Crocheted Pillows

Forget paying big bucks at the mall for those designer pillows. You can be the designer and brighten up your decor at home and at the office.

It's really simple. Here's how you do it. Take a pillow form, or one of those pillows off your couch, and measure it. Subtract one inch off each side to get the size you need to crochet the cover. This makes the pillow firm. If you want a softer pillow, then simply increase the size of the cover.

The easiest way to do the cover is with single crochet stitches. If you make several pillow covers for your couch, you can do each one in a different color.

Let your imagination run wild here, and you can go into business for yourself.
