Happy Monday everyone!
R-Chee & I are so glad you enjoyed seeing our new family pug cave. :)
We have been busy working on pillows for the new space.
I found some fabulous free patterns on Tangled Online Magazine that I have been having so much FUN combining into new patterns for this round pillow I just finished!
I made two large circles with drop down sides decorated with bobbles to cover an old pillow I had in the attic!
I just love how it turned out!
The front is so bright and cheery!
On a whim, I made a little free formed flower for the center that really makes me smile!
Here is how I made the pillow...
The front begins with a circle I made from Tangled's fabulous FREE Bullseye pattern.
The yellow and white rows that I added are from the record pillow pattern that I also followed last week to make the tummy of my Sunflower Owl Pillow. :)
I then kept increasing the circle in a mustard color wool yarn from Universal Yarn adding bobble rows to make the circle big enough to fold down and wrap the sides of the old pillow I was covering.
This is the back that I just made up using single crochet stitches and some alternating bobble rows from Lion Brand Amazing yarn and Fisherman's Wool.
After it was large enough to cover the back, I got out my handy dandy yarn needle and sewed it to the end row of the drop down sides. :)
R-Chee loves the new cushion and asked if it could be a pug bed for him. :)
He said he thinks it is big enough to park his pug butt on and watch me while I work. :)
I smiled and told him I would make him an even bigger & squishier one for his little pug butt to perch.
Somehow, I got him to agree and placed the pillow right in the center of the new comfy day bed!

Ok, momma... I am holding you to that promise!
I will go into the yarn room & pick out my colors for my pug bed ...Okey Dokey?
Okey Dokey R-Chee!
What colors do you think I should use for R-Chee's new bed?
Please leave us a note and let us know!
I cannot wait to hear your ideas!
