This will be a real quick post.

July is right around the corner (at the time of this post it’s here) and the end of school is now complete.  To kick off my first summer project I chose the Statue of Liberty Crochet Pillow by Michele Wilcox for RedHeart.  Being a native New Yorker I would be partial to the Statue of Liberty.  I must admit after living in NY for over 30 years I’ve never visited “ole lady liberty”.

My son constantly reminds me that I do not need anymore yarn.  I’ve made a conscience effort NOT to buy anymore yarn.  So far, so good.  I’m using what I have stockpiled around the house.  I look at my yarn as eye candy, he sees it as clutter, lmao.

All I needed were 16X16 pillow forms and of course I had quite the collection of the size needed.  No worries, they were on sale at the time.  Pillow forms can be found using the link below or at your favorite craft store.

My pillow was made quite differently as far as color choices.  The instructions were easy to follow and the project worked up quickly.  It took me four days to complete and that was because I’m working on other projects.

The pillow may look red but it’s really a magenta color.  That’s my handsome son below who looks thrilled to be holding a pillow.

He calls this the fakest smile ever.  This is the back of pillow that was done this way on purpose.  I figured if I got tired of looking at the front I can flip it for a different look.  Two pillows in one, hooray for me!
