Crochet: DIY Round Flat Circle

When I was a young girl I always saw my mom making crochet projects. It was either a shirt or table runner or anything for the windows. I really love admiring her finished projects. Every time my mom had her hook and yarn in her hands, she made crocheting look so easy and effortless. Oh, how my mom loves to crochet and to sew! Nevertheless, growing up, I could say that I didn’t have the passion for it nor in my wildest dream did I think that one day I would sew or crochet. Many times I told myself, I don’t have that talent that my mom has.

Guess what? I’m in my 30’s now and all of a sudden I want to sew something. And yes, I did just that! I thought I wanted to sew just one thing, but then this feeling of wanting to learn how to sew more has grown every day. Out of nowhere, my mind tells me that I want to crochet something for the dining and living room tables. Trust me, I’m still shocked! It’s like I just woke up and realized that this desire runs in the family. You know?

One time I was sitting on the couch when I came to a realization. I realized that my mom was in her early 30’s also when I witnessed her passion for sewing and crocheting. At first, my reaction was “uh-uh I think I shouldn’t have said that I won’t be able to do that.” Literally, it just hit me! I noticed that since I reached in my 30’s, I’m slowly getting passionate about the things that my mom really loved. I’m not sure if you have experienced that too? If you have, I would love to know!

Until next time and have a good night to all!

DIY COW PRINT THROW PILLOWS + HOBBY LOBBY MATERIALS

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I love throw pillows. Sometimes when I go to the store to look for throw pillows that I like I get disappointed because they’re pricy! One day, I was sitting on the couch and this idea of making throw pillows just flew into my head. So I was like “why not? I always have this confidence that I can do it. I’m a seamstress’ daughter and if my mom can do it, I can too! Sounds funny right? But yes, I’m determined. So, the next day I went to get some materials at Hobby Lobby.

This 12 ounce Premium Polyester Fiberfill is only $2.99 per package. One package is enough for one throw pillow. It depends on your preferences though. If you want your throw pillow to be fuller (more stuffy as I call it haha) then you can always add more stuffing inside.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Premium Polyester Fiberfill is absolutely the best performing fiberfill for pillows, dolls, stuffed toys and crafts. It offers a superior resiliency, smooth consistency, and will not bunch. It’s made from recycled materials, and it is hypoallergenic and machine-washable. Add it to toys, pillows, and much more!

I used two bandanas for each throw pillow. This bandana cost 0.99 cents only! Although you can use any material you choose. There are more expensive materials to choose if you want. For me, I just wanted to make something using inexpensive materials.

HOW TO MAKE IT?

Step 1: Put two bandanas together. Make sure each side is facing the opposite side.

Step 2: Sew each side all the way around all 3 sides leaving the 4th side open so that you can insert the filling (I call it the fluffy stuffy)

Step 3: Insert the filling to your desired thickness and firmness. Once all done, sew that last side closed to secure all that filling from coming out. Whaalahhhh….you’re done!
