Mini colourful pillows!!!

Back in February and in March, I was experimenting with some oval crocheted table runners, to prepare myself for this big project....

I had fun in playing with table runners, but I didn't know how to reuse my first products, that were nice but not so good to display on a table!!! ;oD

Yesterday afternoon I HAD THE IDEA !!!!!!
Easy peasy my dears : I had just to fold my projects in halves widthwise!!!!!

Follow me.....


...then, I took a hook, some colourful contrasting yarns and I started to sew the 2 halves together using just a row of slip stitches, that formed a nice chain in the front...




....and a kind of running stitch on the back....



This one resemble a heart in its final shape (after filling it with some toy stuffing)....




I sewed even the other one....



....that was completed in a flash.....



this one, instead, reminds me of a horse saddle....!!!!!......


They are ready now for some group photos.....



....and this is their final destination (yes, our sofa in the living room!) ......


...to be shared with some old friends.... ;oD ......





YIPPIE !!!!!!!!
