A quick review on sizing…the sizing as pictured is:

  • Red pillow shown: 14 inches wide and 14 inches tall
  • Green Pillow Shown: 12 inches wide and 12 inches tall

Ok let’s get started!

For today’s tutorial, you’ll need your two pillow panels plus the pillow form, matching yarn, scissors, and the K crochet hook.

Begin by sandwiching two pillow panels together and tie yarn into the upper left corner of both panels.  Chain 1, then work 3 single crochet into the corner space/stitch.  *Work a sc into each stitch along the edges of both panels seaming them together, then work 4 sc into the corner.  Repeat from * around the square until three sides have been completed.

Next, place the pillow form into the pouch you just created.  Continue single crochet stitches along the rest of the way around the pillow, then fasten off.  Weave any remaining tails with your tapestry needle.
