Well it’s been busy! Have started my new job which included a couple of months in Germany. All the while trying to find a new apartment to move in to back in Krakow. I finally got back in to town and within a week had moved in to a beautiful new place. Am not used to living somewhere so nice… I still need to get used to having a dishwashing machine… I keep going to hand wash my dishes. #firstworldproblems
Anyway, while I work on that, I have crocheted the first item for the new place! A pillow for the couch (yay I have a couch finally!). And to make matters confusing, here is a pic of it on the armchair. Yeah, I am a proper adult with an armchair AND a couch. Woo!
Made from coral cotton yarn it seems pretty durable. For the cover, I used fabric from old bedsheets that we no longer use. I couldn’t be assed dealing with a zipper, so I decided to try out a envelope style cover (link HERE to the directions I used). The envelope method is like a bajillion times easier than trying to get a hidden zipper in there. Do recommend.
The pattern used is the same one I used for my Blue Jeans Triangle Scarf that I made a little while ago. You can find the pattern on my pattern blog HERE if you are interested! It’s such a nice pattern that’s really easy to execute and can be used in so many different ways.
