Once upon a time I was a professional costume designer/builder. Then I met a boy. You know how that goes. Now I am a Stay At Home Mom in NJ. We have twin girls who were born in July '07. The artist in me can not stay still, and we could use more income, so here I am! I love creating knit and crochet patterns, sewing (obviously!), book making, well...creating just about anything.
We also have a creative hobby. In some of our free time we are Medieval Re-creationists.
You can learn more about me, and see lots of fun snaps of my children and other creations on my blog, ~or~ You can keep tabs on my creations on my facebook page, both are linked below with my other crafty pages.
Thanks for stopping by!
This fun ruffled pillow cover will add some flair to any room! It can be made to cover any size pillow you want. I have written the pattern for the pillow I was covering, but I have included notes on how to adjust the size. You can also change the yarn and the gauge if that is your wish. Have fun!
Whatever size you want! My sample covers a small pillow that is 10.5" wide and 7.5" tall.
A ~ Red Heart With Love in Hot Pink 1701
B ~ Red Heart Super Saver in Burgundy 0376
C ~ Red Heart Super Saver in Pumpkin 0254
US 10 1/2 /6.50 mm circulars (or long single points, just be sure there is enough room for the width of your pillow.) Or whatever size works with your yarn
My gauge was 16 sts in 4", but instructions are written for adjusting for your own gauge.
