more pieces than I actually needed. Four of them were made with Stone Washed yarn* by Scheepjes in Amazonite shade (813). I also had a new pillow cover from IKEA in nice cream shade. So I thought it might be nice to join squares and to stitch finished crocheted decoration onto ready pillow cover. And here is the result!
As you can see large crocheted square is a little bit smaller than the pillowcase. So I centered my Celtic decoration leaving a narrow fabric border. Quick and easy. And unique gift (for yourself or your friends) is ready in almost no time.
If you are curious about how much yarn was used – each square weights approx. 40g (valid for Stone Washed and 4mm Clover Soft touch hook*).
I am sometimes asked what is the best way to stitch crocheted pieces to fabric. I don’t really know what is the best way, but I always do that by hand with running sewing stitch. I use a needle and yarn of the same color as the border of my crocheted decoration.
Crocheted blankets are wonderful, but sometimes it takes forever to finish them. But on the other hand making 1 small square now and then can be a very nice break from a large project. And if your blanket is never finished you can still use ready squares. To make a pillow, for example. :)
Have a nice weekend,
