Coral Points Pillow

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!

Coral Points Pillow 1 With LOGO

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.

Marshmallow Pillow

I made a Marshmallow pillow! The front is made with Lily colour yarn from a pattern I developed myself, but obviously with heavy inspiration from some patterns I found online (I’m not quite at that point where I can just make my own patterns from scratch. But modifying existing patterns? – That I can do!). It’s 35cm each side and has a heavier cotton canvas backing and an invisible zip. The sewing lessons I had as a kid and a couple of Pinterest tutorials really helped me out with the invisible zip.

Anyway – Photo time!

I feel like the Marshmallow Pillow would work nicely more as a couch cushion. But surprise! I don’t have a couch. Because my apartment is small and couches are a luxury I cannot afford the space for at the moment. But one day, one fiiiiine sunny day, I will own a couch that I can cover in so many Marshmallow Pillows that I will have to sit on the floor to admire my beautiful creation. Yep. It’ll happen!

OK. So here’s the deal. The one I’ve made is from Lily coloured yarn, and I wanna get started on the next one, but I can’t decide which colour to do it in. HELP! I’ve got Peach, Ecru and a Light Jeans colour (which is similar to the Lily, but not. So it’s not similar. But it is. I dunno.) Check it out:

Save me from my indecision! Which colour would you choose?
