Hello everyone!! Hope you are all staying home and staying safe during this pandemic. You may find yourself with time you didn’t previously have. Many people have taken on new hobbies, learned a skill, or rediscovered something they love.
Cheeba had some inspiration from a friend, and decided to teach herself how to crochet! She has always been a crafty person; and had previously worked with yarn. Crocheting was something she had always wanted to do, but never gave herself the time to do it. So using some help from online experts, she crafted a pillow!!
This pillow took Cheeba a little less than three days to complete. She started out by making a basic granny square, following the instructions of Tuula from YouTube! While making the second granny square (much better this time, with more experience) she realized that she did not have enough yarn. At this point, Cheeba had to unravel the original square, and crochet it again from the beginning. It was no bother, she was glad to redo it, now with more experience.
To stitch the two squares together, she used a seamless join method, found on Pinterest. The post provided many different ways to stitch two granny squares together, Cheeba just personally enjoyed that method best. She first joined three sides together, with extra enforcement at the corners. Then, she stuffed a small unused satin pillow inside, before stitching the final side together.
Time is so important!! Try something new, explore things you hadn’t before! You might find something that you’re in love with. We all have the power to create wonderful things. Stay strong, may the universe be with us all.
