Crochet Ruffle Pillow

I actually finished a project! It feels so good...I need to do this more often! 


I found this pattern late last summer in Wyoming, crocheted most of it while there, brought it back to Minnesota and it just sat so I packed it up to bring to Arizona. I just finished it 2 nights ago and it will stay here. (It's a well traveled pillow!)

My friend Stephanie supplied the beautiful vintage rhinestone and mother of pearl buttons. Seriously...they made the pillow!

In the background is a quilt top I also just finished, all it needs is to be quilted.


The pattern was in the Autumn 2012 "Crochet!" magazine (called Elegant Ruffles Pillow). It is not available in stores any longer but if you are interested it's possible to contact the magazine for instructions.
The magazine did it in red but I opted for off white.


And more Mexican Bird of Paradise are blooming.
Things are blooming so fast, the average temperature is a dry 82 degrees already but it's comfortable.

Thanks for stopping!

I love ruffles, I like to crochet. and I adore old rhinestone buttons! What is not to love about this pillow? I think I will contact the company for the pattern.

I'd love it if you would share this at "What We Accomplished Wednesday," at Green Willow Pond. It is live right now. Have a great week!

Hugs,
Deborah
