Crochet Pillow - They Just Invite Cuddling
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Pillows were originally thought to be used only by wealthy Asian men, they've even been found in Egyptian tombs.  In the Tudor era of England it was believed only women giving birth and weak men were entitled to use pillows.  The pillow, such a simple thing, yet brings so much comfort to all of us.

Crochet pillows are one of the easiest ways to add color to your home décor and they’re the perfect decorating accessory.  They can add warmth and coziness to a favorite chair, sofa, window seat or simply piled on the floor to use for family movie nights.  

Just say no to regular old run of the mill pillows!  A crocheted pillow, worked up in yarn, can be a quick and easy afternoon project.  How to crochet a pillow?  Probably the easiest crochet pattern to start with is the granny square.  Crocheted granny squares are simple, colorful and currently more popular than they’ve ever been.  They’re a perfect way to use up left over yarn and simply by changing colors and textures, no two squares will be the same. 

How do you know which pillow stuffing will work the best?  It’s really your choice.  I know some people who stuff their pillows with fabric scraps they’ve accumulated.  Feathers and down sit at the top of the “ahhhh list”.  Come on, who doesn’t love the feeling of a down pillow, right?  However, it’s not the most budget friendly choice.  Foam pillow inserts are good for keeping their shape and are readily available in all different shapes and sizes.  My personal favorite is a plain old polyester fiberfill.  It’s inexpensive, washable and non-allergenic.  

To trim or not to trim, that’s the question.  You can embellish your newly made pillow or choose to leave it plain.  Fabric and upholstery shops have tons of pre-made trims you can pick from to hand stitch around the edge of your pillow.  You could also add fringe, ruffles, tassels, or try a combination.  

Crochet pillows can be made to go with any style of home décor.  Crocheting decorative pillows is a budget friendly way to give your home that extra pop.  It’s a great way to practice different crochet stitches, use up your yarn stash and beautify your home at the same time.  They also make wonderful gifts for those you love.   If you’re as obsessed with crochet as I am, then you’ll love filling your home with these cuddly creations as there are many crochet pillow patterns to choose from.
