In the Designer's Words: "I love combining my crafts! This textured pillow has a crocheted front that was crocheted in white Lily Sugar'n Cream yarn, then colored with Design Master Tint It spray in Jade, then edged in the original white. The pillow back is sewn from a Loops & Threads fat quarter, and has a hemmed opening to insert the plush Home Elegance 14" pillow form. Make it in a weekend!"

Interesting project! I actually have never heard of a spray fabric paint that crafters use to cover yarn crafts. How long has this stuff been around? I crochet. Yes, I could make this pillow with a teal yarn and edge it in white. But I could not get the same ombre effect that the spray paint gives. I also read that it does not leave the yarn stiff as a board. This is so important!

I just love this pillow. I can see this is many places throughout my house. I am going to make a couple for my couch, I think in gray and pink pillow will go nicely with my gray couch. I think one for each of my two chairs, I think I will do in wine and pink with my chairs are wine color with black dots. And I think a couple of these for my granddaughters bed would go very nicely done in two different shades of blue to go along with her princess comforter.
