...two boys, two pillows !!!!

In these days I continue, at least I try, to put some order in my stuff crammed everywhere in my studio....!!!
So, in a little drawer, I found my big granny squares (look here), that were considered as blocks for future blankets....cough! cough! Did I say/write something like that? Honestly, I'm not so ambitious as a  rookie crocheter!!! Then, I decided to use them to sew a couple of pillows for Matteo and Tobia....

Each pillow consists of four granny squares (every granny is done of 7 rounds, using a 4mm hook), joined together with a cross (in two different colours) of single crochet stitches. The border is made up of 4 rows (each row a diverse color) in single crochet (this time I've used a 5 mm hook). The back of the pillows is done with a felt square (43x43cm) sewed using blanket (you see the irony???) stitch...

So, one pillow for Tobia...

...and one for Matteo!!!

.... and they are both happy (unbelievable!!!) of their new gifts from mum!!!
