Earlier this summer when Lulu made the transition from her crib to a “big girl” bed, I knew I wanted to make something pretty for it. When my mom was visiting back in June, I started on a blooming flower pillow, using the pattern from Attic24. Only instead of using dozens of colors, I decided to make one enormous white flower.
And enormous it is! It took me forever to finish this, not because the pattern was hard, but I guess I got a little bored with all the white. There were quite a few nights where Drew was either playing around with beats on his drum machine or looking for awersome music accessories while I bemoaned the fact that this project was taking forever.
Nevertheless, I’m happy with the way it came out, and my little girl loves it! The backside is a light green and the side is a dark purple, so everything coordinates with her room.
Of course, now the boys want pillows, too (only not flower pillows…) Good thing I have a couple of extra cushions laying around. I guess I’ll be added their requests to my never-ending “to crochet” list, LOL!
