Scandinavian Fabric Crocheted Pillow

Here's a pillow for our 
Scandinavian Farmhouse:

I generally stay away from brown...but this fabric...I could not resist.
Our drapes are sewn with this fabric.

Back to the pillow... 
It has tassels:
 First time I've ever made tassels. :-)
So fun!

It's a total of 6 (3 each side) 3D Granny Square Motifs.
Pattern found here.
Then it was widened with 3 dc rows on the top and bottom
of each side, then the sides were joined with sc.
A three button closure.
(Scandinavian button to boot!)
It sits on the rocking chair that once belonged to the NVO's grandmother.
 That came to us all the way from a Ranch in Estancia, New Mexico.

  And of course, there must be a friend for the pillow;
a fabric pillow
with a brown crocheted edge in shells:

Have a nice day and,

Periwinkle Pillow

Periwinkle is my favorite color!

So I made this springtime pillow in celebration of that color:

This is the front:

This is the back:

It's a total of 16 (8 each side) 3D Granny Square Motifs.
Pattern found here.

  I added a double ruffled border/edge for
an extra kick!
Border pattern is a variation of 
 "The La Vie En Rose" border pattern, found here
but it's done on both sides.
The first border was crocheted after the two pieces were crocheted together,
the the second border was crocheted to the bottom of the first border.

It has a two button enclosure:

Happy Spring!
